One night in the big city...

A travel blog entry by andresturner

This being my 3rd trip to Costa Rica, and having flown in and out of San Jose each time, we figured we'd stay for a night and see what it was all about. Also, we were coming from Quepos/Manuel Antonio, and heading to Puerto Viejo, which in 1 day is exhausting...

I'm sure there's plenty to do here, but it wasn't in our best interest to find …

First day in San Jose

A travel blog entry by kkotyk


We made it! After driving to San Antonio, a grueling 6 hour layover in Mexico City (and by grueling I mean sitting at a food court with a bottle of Absolut and mango nectar purchased at the Duty Free shop to help pass the time) and then a peaceful flight into San Jose, we arrived at the Galileo Hostel just after midnight, nearly 14 hours after our …

Costa (Lot) Rica

A travel blog entry by kathystravels

    We read several reviews for San Jose hostels before coming, and this place seemed cool. It was fine for one night, but a very funky place. It wasn't that clean, and the bunk beds were tiny. Also, the lockers (to safeguard your stuff), all looked as if someone had pried them open with a crow bar one time or another. The people there were nice, but all in all I'd say the place was kind of a wreck.
