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.

The following morning we woke up for an early breakfast, went to buy some last minute gifts, and headed out to the airport. About 4 blocks from our hotel was a direct shuttle bus that you can take from downtown San Jose to the airport for only $1! So worth it!!!!!!! Pura Vida Costa Rica! Until next time!
... to a 5* version! We spent a few miserable rainy days on Lake Atitlan, but put off by the weather, we headed on to visit the turquoise waters of Semuc Champey, one of the Central American highlights for me. From there we headed further north to Tikal to visit the incredible Mayan ruins, and were fortunate enough to visit at a time when the park was deserted, omitting the need to jostle with the tourists for a decent photo!
... ADD because the 2 guides were mixing English and Spanish. I can see why people on Tripadvisor said $22 seemed like too pricey of a tag. The tour left us in the big gift shop, which contained every Cafe Britt souvenir you could want plus a ton of general souvenirs. We spent a while there tasting different chocolate-covered goodies and picking out gifts.
We had opted for the coffee tour + lunch option, ...
