We just spent a very relaxing few days in Pavones, which is a small surf town where if you wear anything but your bathing suit and flip flops you are over dressed.  Pavones is about two hours south of Golfito, known for having the second longest left point break that runs the entire length of town. Pavones does not have any ATM’s, no gas stations, only two small convenient stores (smaller than a 7-11 store), internet is hit or miss (mostly miss) and the electricity cycles off at least 2 times a day. Getting to Pavones is an adventure, the roads are dusty, very bumpy, rough and there are a few bridges that need to be crossed that are quite scary; thank goodness Dave is the driver.  Pavones to us is very relaxing, a get away from the hustle/bustle of Golfito social scene and a time to body surf and catch up on reading and sleep.

Here is part of the scenery that you can see on the way to Pavones.  This is a view of Zancudo and the Pacific Ocean.

We stayed at La Ponderosa which is run by an American couple Marshall and Angela.  The beach is right across the dirt road and you can hear the waves crashing at night.

Road in Pavones

There are so many cool trees in Pavones with some cool roots.

I am usually behind the lens in photos, but Dave thought it would be cool to take a photo of me since my camera strap matched my outfit.

Every day there was so peaceful.  It felt like we were in another world with the sky being so blue, the clouds so brilliantly white, the greens of the trees and the blue and turquoise water.  Here are just a few of the photos I took, it was hard to chose only a few.
