    We were surprised at the beauty of the gardens that surrounded the hotel. I got lost walking through the 10 acres with beautiful trees and flowers and so many different kinds of plants. There were nice sitting areas and fountains and I wish we had been able to stay longer to enjoy it and relax in the gardens. The room was very clean and modern and the staff were so pleasant and helpful. There was a concierge desk which really came in handy for us the last 2 days to plan additional tours.

    ... world and seem to go all out to preserve nature and correct past incidents of logging etc. Spotty rain showers during the walk but it didn't make it through the canopy. Norma and Joyce had fun on the hanging bridges. ( see pictures). Had lunch after the walk and boarded the bus to go to the waterfall. Everyone is tired tonight so it'll be an early one. ...

    ... borrow some tall black rubber boots to tromp around in. Mine were too short, too wide, and bound uncomfortably at the ankle, but hell, I was game, having heard the snake-and-ant descriptions. Off we went, first across a suspension bridge over the Sarapiqui River, but it was much scarier in the dark and high over the river. The bridge bounced and swayed. I was very uncomfortable, being a hater of bridges and heights. ...

    ... spot, but we weren't quite sure how to go the reverse direction or where the stop for it would be. Well now that you mention it we didn't know which bus it was either. After standing there for a few minutes not really sure what to do, we headed down another road to see if there was a stop there. Still no stop in sight but a few cabs driving by. Okay not what we planned but at least we could get back. If we get a cab, where are we headed? This is when we determine how unprepared we ...

    ... for navigating the city-from bus to taxi to station-are now useless!! Yay! The biggest insight I take from leaving this home is the importance of family. Yami's house is located on a small hill/cul de sac upon which her entire family lives. To the right is her cousin, next to that is her sister, her brother and more cousins live a few houses down. Essentially it is a neighbourhood of family with aunts preparing meals for us, stopping in to say hello and eat a ...

    ... immediately giving up on the bus idea, as there is not a sign or bus insight, taxi it is. So finally to 110th man says 'taxi miss' and I accept. Red flags however raise quickly as he starts walking away from the taxi rank and off to the car park. I ask him 'you are a taxi' he says yes and that he's cheaper than the ones right outside the airport. We arrive at this car, which is not a taxi, but just an ordinary car. I ask if you are a taxi, why isn't ...
