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.

... lots of people on the bus and all different kinds. Backpackers like us, surfers, locals - it was great for people watching. At one point I swear I heard a chicken and looked around but nothing. There was another lady who had a look on her face similar to what mine was I'm sure. Shock and confusion. I asked mike if he heard a chicken and he said no, but When we were almost at Dominical mike spotted a chicken poke it's head up out of this lady's shoulder bag! Her husband had ...

... 2 types of monkeys, one that was a family complete with cute little baby monkeys. we saw some raccoons which went right up to this family and started grabbing at their bags hanging from their stroller almost toppling it over (dont worry - there wasn't a kid in it) the wife freaked out which made the whole scene even better. and on the way out we saw some deer! they were pretty small compared to the ones at home, but it was amazing how they weren't at all bothered ...

... on). The English teacher did however share with me some good news, one of the grade 6 students I have been working with Emily has been offered a scholarship to study at an international school in San Jose. This is such exciting news, because opportunities like this are so rare for these kids. So it certainly is good news to receive on my last day at Paquita. We do end up having one English class with the grade 3's and the teacher wants us to sing ...

... the next one not going for another 7 months, and we had the obligatory unfamiliar-currency-scenario when Emma frantically tried to buy us tickets in time. "It's 10,000 dollars each..." she alarmingly called across the pavement as I pre-emptively loaded our bags on board..."it seems quite a lot...". After establishing 10,000 Costa Rican Colons is about 19 dollars, and they accept US currency everywhere here anyway, we just made it. Since our arrival 3 hours ...

We experienced extreme challenges in our activities, again coming out with different personal results. Me, I realized that I am still capable of things, and threw age out the window. I have also learned that the term used by a lot of people, (hitting the wall), as in not being able to finish, or ...
