SUP Costa Rica Day 4:
Happy Birthday Christian!!
We woke at 5am to meet up with Tito from Uvita 360 to check out Dominical for a sunrise surf session. A decent swell came in and the waves were a little heavy for us so we went back to Playa Uvita where the waves are perfect. After a few hours of surfing (the first time Christian surfed on her birthday!) we went to Playa Ventana where we explored some incredible sea caves. First, we took our Pau Hana Big EZ Air SUPs out to sea to check out some caves for possible deep water soloing but the sea was too rough to enter. So we explored some other caves right off the beach that were incredible. This place is the closest thing to paradise we have ever seen. Mountains and jungle meet the coast where every beach is a post card lined with coconut palm trees and perfect surf.
For dinner we went to a local grocery store to get some food to grill back at Villas de Oros. We couldn’t decide between steak or chicken so we got both! The fruit we got from the market was unbelievable, so colorful and so juicy!! We sat and ate with Vikki the owner of Villas de Oros and she told us some great stories about this land and the beautiful creatures that live here. She has been so wonderful and made this trip so special for us we couldn’t be more grateful to have met her. We love this place so much we have decided to extend our stay for two more nights in the jungle to the ocean! Tomorrow we are hiking from Villas de Oros through the jungle with our guide Dobe, Vikki’s dog!! That’s right, a dog is our guide through the JUNGLE!
