    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.

    Set in the cloud forest above the village of San Gerardo de Rivas is the lovely Cloudbridge Reserve

    The people of both communities were ...

    ... at the clinic there. Hopefully the shipment of stuff actually gets to them there...we expect the ship to arrive from Miami the week, then it's a matter of getting the load across the country. It got stuck in Miami because someone else's stuff didn't pass Customs' regulations, so the entire container was held up there...gotta love people trying to ship illegal things!

    We went to the mall/bus depot to grab a Metro bus pass and Jake some shower sandals. Our plan was to take the Metro bus to Albrook, purchase our 11pm San Jose tickets, find lockers for our bags and maybe head to the free jazz festival past Mira Flores...or maybe hit up a movie in the mall. Second snag - no lockers. Okay, maybe they will let us in a movie with our bags. Let's get our tickets first. Third snag - ...
