The Go Go’s have a song called This Town. The lyrics go, This town is our town, this town so glamorous. Golfito is anything but glamorous, as I have mentioned before Dave calls it “a dirty little port town”. I have learned to love Golfito; it really grows on you. Here is a cool picture of Golfito from 1976 and one from more recent years. It has not changed much at all.
We ate langosta and pargo entero. Both were really good. Dave and I swam in the warm water. Although the tide was coming in there was a strong tide pulling us out quickly. We had to fight it, we could have been washed out to sea. In the end it was a great day.
We then headed to Latitude 8*. We could not finish out our trip without a final visit to see all our gringo friends. Latitude 8* is a fun place where the local gringos hang out to watch football, listen to 80’s music and tell tall tales. Sally and John are the owners and they are hilarious. Sally lets visitors write their name, date and where they are from on the ceiling. It is fun to see where people have come from. Here is our ceiling shot.
