Stepping out of the San Jose International Airport can only be described as complete chaos. I had read online that you should ignore all the men that will try to offer you taxi service and go find the booth where you can prepurchase your fare in a legal taxi to Alajuela (the nearest town). As soon as the doors opened we were swarmed by a horde of …

... that there are no storage lockers to store your bags. We then tried the giant mall next door, but again no storage lockers. The food court then became our home for a bit while I tried for find some Wifi, which I didnt.  We then decided to go buy our tickets for the 11PM bus to costa rica from Tica Bus, the local bus system that runs throughout Central America. We show up at the ticket desk and ask for dos tickets to San Jose. The attendant of course does not ...

I was born in Alajuela, a small town in a very small country. My childhood was a happy one, I lived in a farm with my family, lot's of bonfires, soccer games every Friday, family BBQ's, etc. Our little piece of heaven at a relatively short distance from the city.
"La finca" became my playground, I used to spend HOURS discovering new places, plants, smelling flowers, searching for shapes in clouds, nature became my teacher in many ways, I remember watching ants carrying big leaves, ...

... days off and then return to work during the entire busy season (January-May). Most are homesick and miss their own kids, so they doted on Vivian and Ivy. Our favorite server was proud to show us pictures of his 17 year old daughter who was heading to college next fall.

There are not many large mammals in this valley, although Vivian did spot a tayra (a weasel-like animal). We were hiking and she was ahead of us when she turned and excitedly exclaimed, ...

San Jose (Day 2)

... inspiring crater. Once at the top of the Volcano, you will feel like you are on the moon due to its "lunar" landscape.

The path to the crater was short, maybe 5 minutes. The crater was large but not as photographic as Poas. It was mainly just mountain terrain and lots and lots of clouds behind it. The Caribbean coast can sometimes be seen but today all we saw were clouds. We had an hour to explore. I walked along the edge with Mike ...

    A great little hotel in Alajuela

    This was a great little hotel to start and end our trip to Costa Rica in. It is a $5 cab ride from the airport which is so convenient for late night arrivals & early morning departures, is located near banks, food, the bus stop & the Central Park in Alajuela. It didn't look like much when we pulled up at night with all the buildings in the area being locked at night and the street deserted, but once you get used to the different feeling of Alajuela compared to other North American small cities, it's nothing to worry about. We fell asleep to the sounds of the street (cabs honk their horns as they drive through intersections and red lights) and woke up to the sound of birds chirping and roosters calling. In the morning the owner made us a delicious breakfast and gave us advice on how to get to Manuel Antonio from Alajuela on the bus and what to do around town while waiting for the bus. The staff were very friendly, helpful and knowledgable about Costa Rica. The room & beds were comfortable, we didn't need AC as the fan was more than enough to keep us cool, there was a tv (although we didn't watch it) and the shower had hot water. Such great value for the price. We will definitely stay here again
