    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 …

    ... us hostels. We pushed them aside however and traveled to our home for the next two nights. The taxi drive there was nuts! The driver was racing around the coastal roads overtaking and going off road. This meant we were very happy to see the signs for Walaba Hostel and get out that crazy jeep. The hostel was amazing. It is pretty much like tree house. It's all open to the outside and has five floors with the jungle all around. We quickly noticed the difference in weather from ...

    ... we shouldn't miss seeing a Caribbean town in Costa Rica. So we decided to head to Puerto Viejo, a town I visited nearly seven years ago and absolutely loved. We left Santa Teresa on February 21, and made the 13 hour journey by bus, ferry and two more buses to Puerto Viejo. Upon arriving, it didn't take long to realize that the locals love two things - Bob Marley and Ganja... you can smell it everywhere and you're often asked if ...

    ... do less work. Which is a shame because although we we really run off our feet last time I really loved the work and the amount of it. It does feel different too, I don't know if it's because Gigia isn't here anymore, or because I had been bigging up my return in my head so much. Maybe I just need to get back into the routine. The group that's here at the moment seems really nice. Which I'm really glad for after the second group last year. Matt, the first British volunteer ...

    The super mental storm!!!

    ... My baby has to be shaved :( Marcelo did also say that him and Judy don't want me to go, me neither my friend!

    In the afternoon it all went pretty normally, Chris seemed to be relaxing more after handling more calm sloths. She was meant to go in with Dusty but she told me that Claire hadn't spoken to her, I'm sure she had but never mind. Then it all kicked off. We were in the middle of making barros piles when the storm that had been threatening to roll in all day came ...
