    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 …

    Well, after Oliver's mammoth history lesson yesterday he's taking a break. So I get to chat to everyone today. We are now in our second destination in the Bocas peninsula. We tried to split the trip to experience different flavours of the region. The first was out on the eastern end of the island of Bastimentos - and was focused on a nice beach, with gentle seas, and lots of water adventures. The house was set back from the ocean a bit, but was some distance from ...

    ... given a warm welcome by the young French owner. I borrowed one of their bicycles and explored the town. Not much there, but I discovered over the next couple of days that there were some exceptionally good restaurants.

    By now I was once again dodging the rain. I'd been told before I left Panama that as it was coming up to Full Moon the weather was going to be horrible for 5 or six days, and they wern't wrong. Massive downpours and for the first time I was concerned ...

    ... pet, so we don't pet them. After the "poop and pee report" as it's officially known, we will break for breakfast.

    8:00 AM. We enter the kitchen and working tightly around the three other volunteers, all of whom, it should be noted, are on their millionth trip to this place. We are tourists. The young couple is nice to us but German suicide girl will barely look at us. Does she think we mean the sloths harm? Suspect us of being poachers here hoping ...

    ... get there and watch her and Ursula told me she thought this woman was Chris the new volunteer as she'd been there for an hour and they weren't even open yet! I gave Gigia full permission to bite her and secretly hoped she would try and stuff her fingers in there. I actually love telling them off, it's too fun. Yesterday a group of tourists were right up against Gigia's cage so I sternly told them they needed to back up. No one goes near my baby! Later the toucher went on ...
