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 …

... hot in Costa Rica... endless blue skies and nothing more than swimwear required day or night. Food: self catered breakfasts and lunches at Darryl's and here, lovely restaurant fish, meat and pasta in LA, mix of fresh restaurant fish and self catered tuna pasta here. We have to be back in San Jose next Saturday 5th April to pick up our STA tour, so until then I am sure we will find something to keep us busy, or not, and I hope we can continue to savour everything as much as it ...

... and swam for a while but it was so hot out and nit much shade so we headed to the next beach, Playa Espadilla Nur. There were large rock formations on the beach and I hid in a little cave to get out of the sun. This was now the public beach so Jeff and I enjoyed a few beers on the beach before packing it in to go to the little shops/street venders. We did a little shopping then headed back up the hill to get apps at Hotel la Mariposa. This ...

... to Quepos near Manuel Antonio. Our San Jose host Julian explained that there was a national park there which was worth checking out for the wildlife. We did not know how much each bus cost or the schedule, or exactly where the stops were. Welcome to taking the local bus in Costa Rica. The quick run down was this:(FYI 500 Colones = $1.00 US dollar) All prices are for 2 people.

  • Start - 5:30 AM the bus came by Steves house to pick us up. Bus quality - ...

Hiking Chirripo Part II

... flashlights, water and protein bars, and took off into darkness.

It seemed like we were alone for a while, but soon other flashlights appeared and passed. We could also see some flashlights way ahead.

The 5km to the peak was an incredible adventure, a real challenge. Imagine, you HAVE to walk in darkness the entire time because you are trying to get to the peak before the sun rise. There were rocks of all ...

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.
