    They won't pick you up at the airport, but they do have hourly free shuttle back to the airport which we really appreciated. Nice kitichen, wifi. Close to supermarket, and walking distance to Bank of Costa RIca in mall to pay airport exit tax if want to pay ahead of time.

    ... killer, and much longer than the advertised 1 km, so we finished walking our bikes to the coffee plantation. We had a traditional Costa Rican lunch -- rice and beans, chicken, salad, fried plantains, and fruit -- then had a 1 hour tour of the Doka Estate in Alajuela. We finished the afternoon exploring the hotel grounds, lounging at the pools, and getting ready for the "fairwell ...

    ... told lots of stories, and laughed a ton. The ride back to alejuela included a rainbow, beautiful scenery, a stop for lunch in the steamy coast. When we hit humidity again, I was never so thankful for the weather of the past few weeks. Last dinner together as a team. Randy had already departed to spend a few extra days on the west coast. But the rest of us enjoyed a zombie-like dinner with friends that are like family. So now off to bed for our final legs home ...
