This was an excellent budget option. The room was basic but spotlessly clean and the staff couldn´t have been more friendly and helpful. In addition to that the bus for San Jose leaves from outside the door in the morning. A great budget choice if you need to stay in Los Chiles overnight.

After a couple of hours of terrible sleep, I realized that more warmth was needed so moved my chair to an area with less wind and got into my sleeping bag inner liner (we didnīt bring actual sleeping bags, just inner liners that are enough for times like this!). After this, I managed to ...
... the road got us to La Fortuna, our time spent largely enjoying an audiobook -- a car-trip tradition for us (and this is the first foreign rental that's had an aux jack!). Today it was Making Money, by Terry Pratchett.
As we approached La Fortuna, the Arenal volcano loomed into view. Really, we turned a corner and it seemed to jump out at us (or perhaps just me, having less opportunity to look around than Ben did). The top of the volcano was shrouded in mist, ...
As we traveled towards the border we went through a number of checkpoints. Although there is a program by which Nicaraguans can enter Costa Rica to work for a defined period of time, Rafael said that many attempted to sneak into the country without going through the expense of obtaining a passport or doing the bureaucratic paperwork necessary to come legally. He said that he had never had a tour bus stopped, but just in case he wanted us all to bring copies ...
