July 17 - 19, 2014...Brasilito, Playa Conchal, Guanacaste Provience, Costa Rica

"You won't believe it, but I see golden arches", I radioed with surprise to Kev as we were caught in roadworks and bumper to bumper of mid day truck traffic of Liberia. We decided that this would be a great time to stop for lunch before heading over to our destination on the coast.  No we did not stop at McDonald's, but food chose a food court located across from the icon!  

After several dirt road detours, back tracking, and help from kind locals we managed to locate our first choice of accommodations by 3pm.  We were in luck, the small boutique 9 room Conchal Hotel, had an available room.  Kev and I thoroughly enjoyed our time here.  We spent the remainder of our stay walking to the tiny seashell and crystalline waters of Playa Conchal each morning to swim and lounge, then walking back to the hotel by 3pm to recover and enjoy superb gourmet cooking by the hotel owners Hilda & Simon in the evening.  A most enjoyable schedule!
