Hostal Ciudad Blanca
TravelPod Member ReviewsHostal Ciudad Blanca Liberia
We were referred to the hotel by another satisfied client and checked the 'old' part of the hotel on the south side of the road above the restaurant/bar. 'Newer' rooms in a building on the north side of the road are, well, newer and nicer with great air-con, hot-water showers, cable TV and good beds. We paid a bit more for the room in the newer section and felt it was well worth it. It was quite and we slept undisturbed.
We had to go over to the restaurant to reach the free WiFi. There we had a tasty plate of nachos from the restaurant.
Hostal Ciudad Blanca is a great budget option in town that gave us the best bang for our buck!

However, right now it is just a big construction zone with two-lanes of traffic switching from one side to the other depending on which side of the roadway was being worked on at the moment. The posted speed limit was 30 kph the entire way, but after awhile Phyllis realized that no one ...
... I experienced this in Kenya too but the thunder is sooooo loud here. Not like in England, a lot more bassy if that makes sense and one last night shook our tin roof, which is not the best material for when it rains and your trying to get to sleep. Had pizza for tea which was a blast from the past (if you know my food history). Sam said she's going to ask if we can do a waterfall walk tour next week so that should be good. The journey awaits ...

stopped in various fields to count cattle or horses, most of which would crowd
around us when Oscar whistled. We snagged oranges, sweet lemons, and mandarins
off of trees as we passed by for a mid-morning snack.

some plantains, not as good as when Omar makes them but not too bad. While cooking
I not only had to shoo away the dogs and cats from my meal but one particularly
broody hen kept attempting to sit on the bowl of eggs on the counter!

calf. Ernesto said his neighbor had not wanted to pay for treatment and just
gave the young bull to him. The joints of one of his forelegs were swollen and
he had not stood willingly for almost a week. He was still eating well and
holding his head up so Ernesto thought he had a good chance. We hauled the calf
up and Ernesto left me to keep him standing (which involved holding on to his
