Meant to visit Barva National Park before returning the car, but came to a consensus that we might be little too low on the fuel to get to the nearest gas station if we were to squeeze in the national park before pumping a gallon or so.
Conversely, had we had spared time to pump gas at the nearest station, we wouldn’t have had enough time to explore the park knowing that the last entry to the park is usually 14:00~15:00 (or even earlier for the lengthier trails) with the actual closure of 16:00.
All those into considerations, we ended up in the town named the same as the national park for a quick pit stop to refuel the tank, stroll, much needed playground for Felix and late lunch/early dinner @ Restaurante Marisqueria el Banco Marino before our return flight. My mixed seafood and Felix's grilled white fillet fish were both tasty! For about $10+/dish, they are unbeatable!
