Apologies for a late final post! I was a bit of a zombie on the journey home and would have rambled more than normal. Left Costa Rica more than a week ago now, but wishing I was still there. It was tough coming home and facing the real world... Not that life is too rough at the moment, down in busselton finishing off my elective with a family …

I hitched a rather bumpy ride with two of my hostel mates to La Fortuna. I stayed in a dorm room with a bunch of other people...and I stopped being your average tourist.

Sitting around for breakfast the first morning, I met Paul and Sylvie from Canada and Charles from the Czech. We decided to explore La Fortuna waterfall and then head …

Early morning today as we were due to pick the car up from the hire shop at 9am. After a little trouble with a deposit because our card limits weren't quite enough to cover the charge, we were on the road to our next destination. Steve took the wheel to begin with for the 1st two hours as the trip was scheduled to be about 4 hours from Tamarindo to …

Awesome backpackers in la fortuna with a pool and a tours desk. No kitchen though... And really inconsiderate people in our dorm room that decided packing their bags for half an hour at 5am while everyone else was sleeping was a good idea...

The first night may have been a result of a mood - I was grumpy and tired. The music was loud, my roommates were young and excited and noisy. The room was hot and the base just kept pumping. The second and third night weren't as noisy which was awesome. Our window was broken which isn't great for security. The place has a great setup if you are willing to put up with the noise - pool, hammock tree, trampoline, volleyball court, nice bar.

Noisy tents, clean hostel

I stayed in a tent for $20/night. The tent is more like a regular room with a bed but with cloth walls. The bed was clean and nice, but unfortunately the bar across the street plays LOUD reaggeaton music late at night, so bring earplugs.

Freddie at the reception is awesome, he alone is worth one star.

Great for young college aged kids

We found this place to be a little more expensive than others and it reminded us of like a college spring break type place. We only stayed there one night and then switched hostels. The grounds are beautiful and the pool is nice and it is definitely a party type place.
