    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 . . .

    We checked out of our house and headed directly to the Farmacia in Jaco. I had developed a sinus infection and knew from Andrew that I could buy antibiotics directly from the pharmacy without a doctor's prescription (yes! wish we could do that in the States). Hopefully the generic Z-pack I bought for $13 U.S. will knock it out.

    We …

    We have really enjoyed our time in Montezuma even though we did not get to walk around as much as we have in the past. We did have one great evening at Luna Llena when one of our neighbors came up to us and asked if we spoke english and we answered that we did and he asked if we wanted to share the fish he had caught that day. We ...

    ... a wall of mountain ranges going for miles. It was sheer breathtakingly stunning, what a way to start the day!! Two hours later we were one step closer to landing in our little beach spot. We climbed off the giant ferry, it was almost like a mini spirit of tassie. We'd been told the local bus meets the ferry when it comes in, so to ignore the few taxi sprukers that will tell you the bus isn't coming. After waiting another two hours the offer to pay $70 for the taxi to take us, ...

    On the way to the build site, one of our finest had made the comment, "It is a beautiful day in Costa Rica, there are much more clouds today!". True, it was a beautiful day but those clouds didn't stick around long!

    As we continued on our morning commute, we made an unexpected stop. As our bus pulled down the gravel dusty road we noticed what appeared to be a shed off in the distance. As ...

    ... still half asleep. I drifted in and out of consciousness the next 3-4 hours as we traversed from the high plains through mountains and cloud forest, small towns and streams down to the low lands and back to the heat. Our destination was Puntarenas which was the port town to jump from van onto ferry to take us the quick way, as the crow flies over to Nicoya, the southern peninsula of Costa Rica smack bang on the Pacific Ocean. It was now 9am and the scene was a usual ...
