Sunning in Manuel Antonio

Destination: Manuel Antonio

This was the most relaxing and lazy day I have had in Costa Rica so far. After sleeping in late and leisurely getting ready for the day, we headed to the beach. (It was also easy to sleep really late because the beds at The Babaloo are so comfortable!)

We stopped at The Karahe (pronounced caraje) for brunch before planting ourselves in the sand. A big shrimp and rice plate hit the spot. After brunch and a big cup of coffee to wash it all down, we walked down the beach toward Quepos and located a lovely little spot to nestle into the white sand.

The day passed as many do when you are at the beach; a little reading, a little napping, many trips to the water and just as many to re-apply sun block. The water was beautiful and the waves were small. However, there was a strong undertow I didn't feel like fighting, so I stayed close to shore.

Late afternoon brought with it a thunder storm which still has not passed (it is about 10:00 pm now). With too little energy to brave the storm tonight, we have stayed in and have decided to call it an early night.
