After breakfast we sat by the pool. As soon as I was going to sit down, I noticed a large iguana. It was bigger than any I’d seen so far. It wasn’t afraid of me, but it wasn’t coming at me either. I took a few pictures and left it alone. It seemed to like to be in the sun. I still needed to pack up my bags so I didn’t stay too long. After packing up, we dragged our bags down a huge hill to the reception area. We waited a long time before the van picked us up. It only took us up the hill to Manual Antonio and dropped us off at a hotel.
The Interbus picked us up and then the Grayline took us to Dominical, small village on the coast. I recommend that you check the company schedules before you book the trip. Even though Gray Line and Interbus cost the same, the schedules are much different. Since we had about 45 minutes to wait, we went to the restaurant across the street, Avion. Part of it was an old plane. Again, it overlooked the ocean. The food was delicious and the wait staff was very fast. We ate quickly and got back in time for the bus. Our trip was about 45 minutes. The roads were good until we got into Dominical. The van drove up a side road which was very rocky. I thought we were going into the outback. As we entered the city, we saw only a few small restaurants. There were not many hotels and the roads were very bumpy. About one mile up the road was our hotel, Villa Rio Mars. More to come tomorrow about our stay in Dominical.
