Woke up to a fabulous cooked breakfast at Cafe Rico, preceded by a bowl of fresh exotic fruit from the garden. Could this be the best breakfast in Puerto Viejo? We think so and there is no hint of bias even though it is run by our extended family Roger and Lisa with help from Ruth. After weeks of rain, Puerto Viejo now is sunny, hot and humid and we have spent the day ambling around this lovely Caribbean village. Malcolm wins award for adventure by hiring a bike for the afternoon. A quick guided tour. Of Ruthies new place then dinner at Stashu's with Roger, Lisa and Ruthie to the accompaniment of a tropical rain storm outside!
The lifestyle is easy and relaxed, no hurry here. Tourism is an important income, everyone has at least two businesses, eg. Roger and Lisa with the cafe, cabinas, laundry and bikes as well as the book swap or buy, all adding to the quirky charm of this place.

Cafe Rico

Perfect mix
Books, bikes, and breakfast sounds like my kind of place! Lovely to see these pics, even if you took the sunshine with you when you left snowy New York!

You stole our sunshine
Looks amazing. Got to say I am pretty envious it has rained non stop here not been able to do anything outdoors. Cocktails look fabulous, I could get used to that way of life. X
