Santa Sighting

We went to Puntarenas yesterday to buy more gifts for the kid's Christmas party this Friday. I hadn't been to Puntarenas in awhile and was impressed how great the roads were. Even street lights. The town was buzzing with people doing their holiday shopping. It was crowded and HOT but when I saw Santa in his suit, I was grateful to be wearing shorts! Barely any Gringos in Puntarenas. My girlfriend and I are tall blondes so we stuck out like Santa on a Florida beach in July!
It was really crowded too!

It was incredible to see all the toys, pinatas, and Christmas decorations on sale. Costa Ricans love Christmas! They work all year for their Christmas bonus (one month's salary) so they have extra money to spend for Christmas.
