      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 …

      ... scaffolding planks to make a walk-way alongside the rails. Problem (A) is that not all the gaps are covered, and problem (B) is that not all the planks are nailed, so caution is required in case the other end of the plank starts rising when you step on your end..!

      Add to this my vertigo and the weight of people coming and going... and it was all a bit fraught. However, I put my head down and refused to give way to people coming the other way (there was no system ...

      ... limited supplies in the kitchen and cook for ourselves, lunch is actually prepared for us, though it's very simple fare with little regard for the vegetarians among us and dinner is, no ****, leftover lunch. We are paying a fair amount to volunteer at this place and the website said volunteers are fed three meals a day. This paired with the impending boredom assault is starting to get our **** off muscles twitching. After scraping together ...

      ... they look awesome!!!  Judy, the owner has been really sick all week but she finally came out of her room today. She has some special guests here who are helping out till Sunday which is going to be really helpful for them as they only have one volunteer arriving today and 4 of us going.  All of Yvettes sloths are clearly missing her as they've been really needy with attention today, so cute! I almost teared up a little bit after last baby time as well, I can't believe ...

As Holly's face started to pucker from the sourness of the lime, MacKenzie was overwhelmed with a sweet flavor. Turns out, MacKenzie ate a miracle berry, which supposedly flips your taste buds for up to 8 hours. Things got even better when we got to start decorating ourselves with nature. First step was red-orange berry lipstick, then a tree rope bracelet, some ...
