The way to Jaco La Palmera Hotel
We left Santa Elena this morning to head to the next destination Jaco. On are way there the road were bad and it was like driving to Hell and Back. I don't like Roll-a-Coaster and it seem there was more twist and turn and up hill and down hill. The road were very narrow and you had to stay alert at all …
ok, I'll be honest...I'm writing this early afternoon of the 9th since last night was quite...well, you'll read about it soon.

... there are only 2 utilities here; electric and water. We've had outages of both, multiple times on this visit, yet it was of little inconvenience.
Friday afternoon Theresa would be joining us for the second week of the stay. Her flight was due to arrive at 4:55 pm, so a 2:30 departure from Bejuco would seem very adequate for the trip to San Jose’. Costa Rica has been benefitting from the surge in tourism in recent years, to ...
