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.

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 …

... to watch Superman 3D which was cool though the film went on a bit. The restaurant next to our hotel, la Comida Divino was excellent though I just had soup as it was fairly late. If we return to San Jose to play golf we will definitely go back. In the morning we took a Nature Air flight prop-plane (19 seater) to Drake Bay in Corcovado National Park. The 35 minute flight was awesome as we were flying fairly low and could see the beautiful landscape. We could see into the ...

The Mercado de Artesamias was a short walk from the square above the museum on the Avenue

The only market I have ever seen with art products piled higher or tighter was the "Public Market" in Phenom Phen in Cambodia, but the Mercado was cleaner since it was 100% art and tourist products. The prices were reasonable and you could talk them down about ...

... I know that Ricardo is appreciative that I give a lot of my attention to his son and I think that is what made him welcome me with open arms into his family.

Ricardo found out that I love Chinese food (it wasn’t hard for him to find that out lol) so tomorrow he is ordering Chinese food for us all. I’ll report back later to share what Costa Rican Chinese food is like. Hmmm. Should I be ...
