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.

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 …

... were very proud people. They showed me all of their paintings they had done and all of their crafts they made and insisted I take pictures of each and everyone of them. The crafts, not the people. And I had no idea how Sofi was related to them. And, the invited me to stay at their house whenever I return to Costa Rica. It gets better, they gave me a gift. It is actually cool but how am I supposed to pack it? It's a little cup thing for your desk that is ...

After a long day of travel, although not near as long as the Thailand program, we are here. We are spending the night outside of San Jose in a cute community called Alajuela. The hostel is great...kind of funky and fun... Pictures will be posted ...

... of it and fortunately its much larger mother was not present otherwise I doubt I would still have a head. We also saw vultures, jet-black squirrels and many 'Jesus Christ Lizards' - so called because, as they showed us, they can run across the surface of the water. I omitted to tell our guide I recalled reading that Jesus walked, not ran on the Sea of Galilee. Our guide was a lovely local called William, who had lived next to the swamps his whole life, ...

... first view of the ocean, and what quickly became our favorite hotel. Nestled right against the black sand beach, the hotel’s open-air dining room was already set for our lunch: a buffet of rice and pasta, marinated chicken and carne asada, salad greens with seasoned beefsteak tomatoes, watermelon and pineapple slices, and caramel coconut flan for dessert. We spent the afternoon combing the beach for shells and bits of coral, reveling in the power of the ...
