      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 …

      Bocas del Toro and some pretty perfect beaches

      Hells teeth but it was hot when we arrived. The main attraction of Bocas is the crystalline, Robinson Crusoe-esque waters of the area and the surrounding islands. So without delay, Tof and I hopped onto one of the water taxi's to the nearby island of Bastimentos. Apart from thick jungle and an incredible beach, Bastimentos lays claim to a species of red poison dart frog (after which the beach is named) that is found only ...

      ... some intravenous fluids, however it is extremely hard to get a sloth vein to do this. He eventually ended up cutting into her arm to try and get it in that way. To do this he opened the top layer of skin with a scalpel and then separated the skin from the fatty layer underneath. Slothful fact 2-sloths have hardly any fat under their skin and are actually very lean. Unfortunately as much as he tried Marcelo couldn't get it to work so I helped him stitch ...

The two us without a guide, then trekked down the Colca Canyon (deepest canyon in the world) and we partied in Cuzco before the 4 day Inca Trail to Machu Picchu which was unforgettable and physically challenging for us both in very different ways!!! We also managed ...

      ... him back in the nursery while his sore healed. This was exactly what I had said to Marcelo a couple of days ago as well. We just don't want to separate him from his room mates as they all adore each other so I thought we might be able to have little play dates with them so they can still spend time together. Claire thought that was a good idea so we'll see.  Our little helpers vanished in time for barros so, although we only had two boxes, it still tool ...
