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

... to our own hot springs day. I'm looking forward to the R & R as well as the camaraderie. I'll try to update tomorrow, but it will be unlikely. We are moving to our other lodging, Hotel Brillo Sol, and we'll be back VERY late tomorrow night. Their internet is a little less reliable as well. This weekend brings the health screenings in the precarios....always an adventure.
Enjoy your day and weekend! ...
... drips all over when you eat it. Sweating mid-day is not fun here though, you don't stop.
After a quick siesta, we headed to a local fiesta (festival). They have them all over here this time of year. After a bocas (snack) of ceviche, chalupa and cerveza, we headed to the fiesta. First up was the toros or bull fights and bull riding. It was pretty entertaining to watch. A thin cross dressing Costa Rican was a highlight and ...
... The rest of the day was spent relaxing poolside and enjoying tapas style dinner. In the morning, it was off in search of the "Pura Vida" everyone talks about.
Pura Vida is a common phrase in the Costa Rican culture, meaning literally "Pure Life". However, most Costa Ricans tend to describe it more as "full of life" or "this is living"
After a 2 1/2 hour drive through several small villages, we finally saw a ...
... gorgeous view onto the pacific ocean (plus a hammock for Del and also the hotel dog who loved Del called Coco). We stayed for 3 nights on a full board basis including canapes before dinner and the food was brilliant, we definitely ate too much. The staff were really great and Brad the owner ate with all the guests on one table each evening. On the first afternoon we took a kayak up the river mouth at high tide. We saw capuchin monkeys playing in the trees lining the river ...
... real threats for our family are balconies without railings or balusters, insect/vermin repellent under bathroom/kitchen sink, homemade wooden high chairs, which are beautiful but not always stable, hammocks, beds without railings, pools, fire ants, hot sand on the beach, and keeping the mini-pharmacy we are traveling with out of the reach of small fingers.
If anybody has any questions about traveling in Costa Rica (with or without ...
