... perfect for me and a nice steak for Wayne. Both satisfied we walk back to the hostel to pack. The train noises confirm I am glad not to sleep here tonight though sleeping on a bus is hard too. At 10.45 we order a taxi to the bus station and arrive at 11.10 where security is tight . Our paperwork is checked and again we have to confirm our onward plans and money is available for the border checks. At midnight the bus leave San Jose which is nestled in the valley surriunded by mountains and ...

Last day for La Intrepid Familia

Best lie-in of the whole trip (stayed in bed till 10am!!).

No points for originality, same brekkie at Rainforest Cafe, then wandered around getting chargers for my iPod and Kindle (grrrr the kindle one didn't work and had to get a memory stick instead boo). Uploaded all of my canon pics onto Google Drive (victory, thank you super fast wifi at La Fortuna hotel).

Then off we head to ...

... their surf mad dog, Lupe. We were also joined for most of our time there by another friend of theirs (a dead ringer for Matt Crockett), who taught us a new Costa Rican word: mae. It means dude or bro, and he was dropping it two to three times per sentence. We stayed with them for three nights.

Leslie and Jorge are trying to raise funds to establish a clinic on site and I would encourage you to check out their site if you happen to have a little extra Xmas cash. After a good nights sleep (no danger of sleeping in here), it's time for us to leave and jump into the many adventures Costa Rica offers- and having ticked off the dodo bird, Deb P is on the hunt for the very rare Costan Rican unicorn.

    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.
