Rice and Beans

A travel blog entry by miller.mba2011


Is it just me or does the combination of rice and beans make complete sense. Healthy, fresh, easy to make, cheap and, if you add enough hot sauce, delicious. Mandy, sensing that I had taken my new found obsession in Punta Uva to the extreme decided to book dinner at Malbec, a small homestead run by a cute Argentinian couple, with nothing but steak …

Costa Rica Pura Vida

A travel blog entry by brandymole


Ahhhhh.... Costa Rica - where the weather is more unpredictable than in Cornwall! Hard to believe - but it's true!! Haven't yet uploaded photos but had a very long bus journey today to write this...... Due to some bizarre interference from the travel gods our flight from Mexico to Costa Rica was via a 9 hour stop over in Miami. We arrived in Miami …

La Fortuna, were Costa Rica ends

A travel blog entry by whereshallwego


We took the "taxi boat taxi" option to La Fortuna rather than busing it the whole way around Laguna Arenal

This saved us a few hrs travel and the steep climb up to the bus station!
The minivan collected us at 8am, and we took a 2.5hr drive on some of
the worst roads I've ever seen. Never mind tar, these roads had
nothing, it …

Volcano Time

A travel blog entry by jessi330

We got up, ate breakfast and planned on going to the bus station to catch the 9:30am bus to La Fortuna. Then we arrive by 1pm and have time to get a 2pm hike up the volcano.
Except we get to the bus station and there is no 9:30 departure! One that left at 8:30am and one that leaves at 11am. ****, so now we have to sit here and miss the …

    The people are nice (especially the bartender Roberto), the location is good (right around the corner from the bus station and a close walk to plenty of restaurants and tour companies), the amenities are great (a pool with a bar attached and a nice garden area).

    Overall, no complaints

    The courtyard was nicely landscaped and had picnic tables and hammocks. There was a pool and a bar at the back. Rooms had air conditioning and rocking chairs outside. I can't speak about the breakfast as we left too early to have it. We stayed in the dorms and the beds were comfortable.

    The staff here was very accommodating and nice. They toured us around all their available rooms and made a reservation for us with just a days notice and we got a private room with private bathroom for less money than we paid for a dorm room at another hostel in town. It is a little more quiet and laid back here, but we liked it better that way. The rooms were large, nice, comfortable, and clean. Would definitely recommend.
