    If you've never stayed in a hostel then this might be a disappointing experience for you. We needed and inexpensive place for 7 people to sleep and stow their things for 48 hours and Kaya's was that and more. The service was excellent in the accommodation area. The food/bar/restaurant left something to be desired. The food was overpriced for the quality, although beer was very cheap! The restaurant didn't open for breakfast either day we were there, apparently the cook just didn't show. We were able to find better food at better prices elsewhere in town. The hammocks on the terrace are wonderful! We checked out early on Sunday and the staff locked up our bags for us, then when we returned from our bike ride to wait for our transportation they let us take showers and clean up before we left. Definitely would stay here again.

    Annoyingly I woke up at 5am and couldn't sleep any longer. We left on a mini van at 7.30am, our of the chaos that is San Jose - and my final visit to this city for this trip! Heading towards the Caribbean coast, to the Southern end of Costa Rica. The roads heading out of the city were fairly quiet and we were soon winding our way up through the …

    ... process which takes over a month to achieve. The actual operations of the coffee plantation were far from fancy. I couldn't believe only 6 people worked there and produced a very patiently crafted award winning product which saw them export over 10,0000 kgs a year to country's all over the world. He showed us how they roast the beans light medium and dark roast all in machinery that the owner had built using recycled parts off old cars and other trash. The six carefully ...

    Day 8 - A day of firsts - the bad kind

    Today had been a pretty busy day. Jess left us today which is absolutely rubbish but we can't all stay forever I guess. Today was a lot of firsts too. For probably the first time EI heard an adult male sloth cry, literally like a baby. Vinnie has been going mental for a few days because we think Luna, in the next cage, is in heat. Today he got himself so worked up he started 'mahing' aka sloth crying. Clearly the poor boy needs a lady, we just can't give him ...

    ... He showed us the basement where he had a load of surf boards and 2 cars , a dune buggy and he said that when his brother slit the tires to the car he called his 4 mates and duck taped his brother (who is now in rehab by the way!!!) oh he also had a room full of beds so he can take others on board. He showed us a wooden door which he uses to throw knives at... Most of his stories involved him building things and then stabbing them! Yes, we did continue ...

    My poor baby Gigia

    A travel blog entry by blondesontour on Aug 25, 2012

    Ah poor Marcelo, I actually spend half my time here stalking him to check on my sloths. Today there were a lot. I even had to make a list to remind me what I needed done! Most of them are apparently ok but I'm worried about a few of them still so will definitely keep an eye on them.  He decided to give Gigia some vitamin shots and fluids today which he had to be sedated for. I got to carry him in and help, he's so tiny now and he looked so ill on the ...
