Where: Harmony Hotel in Nosara, Costa Rica
When: last week
Why: We were in Costa Rica stranded for three days because Jet Blue cancelled all flights. (Thank you Jet Blue.)
I went to mail a thank you letter to Adrian, our wonderful guide, at the Corcovado tent camp. His address: Sierpe de Osa, 25 Metros al Sur de la Plaza de Fútbol.
“Will my letter make it with that address?” I asked Sebastian, the concierge.
“Oh yes,” he said, “Usually the address is To the Right of the Orange Tree.”
“What if it’s been cut down,” I ask nervously.
“Oh, that would be a problem,” he says.
“But, every town we’ve been to has a school, a church, and a soccer field,” piped in the English woman also at the front desk.
“Right,” we all agreed, “the soccer field isn’t going away.”
“It’ll get there,” said Sebastian.
“It’s the Tico Pura Vida,” he said.
