Skittles at the Summit

Yesterday rivalled the amazing race. We started the day at the top of the highest mountain in Costa Rica (second most prominent in Central America) and ended the day in San Jose. The day involved the toughest hike I have ever done, Jake paying $16 for fries and cokes and being literally seconds away from missing our bus to San Jose, and me almost …

... we went to swim lessons, but I rolled with it and it was fine. And it was raining. Isn't it quite dangerous to swim while it's raining? Oh well, I'm a rebel. So we had to do freestyle (4 laps,3 times), doggy paddle (4 laps, 3 times), and a kick board (4 laps,3times). But wait! There is more. We ran (yes, stand up and running in the pool) for 6 laps. After that, lay on your stomach and float for 4 laps. (THAT IS NOT POSSIBLE) and after that, swim under ...

Today we paid to get a guided tour around the national park with the promise that we would see alot of wildlife that you would never see without a guide! Our guide was brilliant and we could not get over how he managed to see things as small as grasshoppers in the distance! Our guide was born and bread within the park until they were all moved out so it became a national park! He brought along a telescope lens on a stand which meant that we could see things up close and ...

... ate at a sushi restaurant on a pedestrianised shopping street in Santa Monica. At 8pm music started playing in the street and immediately around 50 couples of all races, ages and class congregated to waltz arm in arm around the cobbles watched and encouraged by dozens of enchanted passers by. Apparently it happens every Sunday night there, but it was the kind of touching and completely genuine snapshot of American life that I would never have expected to see, ...

... I, head off to bed a midst a bevy of storytelling and laughter. The group seems to really enjoy the company of the guides and their camaraderie keeps them up late. Around midnight the only sounds to be heard are those coming from the forest floor and canopy. I wonder what lurks out there as I nod off to sleep. Dreams of monkeys, peccaries and jaguars fill my brain and I’m sure I slumber with a huge smile on my face, knowing that our adventure is not even half way over.

Amazing place. Great ambience, quaint rooms and great dorm room. Sauna tub for after your tough hike on Chirripo. Friendly owners and staff - willing to go above and beyond to help you. Very concerned about the environment - great focus on reducing, reusing and recycling. Nice gazebo with hammocks - a great place to spend a few hours reading, listening to the wind, birds and chimes. Beautifully constructed out of stone, into the side of a hill - artsy touches, windows made of coloured glass bottles, murals on the wall, broken cups, plates, porcelain used as tiling in bathrooms. Early quiet time - ideal for hikers who need to get up early.
