Will there be construction nearby during our stay?
We arrived to our beautiful Caribbean-style home in the jungle totally ready to wake up to the sound of howler monkeys…howling? But the sound of construction next door at 6am threw a monkey wrench in that plan.
We’d seen the construction going on next door when we moved in the day before, we even asked the workers for directions. That should have warned us. Six am, though, is not 3pm. While I had some understanding of the fact that we were in a tropical country; the sun is too hot by noon, and everything is completely dark by 5pm, so work needs to be completed early, While that is fair enough, I wish we’d known about the construction in the planning stage, Any excuse to put the kids to bed earlier so that we’d be awake before the work could disturb our sleep.
