Travel Blogs from San Jose
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 …
... 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 ...
... 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 ...

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.
