White water - white knuckles

A travel blog entry by jonbw on Feb 25, 2010


Left the villa at Manuel Antonio mid morning - the temperature had been a steady 35+ degrees for our entire stay which was fine for a while but I was beginning to crave a bit of shade. For example, breakfast was served on the beach each morning at around 8.00am, but the 800m walk from the door down the hill to the sea took about 10 minutes - and …

On Friday nightI marked my last night in La Paz by visiting the Carnaval which had taken over about 3km of the Malecon while I was away paddling. It was a great evening, tasting the street foods, watching the numerous bands who had set up stages every 200m or so along the sea front and generally having good time.

The next day I flew back …

Escuela Espanola (Spanish School!)

... but everything turned out well in the end. We were paired off so I was staying with one of the Quepos interns, and I definitely felt more comfortable with another English speaker in the house. The family were lovely, and the food they made for us was incredibly varied. We were expecting lots of gallo pinto (a local dish the primarily consists of rice and beans) and tortillas, but we were treated to fish and chips, chinese style chicken and even ...

Last Day, Heading Home

... crocodile can survive in both fresh and saltwater, so they were right at home in the brackish estuary of the Rio Tarcoles. We were told that they can live up to 100 years, that is, if they survive the young crocodile stage. They are cannibalistic and will eat their young, but once reaching adulthood have few natural enemies. Crocodiles are occasionally found in the salt water of the ocean, a piece of information that ...

Costs too much Rica

... of interest. The new national stadium looked ok but not as cool as Forsyth Barr. Booked a bus for Panama leaving at 11pm which was supposed to make the border crossing easier, apparently that was not to be the case.

We arrived at the border at 3am, the exit office didnt even open until 6.30am, super. After ******* aroung there for hours we then had to go through the entry to Panama which was the complete opposite to any other of CA crossings. They were ...

    The hospitality was wonderful here; after we'd been ripped off (sad to admit) by taxi drivers who stole our information from the real don carlos shuttle and claimed to be them (DC offers a shuttle from the airport to hotel for a reasonable price), the manager actually took that amount of money off of our bill since he felt bad for us and for some reason even seemed to give us a discount on the stay. I was not expecting such great customer service! The hotel room was clean and the breakfast (free) was just fine. I'd definitely stay here again.
