    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.

    White water - white knuckles

    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 …

    ... a mixed blessing. It’s been great for downloading books. Vivian is used to getting 21 new books from the library every week, so being able to provide her new “packable” reading material, while not cheap, has been nice. Also, letting her watch a movie or shows while on really long car rides has been a luxury too. We made the mistake of allowing her to have the iPad “when Ivy naps”, which meant we went through a ...

    ... salsa but it was the first salsa we have had in Costa Rica. Then it was time to finish up our rafting trip. Most of the hard part was over, there were only a few hard class rapids left. As we were rafting we saw a big wall of clay and Jonder told us that this is the type of treatment that many people pay big bucks for. So he went and got us some and threw it at our legs! Next the river started narrowing and we saw a very old bridge. At this point Jonder told us ...
