Party TIme

A travel blog entry by juniorandange

We arrived late Friday night after a mission. We took a bus to the ferry then a bus to a main intersection where from there we caught another bus to a town close to Tamarindo where we were going to stay but accommodation was expensive so we ended up getting a taxi to Tamarindo for $30 between 4. Found a great hostel, The Black Sheep which was $12 a …

Michael Bolton et al

A travel blog entry by lingo83

We are treated to a selection of 80s music videos on the boat back to the mainland including something from the soundtrack of a Tom Cruise film where he is either kissing a blonde perm in slow motion or riding his motorbike through the streets at speed. At one point he is chasing a commercial passenger jet with his bike and shaking his fist at it: …

Surfin' in Tamarindo

A travel blog entry by shannond


... use it as a tactic to keep the tourists away from the better waves. We crossed and found some awesome waves that lasted longer than the ones the day before. Sarah was a pro by the end of it. I loved it even more that I booked another lesson this morning. It's amazing how exhausting the sport is and our bodies were absolutely exhausted and roasted on the backside by the end. After watching a gorgeous sunset in the evening, we did a turtle tour. The tour took us about 35 ...

The Chill Out

Air conditioning!

We had a stay here of 3 nights. Surfy crowd. It is not a quiet dorm, but if you like to stay out and enjoy watching TV on the big box, this is the place for you. Best of all was the airconditioning in the dorms. Very welcome. Kitchen is not the cleanest thing around and the bathrooms are pretty cramped. It is a cute place, decorated brightly and pretty chilled.

One of the best hostels I've ever stayed in. Such a friendly laid back place. Plenty of locals hang out there too, met so many great people, had a great time, super sad to leave...
