... market to buy some breakfast and lunch supplies others are working on their areas and generally taking it easy. Looking forward to exploring the city later in the day. Mean breakfast boys, cereal, bread fresh mango, honey and bananas. Nice.

... the restaurant was closed. I'd had it! Back to comfortable hotel please!! but Rich wanted to persevere so we continued on to restaurant # 2 – rather wet, B troubled by surroundings and frickin’ armed guards BUT! One just has to take risks in life sometimes – the next restaurant was a true local’s gem! The Bodeguita del Medio – home (well actually the original B del M in Havana) ...

All the way to San Jose plus Monteverde

... which have only allowed a few of the grand old colonial buildings to remain. Therefore the only real reason to spend much time, as a tourist, in San Jose, is as a stepping stone to the towering volcanos north west of the city. The Volcano Poas is probably the most visited as it has been developed to be easily accessible by all ages and abilities. Beware though, the organised tours that visit the volcano, as although the guides are informative ...

No tan rapido por favor.

... We assumed this was soda, bit it was actually a fruit juice that was freshly made and was absolutely delicious. I ordered some arroz con pollo which is chicken rice, cilantro, and a few veggies. Holy goodness. We ended the meal with two more frescos and some delicious desert. I don't know what it was, but Costa Rica is winning so far in the food category. We paid something like...$20.00 each and treated ourselves to a feast for our first night. Pura Vita!

    Paula, who runs the place, sure is very amiable, knowledgeable and helpful. The dorms are clean but only mixed... Only 2 bathrooms in the whole place which is quite inconvenient when it is at full capacity. Breakfast slot is only 1h, but it is nice and varied. Check out is pretty early (10am) Wifi is good throughout.
