      Close to centre, but down a side street so no noise. Family hotel so pools busy with people playing. Rooms very big with space to relax, downstairs rooms I think have full kitchen facilities, ours had lots off cooking related stuff but we did not use them. Breakfast good start to the day, but my egg was very salty, so next day I asked for no salt and was fine.Breakfast doesnt end really early unlike at some places. Check out at noon which is as good as we found in Costa Rica. Staff friendly and helpful. For the price paid this was the best value hotel we stayed at on our trip. The bed was not small unlike most over places we stayed in the country. Pillow was a bit small and soft, so had to ask for another one, there was also a lack of hooks to hang clothes/towels on, so we drapised stuff over the various furniture items. We arranged a private transfer to SJO airport at a price very similar to a shared shuttle service for 2 people, which was a pretty good deal and saved messing about with buses. We came from Quepos by public bus which was easy, cheap and less than 2 hours.

      Time to relax

      Local bus to Jaco took a bit less than 2 hours, seats not the most spacious but wasn't overly busy. We dropped our bags off, had a burger meal, then to look at the beach. Not exactly postcard pretty, but not horrific neither. Beach does not have typical facilities like drink or ice cream vendors. Surfing looked good first day, but we were a bit …

      Costa Rica: Disappointment

      ... property, it was still a 10 minute drive up a scenic windy hill before I finally go there. I read online that Playa Blanca was a pretty well kept secret, that not many people had really known about it, was very clean, had excellent snorkeling, and the waters were calm. Those were all lies. Maybe it was because I went there at 11am, peak of the day, or maybe I had some unrealistic expectations, but this visit to Playa Blanca was a let down. There was a ton of people, there ...

      ... of all the horrible things they had seen. They asked me if I could be there phycologist for the hours we were on the plane... I tried my best but it was really hard. But at least they said I made their 15 hours flight much better! Arriving in Brazil I was actually pretty excited to wait for 11 hours and rest my legs. But then the airport was the smallest airport I have ever been too. No internet and only chairs you can sit ...

      ... ability to balance on a moving board, but I'm giving new meaning to the term 'wipe-out'. DH is doing a little better but I'm sure it looks as though there's a sniper in the trees picking us off each time we try to stand. Each attempt at surfing is also followed by a thorough documentation of all new and recurring injuries (DH is winning that game but primarily because of a large bug that flew into her ear and never came out).

      This has been an amazing time in Costa Rica and our hearts are happy to come home and yet sad to say goodbye to so many of the kids that captured our hearts.
      We'll check in when we make it to Houston...and we should even be able to catch up with the rest of our team in the airport there for a few hours while we overlap there.

      We're trusting Him all the way home.
