A travel blog entry by blizted

Started the first day off on our trip with a "light" day trip to Poas Volcano. Jumped on a bus at 9:15am from the Alajuela bus terminal for about 2400 colones (roundtrip).

    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.
