It's a jungle out there...

A travel blog entry by colin


... bus to David, it was plain sailing, so to speak. From David it was straight onto a bus to Paso Canoas, the town which straddles the border with Costa Rica. I got my stamp out of Panama then walked 100 metres or so to the Costa Rican Immigration office. I never knew in between which country I was in.

Immigration was easy, no queue, but I did have to fill in some useless bit of paperwork and buy a bus ticket ...

Hello Costa Rica, goodbye Costa Rica

A travel blog entry by mcdermk7

This is a top pick!

... t hindsight a wonderful thing!! So we had heard random things about the bus to the boarder but nothing concrete so asked in our hostel and was told about busses. One at 6am and one at 10am.

I felt it was appropriate that B4 should end his Costa Rican adventure here and Johnny explained to the Head Teacher ...

Monkey face

A travel blog entry by jcgallagher


... monkey face or dirty face. Take your pick! Using Puffy's recommendation of tequila to stop the Mosquitos biting me ended up instead with me confirming the saying "1 tequila, 2 tequila, 3 tequila, floor". And what do you know, I still got bitten. Off to Monteverde tomorrow. By horseback. Yes horseback. I will be sitting on a horse for 5 hours. The fact that i fell off a bike yesterday does not bode well for my horse riding expertise. Wish me luck and adios ...
