Beaches beaches and more beaches

We are still in Puerto Viejo. The area is just beach after beach after beach. There is a beach for every sand, tan sand, beaches with people, empty beaches, beaches for surfing, beaches for swimming, even a beach with snorkeling.

Yesterday, we renting bicycles and rode out to Uva, the beach with the snorkeling. The day was perfect with clear blue skies and the water was the calmest that we have seen. The bicycling was interesting. I think that it has been 20 years since I rode and bike and I'm not very happy to say that since it makes me feel kind of old. Luckily it was like riding a bike and I didnt fall or anything. The roads here are interesting...they are in the process of improving them but not in any sort linear order. I assume that they are doing the worst spots first. There were some stretches that were brand new and paved that day and some spots were horribly bumpy which made our butts hurt really bad. When we got back to the hotel, we were spent. Probably the most tired we have been in a long time.
