León, Nicaragua - November 13, 2012

Pat & Debbie in Playas del Coco

Well, it seems like the "rain, rain go away, come again another day" song really works! After a very rainy October the first part of November has been sunny and warm.  With the advent of November came the realization that it was time to renew our visitor's visa here in Nicaragua and a trip to Costa Rica was necessary.  For this trip we decided to visit Playas del Coco which is along the Pacific coast of Costa Rica. We also enjoyed the company of another couple in our congregation - Brad and Lydia. We stayed at a place called Casa Lora in one of their little houses. The grounds were truly tropical with a nice central swimming pool. The beach at Playas del Coco is very nice but not really spectacular in any way. The small village reminded us of places in Mexico where almost everyone you meet is trying to get you to sit in on a "90 minute presentation".
