Good cabin, but the bathroom was clogged

it is a simple cabin, but comfortable. There is a "kitchen", but no stove or oven and limited supplies. The toilet was malfunctioning and they could not fix it well, even though they tried.

Awesome hotsprings

Started off the day with a supermarket bought breakfast of bread and jam which was surprisingly filling so that was good. First activity of the day was a wildlife/eco place which was a national park of an afforestation project. Jeff had been there so many times that he offered to be our guide so we didn't have to pay for one and he is like the bill oddie of Costa Rica. His bird and just general nature knowledge is incredible. I finally saw ...

... which I did with my family. We set up this excursion through the hotel and it was a wonderful experience. We were taken by van with another family to the rafting area (we choose an intermediate level route). They fitted us with life preservers and stressed important safety. Then we were off down the rapids with guides in small canoe like things on either side. It was incredibly fun to say the least and they ...

... time that we needed to do this, so the next day we went with a taxi driver named Mario to a town called Los Chiles near the Nicaraguan border. We took a boat on a river called the Rio Frio to the town of San Carlos, Nicaragua. San Carlos was a lot like Granada but smaller and empty.The market did not have pig heads in it and it was smaller and more outside. It was really hot out and we had a lot of ice cream. There we stayed for about two ...

Costa Rica: You Can Forget About The Shoestring

... we made it to La Fortuna late at night, and with no dorms available had to shell out for a private room, but bartered them down, as the owner clearly wanted to go to bed and couldn’t actually be *****. He promised there would be hot water which was quite the luxury.

And herein lies quite a lot of the problems with Costa Rica. You are paying European prices, but the country doesn’t actually have the infrastructure to support it developing so fast. The roads are ****, ...

Costa Rica - not a great start

... beer.

The next day we did the Jeep-Boat-Jeep transfer to Monteverde. It's really shuttle-boat-shuttle. The prices for everything varies depending upon where you are from. If you are from the U.S., everything is more expensive. A German girl told us the first night we were there that one of the tour operators told her as much – “we charge the Americans more” - nice. So when we went to book our trip to ...
