My first entry in my travel blog in two years (almost exactly) was going to start describing the terrible, nauseating flight I had from Charlotte, NC to San Jose, Costa Rica. However, shortly after arriving in San Jose a Dutch friend messaged me about the Malaysian Airlines tragedy over Ukraine, a flight departing from a city I once flew out of …

... Palm' is. That was the main ingredient. 5. Went to the movies only to find a super long line and a lady telling us that the movie we wanted to see was sold out. We'll be back next week. Must partake in half price Wednesdays. 6. Did my homework tonight :) 7. Plans are set for the weekend- volcano/geyser on Saturday with 6 gals and canopy tour on Sunday with 4 gals. And Friday may just include a field trip to a Costa Rican club. Research says that immersion is the best teacher ;) Hasta ...

Notes on Driving in Costa Rica

A travel blog entry by jfshannon


... going up hill and it's a blind turn. 4.) The maximum speed in Costa Rica is 40 km/hr. That's why it takes an hour to go 25km. There are no straight roads. 5.) The signs that indicate distance to a destination are merely suggestions. Today on our way to our hotel we passed a sign indicating that San Jose was 92 km away. We drove for another several minutes only to pass another sign indicating again that San Jose ...

... enrol in English classes at night after a day at work and some are even sponsored through their business to learn English. Therefore, the hours of work for TESOL teachers are from 4:00 - 9:00 but some do offer early morning classes from 6:00. If I was to take one of these positions, I would never see Morgan. I would also spend a lot of time traveling through the city on public transport at night - not ...

The Victories of a Foreigner

... touristy but it was nice to see so many Americans and hear a lot of English. The water was also incredibly warm. I'm excited for what we'll do on the upcoming two-day weekend!

I'd probably have more pictures if I was carrying around my iphone around but at least I don't have to worry about breaking this phone. I plan on bedazzling it and taking quality shots with its incredibly limited pixel count, much like the days of middle school.

    Comfortable beds, hot water, tv and a fan in the room.

    We stayed for just a night. The room was large and full of character. There were several places nearby to eat, but San Jose wasn't the sort of place to hang out at night. The rooms are close to the railway track which was a bit noisy. We also had a lot of trouble actually finding the place (we were driving).

    Stay at home in San Jose!!!!


    We stayed in this B&B our last night in San Jose and It was a really good choice. Because it's a small B&B, you get the personal attention from the owner and the people who work there. The breakfast offered a pleasant opportunity to connect with the other guests. Thanks Kurt, you are the best.

    Great place


    We stayed in Casa 69 in San Jose and we couldn't be more pleased. Casa 69 is just an amazing place. Rooms are large and have everything you need for a comfortable stay. Kurt is amazing and makes his best to give you a great stay. When we arrived to San Jose the air company had just loose one of our bags. Kurt was very helpful and even though we were leaving the next day we offered to stay with all the data to contact the airline. We also got up earlier to make us breakfast. We were there only for a night but we definite would stay again and recommend Casa 69.

    Loved itand Would Definately Return


    This bed and breakfast is truly a Gem! They arranged taxi service from the airport for us. We stayed in the first room downstairs with thwo doubles as there were three of us. It was really spacious with ample closet space and large bathroom; however, I would reccomend one of the rooms outside (which i think are only doubles and kings) but have large windows are are a it more open.



    My wife and I are experienced international travelers who needed to do work during the summer of 2007 at one of the universities in San Jose, Costa Rica. Before leaving for any destination we prepare ourselves with as much pertinent and updated information we can get our hands on.

    I can't say enough nice things about Casa 69


    My wife and I have traveled to Costa Rica many times: my wife goes every couple of years to take advanced Spanish classes and usually lives with a host family for a couple of weeks, then I join her and we travel for a while. Generally, we are in San Jose for a day or two when I first arrive and then for an evening before we fly back. So we have stayed at (or surveyed) numerous places in San Jose.

    Loved Casa 69


    Casa 69 was like a home away from home. The bed and breakfast offered friendly and helpful staff in an intimate setting. The breakfast was remarkable. Unlike many free breakfasts you get more than enough to eat and the excellent food (fresh fruit, cooked breakfast and meat platter with practically a whole loaf of bread!) is served to you on a lovely patio shaded by a mini jungle growing right in the middle of the hotel. Ask for the double with the king bed on the top floor. The room is beautiful. The hotel was so relaxing I didn't want to leave in the mornings and ended up staying in San Jose many more nights than I had planned.

    Rave Reviews


    This was our second trip to Casa 69, we loved it so much the first visit. Everything is clean and safe, and the host is TERRIFIC!

    The service and help with many questions about the area, were far beyond our expectations. I don't know how they do what they do for such reasonable room rates. Bravo on the breakfast, we couldn't possibly eat all of the food available. We would return!

    Winter Getaway at Casa 69


    The CASA 69 B&B gave new meaning to the concept of Bed and Breakfast accommodations. I have experienced B&Bs in Europe and Casa 69 is in a class of its own. The Casa 69 was a very friendly B&B which is centrally located and walking distance to the downtown. The staff and the owner, Kurt, made my stay at Casa 69 an experience that I will fondly remember and cherish until my next visit. Casa 69 guests were very interesting and friendly and they came from many parts of United States, Europe, Russia, Costa Rica and Canada.

    Lovely place to stay


    We loved Case 69! We stayed at Casa 69 on our way to Puerto Viejo and after. This B & B is very tastefully decorated and has beautiful works of art. Kurt will go out of his way to make your experience comfortable and pleasant. Casa 69 is located within walking distance to museums and and shopping.

    The rooms are nice size and are tastefull. Kurt and his staff are wonderfull.

    Hard to do better than Casa Tua 69 in San Jose


    We live and own hotel in Puerto Viejo. We constantly are coming to San Jose to shop or just get some retail therapy.

    After staying at many places, we always stay at Casa 69. For what you get, it has to be the best deal in town.

    All rooms are very nice and well appointed with TV, security safes and nicely tiled larger than normal bathrooms.

    Mattresses are good quality as are all sheets and towels.

    Breakfast is full and is served in a private courtyard.

    Hotel is very quiet apart from the train that seems to run every hour (only in day time) close by.

    Place is very secure as it well fenced from the street. He also has some limited car parking space.
