Costa Rica 2022, Day 9

Saturday, February 19

Today was our last full day at Tango Mar. I was feeling energetic so I went for a run on the beach before breakfast. For you Strava users, I became the “local legend” of this beach segment! Mike came with me to take some pictures.

After taking some pictures of this Limpkin I tested out the hammock. It was quite comfortable!

After breakfast we packed up our hiking gear and drove out to the main road. We saw this Crested Caracara while passing by the golf course. It is a type of falcon.

We noticed these fences during our drive. It is quite common to use small tree trunks or branches that have been cleared from an area as fence posts.

Our plan for the morning was to hike through Cabo Blanco state park to the ocean and back. The front desk staff told me we couldn’t miss it because we just needed to turn left from the resort and follow the main road.

Unfortunately that was not true. I was having trouble with my phone so I was unable to use Waze to find our way. We ended up getting lost. The road split twice – once we went down the wrong one and had to backtrack. We ended up driving all the way to Santa Theresa. It was very crowded and touristy there so we didn’t hang around. We were getting frustrated and tired and decided to just head back.

Back at our resort we enjoyed lunch by the pool.

We relaxed by the pool and restaurant for the rest of the day and treated ourselves to a yummy milkshake later in the afternoon.

The lasagne I had for dinner was very good.

We packed our things so we could head out right after breakfast the next morning. We had a long drive ahead of us.
