We were up with the roosters in Puerto Viejo. We had to truck it from the Caribbean coast back to the interior of Costa Rica to pick up Lauren’s dad from San Jose airport.
We waved goodbye to the Atlantic knowing soon enough we would be seeing the waters of the Pacific. One of my favorite parts about Central America is you can drive from ocean to ocean in one day. Bored of the Caribbean? Let’s check out the Pacific!
After we grabbed Lauren’s dad we headed out to the Pacific. First order of business, Lunch and drinks!
After fueling up we headed to Playa Bejuco, Costa Rica. A small little beachside community south of Jaco and north of Manuel Antonio. A perfect basecamp for relaxing on the beach and taking in the sights. This time Carly found a nice little beachhouse for us to stay in while Laurens dad visited.
We unloaded our junk and hit the beach!
We spent the next week exploring the area and eating/drinking our faces off! My favorite kind of activity.
Ed working the grill. These Central American coals take finesse!
Many an Imperial were drank. The official beer of Costa Rica.
Every night was spent beachside watching the amazing sunsets.
We were there for the “Super Moon” as well.

It was nice to take life in the slow lane and enjoy some family time.
After a week of hanging out in Playa Bejuco it was back to the airport once again to drop off Lauren’s folks and prepare to pick my Mom up the next day.
I am getting to know the San Jose Airport pretty intimately….
