Day 1 - I arrived at Liberia International Airport on Sunday, February 2 around 12:30 PM. Here I scheduled private transportation which was only $49 for a private transfer from Liberia Airport to Coco Beach which was about a 30 minute drive. The name of the company was "Costa Rica North West". Very reliable service and our driver was amazing. He …
... t leave the desk at all as otherwise there wouldn't be anyone in the shop. So come lunch I was starving! The Rich Coast girls along with Taylor, Tabby and Marilyn went out for ladies night tonight. This basically involves getting free drinks till 11 so we usually end up getting about 7 rounds in the space of 30 minutes. There was a lot of tequila as always! I therefore decided it would be a good idea to teach people some pole dancing moves, you know as you do. ...
... to let him go, because you should always put your safety first so that you can help if there is a problem. At which point he grabbed on to my wrist with a death grip and hauled me to the surface. We got up and I had a huge, but polite, go at him. I basically told him that we came up way to fast and I was trying to slow him, he had to make sure that he had no air in his BCD, do not kick, breathe out and flare out if you're going to fast and especially never, ever grab on ...
... t going to be my day today, the ants, followed by my breakfast being covered in ants and then it just got worse. We went to the dive shop and we helped load all of the gear (tanks, bags etc) onto the truck. We then drove to the beach and put all of these onto the boat. I tried to carry two oxygen tanks and then couldn't lift them onto the boat, those things are heavy. I knocked one into the water and generally made a complete mess of it. Then after discussing with Lee, ...
... br> It was cloudy and cold up there at some 2500m ASL and we thought we had wasted
our money going in as the chances of getting to see the volcano’s huge crater
(the 2nd widest in the world apparently at 1.6 kms across) were
minimal with the low cloud scudding across the trees lining the approach path.
But surprise, surprise a few intermittent gaps appeared in the grey stuff
allowing us very brief glimpses of the big hole in the mountain far ...
How has this hotel rated in the past?
Honestly, the great thing about this hotel was that it was close to the beach which is exactly what I wanted. The beach was less than a 5 minute walk away. However, the area is extremely expensive and meant for tourists obviously. It took me a while to find some of that authentic Costa Rican good. A girl just wanted the typical rice and beans dinner which was hard to find in this area. Next time I think I'll invest in staying somewhere less expensive if it means being away from the tourist site. Not to mention there isn't much to do in downtown other then eating. Wish I could've been closer to other attractions.
