Flight Into Costa Rica

A travel blog entry by austinke


Monday, July 22, 2013:

We had a 7:20am flight out of Philly. I wanted to be 100% sure we got there on time, so we got up at 3am. It was midnight before we got in bed the night before - Emma claimed she didn't go to sleep at all. We flew from Philly to Houston, had a quick layover, and then on to San Jose, Costa Rica. The 8 hours of flight …

Arrival to Costa Rica

A travel blog entry by bgallagh

Arrived at 10 pm, we were picked up by the hotel shuttle and taken to the Adventure Inn. Room was big and comfortable. This is a decent place for a stopover before heading out to other destinations.

Tomorrow morning we are going to take a Nature Air flight to La Fortuna and explore the area around Mt. Arenal.

Vulcan on the volcan?

A travel blog entry by ithacabelle


Okay, I'll admit it, the Vulcan was to get your attention (There was a German man with a t-shirt of the "live long and prosper" sign on the bus with us to the volcano, so I wasn't making it up!). Volcan is volcano in Spanish, so we went to Volcan Poas today. The volcano is an active composite volcano (built up over time with layers), which has …

Easter Arrival

A travel blog entry by ithacabelle


A day of travel and settling in! We started in mall land outside the Pittsburgh airport, and ended up at a mall in Costa Rica, go figure. Travel was as tiring as usual, the only surprising item being that United Airlines now charges you $8 to watch TV or movies on each leg of your journey. We chose to sleep and read instead. {On the other hand, …

    Stayed here the first night in Costa Rica. Lovely little place, tucked away off the highway. Very clean rooms, and incredibly friendly staff. Pool and pool bar are nice, and restaurant boasts good food and good prices. Hotel layout is charming, with inner courtyard complete with fish pond, seating for pool/bar and restaurant. Highly recommend!

I spent an awsome time there and iīm sure ill be back there.

    Adventure Inn - Perfect For Me


    I stayed at the Adventure Inn(AI) twice during my recent vacation this past June.

    Great Place, Great Price, Great People!!


    My wife and I have been guests at the Adventure Inn on four different occasions in the last year and have greatly enjoyed each visit. The rooms are exceptionally clean, comfortable, and spacious. The hotel is beautifully maintained and is located in a very safe neighborhood. Without exception, the people employed by the Adventure Inn are exceedingly warm and helpful. Also, the food is excellent in the Moon Glow Lounge and Hans and the gang always greet us with a smile and a cold Imperial. The breakfast is just outstanding with Gallo Pinto, cheese, mangos, watermelon, banana bread, excellent Costa Rican coffee, passion fruit, and numerous other local treats. The evening menu has something for everyone such as fresh fish (our favorite), steaks, and Hans' special TexMex specialties. I would also mention, don't worry if you cannot speak Spanish as the employees at the front desk speak excellent English. In all, we love this place.

    Excellent Choice


    WOW I have read some of the reviews about the Adventure Inn in San Jose Costa Rica and I can only say one thing. These people from our elite society must have left their butlers at home and thought they are provided for you in these other countries. First of all we requested that someone from the Adventure Inn meet us at the airport upon our arrival from Ontario Canada. Low and behold there was someone at the airport to pick us up and take us to the hotel. We arrived at the Inn to english speaking attendants. They took us to our room but I carried our luggage even though we were asked if we needed help with them. The room was very clean, bigger than we imagined and a beautiful fresh smell. It was a pleasure not to smell stale smoke for a change. We had a great sleep in a very quiet room. We got up the next morning to a typical Costa Rican breakfast of fresh fruit still hot baking and freshly squeezed drinks. Certainly got us on the right path for the day. We meet Mr. Robinson after breakfast and asked him what he suggested to see this only day we were free to sight see. He suggested the volcano. We took off with his directions and we enjoyed the sights. We got home later that night and went for supper around 10 pm that night. We had a beautiful steak dinner with all the trimmings and paid less than what we paid for bacon and eggs for two in Niagara Falls. It was a very romantic setting in the restaurant and we were pampered all night until we headed for bed around mid night. Unfortunately we took off the next day for our destination and for the week we were there, there was no comparison at any other Inn that we stayed at. We have been to Costa Rica 4 times and there is only one place to stay in our eyes. THE ADVENTURE INN SAN JOSE COSTA RICA. Mr Robinson and staff, we are so looking to stay with you next year.

    What you must know before you Go!


    We booked into the Adventure Inn for two nights at the beginning and two nights at the end of our Costa Rican adventure. It seemed like a great idea, as it was midway between the airport and the city, in an upscale suburb, near a mall, with breakfast for only $69 (plus tax= 81).

    About that Photo!


    Be advised! The on-line photo showing the Adventure Inn is apparently quite old. The photo implies that this place stands alone, with nothing around it, with the hotel offering beautiful views of the valley and mountains. In reality, the hotel is surrounded by development, ringed in the rear by private homes and tall trees which visually block any expected views. This fact was a real disappointment, and contradicted one primary reason I booked this hotel.

    It'll be very nice when it's finished!


    We stayed here for 3 nights on our arrival in Costa Rica. The Adventure Inn is just down from the Melia Cariari by the gates to the Los Arcos residential area - the posh end of town! That said, it's also a stones throw from the Pan American Highway!! Not too intrusive from the hotel, but as there are no grounds you're rather trapped unless you go and sit at the duckponds down the street - very nice, we sat here and ate pastries from the supermarket further down towards the Melia Cariari!
