We will be in Puerto Viejo next week and have a free day. We were hoping to go to the Pure Jungle Spa in Puerto Viejo, but where we are staying is a bit too far to walk there. We are staying at the Mother Dear cottages which are near Banana Azul and some of those hotels. Would it be pretty easy to get a cab to take us to the spa? We don't speak Spanish, not sure if that will be an obstacle. And how much would we expect to pay for a cab to take us about 3km?
Also, since we have that free day in Puerto Viejo, does anyone have any recommendations for exceptionally beautiful beaches in the area? Preferably one that is safe for wading/swimming in as well?
