Panamaniacs and the 12 hour turnaround

... to grab a bite and head to two other local bars with good food - both are closed. Turns out if there aren't enough people to warrant keeping the bar open, they shut down early. We head to a local chinese food place, I'm not typically a fan of chinese food - but it has never looked or tasted so good. 2.8 Colones for a heaping plate of food - not bad. We decide to call it a night. Thanks Julian for completely turning our day ...

Raleigh: Phase 2 - A tale of two parks

A travel blog entry by jennyroberts


... it. Our commute to the worksite was past the old prison buldings, across the island and along the long sandy unspoilt beach of Playa Coco. We lined the edges of the path with large rocks from near the path route; we then laid first sand, from the nearby sandy beach; and lastly pebbles from the pebble beach, nearer the other end of the trail. The work was strenuous, as we loaded up pebbles into hessian sacks or backpacks at the pebble beach and carried them up and down slopes ...

... She also showed me a presentation she has helped put together which discusses the increase in the market for ready to eat products (I.e sliced pineapple not whole) and how Fyffes can join this market. She showed me a document with all the quality issues that can occur and there were some I had never heard of but I'm sure I will hear of them a bit more when on the farms e.g. Corky shell, excess peduncle and gumosis!!! After lunch I popped into ...

Central Valley in Costa Rica!

... collective taxi, a 12-person van. We also received our Tracopa bus tickets from Palmar to San Jose ($11/pp, 5 hours). Yay! So easy and convenient. Gracias, Karolina.

While waiting for other passengers to fill up the van, we saw a dude going around with pipas (young coconut with a hole and straw). We got two of them and seeped on the sweet, delicious juice. Electrolytes recharged.

Food for thought.....

    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
