News from Malpaís, Santa Teresa, Playa Hermosa

February 26, 2010

Welcome to first-time visitors Mark Williams and Laura Ringler from Portland, Oregon, who stayed a week on the OsaPeninsula and also toured Manuel Antonio and Monteverde before flying to Tambor for a 24-hour visit with Mark’s uncle, Gale, in Santa Teresa. Laura signed up for a surfing lesson and was surfing after 15 minutes of instruction on shore; her teacher says she’s “a natural.”

Ginny and Dave Griggs from Cerritos, California, were our guests for two weeks. They enjoyed the beach walks, sunsets and tide pools, and were very impressed with the restaurants in the area, especially Milarepa and Trópico Latino in Santa Teresa. They also joined tours to Isla Tortuga, Tortuguero, Monteverde and Arenal before returning to the United States.
