    The staff at Luz de Mono are super friendly and accomodating. We stayed in a casita and awoke to the monkeys at 5:15am. This is our first visit and we'll definitely return.

    Pool turned my daughter's hair green

    After a long journey to Montezuma via the ferry, my small children were excited to take a swim in the pool. The pool was very warm and cloudy-had I not promised the kids, we would have skipped the swim. After a quick 20-minute swim, my daughter's blonde hair turned completely green. Fortunately, I had special shampoo that minimized the damage, but others should beware (you should also be aware that you will only get two small bars of soap and no shampoo). We were promised towels for the pool, but we never got them. The room was dingy. Both bedside lights were broken (one I unplugged because it scared me). The shower was particularly awful, very small, old, and claustrophobic. We had reserved one night with the anticipation of staying three nights, but we checked out immediately after breakfast (which was surprisingly good). Luz de Mono has an amazing location in terms of access to the beach and town, but recognize that that is all you are paying for . . .

    ... day hiking to 2 nearby waterfalls with crazy Harry jumping off one of them! It was such a beautiful place. We were lucky enough to watch the local guys dive off the falls too! It was so high, they were so brave that's for sure! As for most beach towns we spent the rest of the days wandering the many beaches, relaxing, reading and eating ice-cream ��. We even found our own natural pool among the rocks all to ourselves. Montezuma was just ...

    ... ticket to Paquera. Of course, this wasn't without the usual bureaucratic nonsense, as those taking vehicles could only purchase a ticket for the car and the driver. If they wanted to take any passengers, they then had to join a seperate queue to buy additional tickets. Who thinks up these schemes?

    I watched the ferry pull into the port and within half an hour, we were able to board. I noticed it was similar to the roll on, roll off ferries at ...

    ... many colorful butterflies, sparkling streams and sweet wild-berries around. We enjoyed the beautiful forest, the vivid colors of nature, the silence and the fresh air.

    On our way back we stopped for a short break. We were sitting in the shade under a tree. While eating cookies and drinking soda, we talked about life in Central America and Europe.

    We have reached our last full day in Costa Rica, and tomorrow we embark on a marathon journey starting at 5.30am from our current location in Montezuma on the west coast of the country, and ending (hopefully) in Lima, Peru around 9pm. Our STA Tour ended a couple of days ago but, rather than return to San Jose then, we elected to stay on in this small and characterful fishing village perched on the Nicoya Peninsula. Our hostel is literally on the shoreline and I am lying ...

After listing the lessons learned, or not learned, by every one of the "blessings" i'd experienced over the last year, "Listen to my body - STOP" was the most recurrent. Others included; "have discipline to wait", "rest and restore", "heed the voice of God", and many more. I finally learned ...
