      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 …

      Day 5 - A trip to Puerto Viejo

      ... for the concert but no one else, except Jess wanted to stay, and taxis are really expensive, so we ended up getting the last bus (7:30pm!) home. I managed to buy this amazing wooden sloth mug that Matt has. It's so cute. Funniest thing we saw that night though was a dj, playing outside a supermarket, so bizarre! On the way home, about 15 minutes in, I REALLY needed the bathroom and it doesn't help that the road is so bumpy. Jess also gets motion sickness really easily ...

      ... everyone on Raleigh (and also, maybe to return the keys that I had accidentally walked off – despite them being in my very safe place..!!) and happened to bump into Pedro (who helps run Raleigh fieldbase) and 2 new recruiters for the next expedition! After a nice meal, a couple of beers and sharing a whole bottle of rum (with some free shots of various alcoholic beverage thrown in) we managed to get some sleep before heading to the airport the next ...

      ... they are so good natured and calm. Two fingered are definitely more feisty.  After lunch the vet had seen Zoey and Pip. I came back to find Zoey had the side of her head shaved. I could see how bad her sore was now, it looks absolutely horrendous. I spoke to the vet and he's given me some medicine to give them twice a day. That's right I have to give sloths medicine. Thank god Zoey and Pip are pretty chilled as I have to rub cream into Zoey's ...

      Extreme hiking, extreme delicious soup

      Little did we know that today was a day that would live in extreme infamy. We were picked up (along with a very hungover Vicki, Valerie, Jerry, and Craig).

      The activity for the day was a pretty intense hike up the now-dormant Cerro Chato Volcano. This is a smaller mountain right next to the Arenal Volcano with a gorgeous crater lake on top. Translated, it means "flat hill", which is an indigenous name. When you look at the mountain from far away, you can see the "Happy Indian", or ...
