Travel Blogs from Alajuela
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 …
... to figure out how I can work for 11 months and stay here for 2-4 week next time around. It is possible and many people are doing it for much longer periods of time.
As I go home and live out the next year amidst all the chaos and distractions in America, there are a number of lessons I hope to incorporate into my daily life and learn to live Pura Vida at home.

... tongs’, I was able to touch the snake and feel its rough scales. I don’t ever plan on getting any closer than that.
My new snake buddies also gave me one of the best experiences of my life so far: I climbed a 75 foot tree using ropes and harness, and sat on a branch looking over the vast rainforest, as a tropical rain storm passed overhead. It was INCREDIBLE! I cannot even explain the magnificence of the view and the experience: ...

That was years ago, we've since made our home very comfortable. Most of our furniture was handmade by a very talented Tico. I brought photos , and he would replicate anything down to the last detail. Steve converted one room into a Pub - we call Steve's Pub. He built the bar, benches and stools ...

How has this b&b rated in the past?
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
