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.

... a
bird, it almost sound like a croaking frog, with a little bit of a whistle. I
don’t know if the beak is just for show or if it serves some purpose for
amplifying their calls…they are audible for a great distance. When my coffee
was gone I returned to the cabin to make breakfast, Ernesto had brought down
eggs, bread and a tamale for me. I
warmed the tamale and fried an egg to put on top. After breakfast I began
gathering, and in ...

... br> come of this research, beyond my being able to write my paper and
graduate, what could I really do for these women in a community so far and
different from my own. I am just an outsider, the other, watching them as if they are wild birds, and preparing an academic paper none of them would ever be able to read...I discussed this with Augusto on the drive home. Already
in my research a trend has emerged. These women are very interested ...

... around 6am next morning. As soon as the ferry began moving, we knew we were in for a cold night. I changed into my warmest clothing and had my travel towel over me as a blanket. 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 ...

... by leaves. We got some better opportunities on the walk back, though they seemed more agitated by our presence.

We saw a lot of butterflies and a squirrel on the walk before emerging onto an old lava flow (which looked a bit like a dry river bed, as opposed to the cooled flow I was expecting after the volcano hike in the Galapagos). Excited to finally be getting to the lava, we opted for the Lava Shortcut sign over the Hike arrow. The frustrating thing was ...

... is where it starts to get good. From La Fortuna we get a bus to the border, a place called Los Chiles. From Los Chiles we take a boat up the river (Rio San Juan I think), which takes us into Nicaragua. This is supposed to be the most serene and pleasant way to enter the country.
