    Once Jose dropped us off at the Holiday Inn Express in Alajuela, we went to the front desk of the hotel. Since we arrived a bit early, we had to wait in the lobby for a short time.

    Luckily, we did not have to wait long and soon enough we were in our room. The room is quite large and had a tv with English shows.. :) Bonus!

    Joanne and I then went to Denny's Restaurant to have something to eat. We both had plenty to eat and ...

    ... hoots from cars & "ola beautiful" made me laugh, you'd think they've never seen a blond girl before...... I found a little soda in the market & sat down to a typical Costa Rican meal called Gallo Carne - basically slow cooked beef (so juicy, tender & falling apart!) with these rice/potato like discs, I think they are meant to be like wraps but I ate them like pancakes lol! So cheap as well, very friendly & social place with locals dropping in, chatting for a ...

    ... so close to you. A raised table of mangoes - where they stopped to nibble - gave us the opportunity to see clearly their beautiful wings and take some photos. It was so relaxing - almost enchanting.

    Besides the Butterfly Garden, the museum has various halls dedicated to pre-Colombian history, indigenous gold, national history and temporary exhibits though the most interesting aspect for me was the history of the building. It ...
