The Beach by the Red Car

Destination: Playa Chiquita

Looking for a less crowded beach. Calmer, more pools to swim in. Playa Chiquita is our destination. No car access. No visible paths in.  Lucky conversation with a friendly guy that reveals a tiny trail next to “the red car over there.” (So grateful to have my Spanish!) We squish along the muddy trail that heads through the jungle toward the ocean, overhead covered by guava and palms. Rocky pools. Sun emerges as we search for urchins, anemones, crabs and even a big old green sea slug. My daughter tries to pry it from its rock and POOF she is inked with crimson plumes! Another amazing day...
