    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 …

    ... am getting older and can't drink cheap **** anymore!! The second place we found was better though :)

    Although I liked it here there isn't a whole much to do! Plus I didn't think it was possible to find a place more chilled than Cahuita but the pace of life here is soooooo slow. It was nice for a day but I am glad to be heading to Panama tomorrow for a change of ...

    ... etc, but the culture is lacking compared to what weve seen so far...and the natural wonders were nothing to take ones breath away.

    Ok, ok, sorry if Ive brought a raincloud upon you all with the pitfalls of Costa Rica...we did see a couple of unique places, but we were eager to get away from the hoardes of Germans and 19 year old party kids from the States. We whizzed through the entire country in about 10 days.

    So I arrived earlier then usual to the sanctuary today, in fact it was still dark. The morpho butterfly I saw yesterday was still there and as soon as the sun came up it started flying around. They're so pretty! I was talking to Rolo about it and a bat literally hit me in the face again, seriously they are psychotic here. I did some of the project this morning and then had baby time. Today I finally a. Had a baby and b. Had Linus aka the most adorable baby ...

    ... of his neighbours. It was a pretty bad bite. Poor baby, he moves from the nursery to the big boy section and there's a storm and then he gets bitten :( Everyone kept blaming Franky and Priscilla and I was like hold up, they're really nice sloths and the gaps in the chain link are tiny. Personal I'm batting for Miss Vickie or Spencer on the other side as they have m***********s in the wire mesh and they can be pretty grumpy. Marcelo was on a bike ride ...
