      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 …

      ... appearance and odd speed, but for their flexibility. The sloth has more cervical vertebrae than any other animal on Earth, including the giraffe who actually has the same number as us and everyone else. This means the sloth can turn its head almost 360 degrees. It has a very weird effect as it twists slowly, never stopping. Cuddle time is very important time to the other volunteers who live for it. These sloths have captured their hearts and it makes total ...

      Shockingly we finished nearly on time today. Daniella made a funny comment earlier joking about how people start a bit later and then moan that they finish late. I was like well yeah when all of you start back from breakfast at 9:00-9:15 instead of 8:30 every day we're gonna get behind. She apparently hadn't realised this as she ...

Meeting fellow travellers was however going to have to wait, a combination of low season and the fact the school had just been bought by a new owner meant no other students were at the school, just Jo and I. We did however have private lessons and spent the week with the new owner, Ingrid, Rob the Dutch carpenter and Endo the dog. Altogether a ...
