          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.

When we got back, Pastor Payton, Julie, and Megan we're pulling in to get the clothes we had for the thrift store. We loaded up and loaded the buses. We stopped in Quepos for delicious food. We had one of the same bus drivers as last time whom Fredy thinks it would be a ...

          ... We checked in at the curb and I sailed through TSA with my TSA Clear status! Then on to the gate to board for Dallas! Approaching Dallas we encountered a major rain storm and had to circle the airport for about an hour. Of course we missed our scheduled departure time to Costa Rica. However, that plane was delayed too, so it all worked out. What was once a ...

          ... wifi, a shower, and a bed to sleep on. That was all I needed. And like I said, the location was totally worth it (and breakfast was included!). So after checking in, we put our things upstairs and went on the search to find some breakfast. There was an awesome Colombian Panaderia about two blocks away from the hotel. We ate some delicious empanadas which was the perfect fuel after a long bus ride. Now it was time to explore the city! Since everything was ...

          Today is our last day of sightseeing. We will get the day started by visiting Manuel Antonio National Park which was created in 1972. The park is located approximately 115 miles Southwest of San Jose, and sits on the edge of the Pacific Ocean. It is the countries smallest National Park on 1683 acres, but it's stunning beauty and diversity of wildlife is unequalled. The park contains a combination of rain forest, beaches, and coral reefs. The wildlife in ...

It was in Cusco where Pat came out to meet us, and from there we spent 3 weeks visiting the major cities, sipping pisco sours and embracing the local culture. I will never forge Pat's near death experience when we decided she should come sandboarding with us in the Huacachina desert- her ...
