Pura Vida on the Carribbean!

A travel blog entry by dharmawalk on Oct 14, 2013

Lunch was served early at home-base on Friday to accommodate all the volunteers leaving for the weekend. Our charter van arrived at 1:30 and we piled in for what was supposed to be a 4 hour trip. The weekend of Columbus day is a very busy holiday in Central America however and half the population of Costa Rica was on their way to the Carribbean! …

Emily and Freddy's

A travel blog entry by weebles


... last seen making it's way into the shower. The vipers made us laugh a lot as ben's given me a new name if I'm grumpy: pit viper; if I'm really grumpy I have to serve time in the 'snake pit' which is simply ben's arm pit. I've only had to endure this punishment once I'm glad to say. All in all we're muddling along quite well together considering we haven't spent more than an hour apart in seven months. We spend a lot of time chilling at Emily and Freddy's house which ...

1st day back at the Sanctuary

A travel blog entry by blondesontour


... s literally the cutest baby ever. Then we washed vegetables, theirs no peeling anymore, just scrubbing. It's SO much easier than what we had to do before! Then we were done by like 10:30 and have a break till 1pm. This is very different. Usually I would have maybe a half an hour lunch, if I was lucky, when I was there before. So it's much more relaxed. After lunch I literally raced back determined to clean section two as I haven't really seen the rest of my residents who are ...

Major agreements, holding Pip & Ubu's wee show

A travel blog entry by blondesontour

... got to carry her when she was asleep. This was nice as I probably wouldn't be able to do this otherwise. I told Marcelo to shave the smallest amount possible and he did a very good job. The sore actually looks pretty good, apparently because I caught it so soon. Boom! Told you I was awesome at this ****! Although it was definitely part luck too. I then got to carry her back to the enclosure literally just wanting to steal her away or be able to hug her all the time. She's too cute. ...

Late update!

A travel blog entry by georgiemoule


... took advantage of the national holiday, managed to get Friday off work too and headed to Puerto Viejo on the Caribbean coast for a 4 day weekend. It's the most chilled place I've ever been, and I'm fairly sure 90%25 of the people here are stoned, 90%25 of the time. It's famous for surfing, bars and backpackers. Since we arrived here, I think our pace of life has slowed down by about 50%25, we seem to spend long periods of time sitting looking at the beach and nodding along ...

    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.
