    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.

    ... all work to exquisitely and passionately go through the unbelievably slow process of the harvest through to final product. It was so fascinating to see how much much love goes into the whole process of making a simple cup of coffee which we take so for granted every day. The most important part of the success of this plantation is the rich volcanic soil to grow coffee. Because the area is surrounded by volcanos it provides them with the absolute perfect environment for ...

    ... they have? (possibly similar the the EU and non-EU queues we have).
    After getting our exit stamp, we have to cross a bridge with loose boards on the floor. There were many gaps in the floor so extra attention was needed to not fall into the river below - It's a pretty cool way to cross a border. On the other side was the standard immigration, with again the locals pushing in.
    All of that done with, we boarded a bus to the ...

    ... her old pal Spencer. However her leg is looking not good, I mentioned to Marcelo that it might need bandaging because she keeps scratching at it and it now keeps bleeding everywhere. Machete sloth is officially mental as well because she is still climbing about with her hand despite the fact it is BONE what the hell! Seriously she just needs to relax. Crazy sloth. Today we got sections back! Alas I am not with my darling Piphany but I am in section 6 (or 4 as it's now called) with ...

    ... lot in front of a building with the name emblazoned upon it. Across the lot towers a plaster twenty foot scale replica of an ice age sloth. The execution is more miniature golf course than museum exhibit, but it is large and kids love large stuff. We are greeted by the founder's daughter, a middle aged woman with a hurried energy who is as corny as Kansas in August. She loads us into her van to cart us off to the volunteer quarters but we ...
