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 ½ 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! …
I've been terrible about writing, but I'll try to
catch up. Today we left Puerto Veijo for Tortuguero. We took a bus to
Limon, which is a "dangerous" port city 20 minutes up the road from P.V.
Then we took a taxi to Moin, just north of Limon, and now we're waiting
on a boat to take us the three hour ride to …
We awoke early again to catch the 7:30 bus to Cahuita, where our snorkeling guide, a shirtless, sun-browned, slightly wizened older man named Joseph, met us at the bus terminal. His English was quite good; none of us had any trouble understanding him. He also struck me as a deeply happy person who loved his town and his work. I envied him. The sun …
Some of the girls decided to get up to watch the sun rise today (not me; I only woke up because they were banging around so much; then I quickly went back to sleep) but it was raining at that hour. By the time I got up it was merely overcast, and by the time Lydia got off the phone with Aventuras Bravas, it was partly sunny. Our surfing coach was a …
Monday will be Costa Rica's Independence Day, but the celebrations have been going on all this week. Today our class took a break at 9:30 to go watch the cultural performances in the park. Yesterday I taught the students in my study group the colloquial expression "blown away," in the sense of "very impressed." Today it came in handy. A few groups …
How has this hotel rated in the past?
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.
