Houston to San Jose and first day

A travel blog entry by worldchallenge


... on a warm Friday afternoon. While the locals where busy walking on the streets and doing pre-weekend shopping, we basically explored the markets, banks and squares minding some of the organizational tasks to be done in preparation of the next few days. All and all a full day. The team hit the ground running so kudos to them. Muchos saludos!

For dinner tonight: Colombian restaurant next to our hostel. Sachien, Jake and Harry have ...

First night - "Life" in a meal :)

... the upwards trek began. The highlight of which was the spotting of some resplendent Quetzals, the original reason Monteverde attracted the attention of tourists.

They are also very embarrassed to speak English in front of me. All I have to do is speak Spanish in front of ...

    the staff were friendly, and very informative and helpful. the place itself was clean and quite big, with a great decor. our dormitory had 3 bunk beds and its own washroom with shower. people could see through the window of the shower since the shutter was broken. but that didn't bother us. we were only there for a quick sleep before jetting off at 5am. we loved that there was 24hr reception.
