Arrival in San Jose and visiting Manuel Antonio

San Jose is my first destination on the trip which will take me 9 months through Costa Rica and South America. With zero Spanish and large expectations I arrived there via Frankfurt and Panama. San Jose is a city to be skipped completely as there is nothing to see except a pedestrian zone with numerous fast food opportunities and a somehow unsafe …

Well that was a quick visit

A travel blog entry by kasnsqueak


... a decent chicken curry for me and burger for Wayne. Exhausted after the long day we hit the bed. Little did we know until overnight we were in the end corner of the property right next to theain tracks which cross a main road hence the need for the trains to blare their horns constantly as they approach and cross the road. By morning and sunrise the usual road sounds of buses and trucks and bikes began and added to the train noises. I cannot begin to describe the way I felt.Thursday ...

San Jose, Costa Rica

A travel blog entry by scottandcorrina


... we found a cafe to escape the hustle and bustle of the Main Street and escape the heat. That night was our final group dinner and unfortunately Scott became unwell so it was early goodbyes to hope an early night would help as our transport the next morning to go to Bocas del Toro was leaving at ...

Adios Costa Rica

A travel blog entry by tdv95


... the countries lack of vigilance when it comes to two of it's more precious resources- standing by while corrupt profiteers seek to feed the insatiable Chinese demand for shark fins and turtle eggs will clobber their Eco reputation very quickly if they are not careful. You can always do more but I would give ourselves a B grade for this objective and we'd highly recommend CR for an embrace of nature.

Who's The Dodo??

A travel blog entry by tdv95


... Sanctuary that is on the Caribbean side of the country but, despite being featured on Animal Planet, it has decidedly mixed reviews these days. It seems to be a situation of people with good intentions dramatically losing their way and devolving to a roadside zoo- the deal breaker for us was a news item detailing an attempt by staff to help capture and smuggle rare pygmy sloths out of neighbouring Panama. We scrambled to find an alternative- partly for the rare ...

    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.
