We’ve spent the last 10 days in Puerto Viejo, a chilled beach town in Costa Rica. The beaches in town aren’t great and it takes some effort to get to the best ones. Luckily the journey is part of the fun as you can rent bikes for $5 a day and cycle an hour along flat road to get here, Punta Uva beach. It’s a beautiful ride through rainforest, with little traffic and the lush green landscape reminded me of Bali – very Eat Pray Love.
