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 …

Manuel Antonio national park

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 ...

Riches, rags, repacking, rain forests, raccoons

... which was interesting but neither of us had seen any other film or TV show the guide got the rest of our group so excited about, so we learned to feign awe and amazement to the extent I'm surprised we weren't talent spotted by Mr Spielberg. The rest of our time in the area was spent visiting the beaches of Malibu, Huntingdon, Laguna and Newport which were all pleasant enough: broad sandy expanses overlooked by vast houses, luxury hotels and manicured golf courses. ...

... Mop has an eye like a hawk and spotted animals that i NEVER would have been able to see. I'm pretty sure he was the best tour guide there because he was pointing out animals to all of the other guides too! We saw sloths, howler monkeys, white faced monkeys, raccoons, several different types of iguanas and lizards, red eyed green tree frogs, white trees frogs, brown/yellow tree frogs, the scariest giant spiders, fruit eating bats and mosquito ...

... years ago, and still continue to do so! The weather was so perfect-- sunny with some breeze, and every corner of the open-air work area seemed to have crafts.

We came across two elderly gentlemen who were in a discussion. One of them was apparently Eloy Alfaro's son Fernando! He showed us his beautiful wooden carvings. They said the place has 4 people working with wood and 5 painters. I hope they continue the ...

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.
