Monteverde: Canopy paradise

A travel blog entry by mrlinoleum


Monteverde, onze feitelijk eerste en enige bestemming in Costa Rica was zeker en vast een meer dan bijzondere ervaring. De busrit hiernaartoe was al veelbelovend aangezien we konden genieten van de prachtige natuur die Costa Rica te bieden heeft. Het groene heuvelachtige landschap aangevuld met bananen en koffie plantages was werkelijk adembenemend …

Feliz Ano Nuevo!

A travel blog entry by slowayround


I've long wanted to vacation in Costa Rica, but never in my wildest dreams did I think I’d drive all the way here! Our first stop was the bank to get money, we felt rich withdrawing 150,000 Colones from our account, obviously they aren’t the same value as the dollar or the ATM would have laughed at us, it’s $300 US.

We …

All in all, we're enjoying some amazing coffee, beautiful scenery and taking in the atmosphere. …

Wonderful Cloudforest

A travel blog entry by dshaw.355

This hotel/hostel is definitely one of the best we've ever been in. The rooms are extremely tidy and spacious and the beds are pretty good as well. What makes this place stand out however is the very friendly staff. Miguel provided us with all the assitance we needed and was definitely the nicest hotel owner we've ever met.
