Last day here!

A travel blog entry by shbell

We left Guanacaste yesterday morning and drove back to San Jose for our last night. On the way, we stopped for a boat cruise along a crocodile infested river. The driver of the boat would ram the boat up on a sand bar and then step out barefoot with a handfull of chicken parts and try to entice a huge crocodile -16 feet long - to approach and eat …

What I didn't miss, didn't do, didn't know

A travel blog entry by crfunapalooza


Sitting here in San Jose on the last morning of our last day in Costa Rica it's hard to even think of how to wrap this blog up or what to say. Instead, I am going to start the list that the housemates started talking about a few days ago which might be added to in the next day or so. Before I do so, I want to say that this trip has been everything …

Ready for bed in Costa Rica

A travel blog entry by cartercostarica


We made it! We have just unpacked our suitcases and are in Central San Jose at the Aurola Holiday Inn. Initial impressions are that we won't be going out tonight as the streets seem to be busy but a bit risky. Everything has roll down shutter doors or large iron fences. It seems property crime is common. Our clothing makes us stick out like a sore …

White Water Rafting on the Reventazon River

A travel blog entry by a3dennert


A colleague of mine, Steven Wind, approached me one day and said "Dude, when are we going to go white water rafting in Costa Rica?"..... and that is how this trip evolved. After several weeks of switching potential dates we finally settled on flying down to San Jose on the evening of October 10th, arriving there around 9:30pm. Initially we had the …

Welcome to Costa Rica!

A travel blog entry by ttomei


So I woke up and left the Holiday Inn without breakfast. Even though I had free food coming to me, I had to get my white butt to the airport. In Line I met one girl going for ISV. She met one, and so that made 3 of us. We got to the gate and talked for a while. I saw another girl our age so I asked her, ¨ISV?¨ Yes! Come sit with us. We talked for a …

    High Rise Hotel in the middle of Downtown San Jose- Not as remote as our first hotel in the city of San Jose. Like any Holiday Inn clean and sufficiently good. Nothing to brag about. Good for those looking to explore the historical district of the city. Very close to a great Venezuelan restaurant serving a nice size AREPAS!
