Friday, 23 March: After two more days of smooth sailing and nice weather, this morning we arrived in the familiar port of Puntarenas. We visited here in 2013 on our world cruise and once again we enjoyed walking around the craft market next to the ship.
Last time we did a boat cruise looking for crocodiles and macaws, so today we decided just to do some exploring on foot to get a feel for the town.
Typical small town with church and museum, a bit shabby. The local people are very friendly to tourists and there were many exchanges of “Buenos Dias” as we walked around.
Interesting to note that most houses had bars on the windows and doors and many properties were surrounded by barbed wire and razor wire. I don’t think I would like to walk around these areas after dark.
