      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 …

      Said good bye to the Costa Rican sun with an evening on the beach and the building of a sandcastle in Jaco. We spent the last night in San Jose at Hostel Urbano (highly recommend) and had a very classy meal of wine and cheese and baguette and ...

      ... there are no surprises. It has also been refreshing to do very physical work that results in visible progress and completed projects. It is hot and sweaty, dirty work, but nothing a cold shower can't fix. Needless to say, there is likely to be more volunteering like this in the future. Please pray that we would be a light and salt to the people we are working with in this way. This truly has been a jungle ...

      ... was 45 mins away and it was shopping / food / drink / toilet break. Fortunately Mr Ron stopped the coach several times to point out trees and places of interest which helped put some distance between us and the other coaches so as not to descend on the next stop all at once. So by the time we arrived, there was no queue for the toilets.

      Complimentary fresh fruit pieces, fruit punch and alcohol samplings were available. The coffee liqueur ...

      ... while it became kind of repetitive. Don’t get me wrong here! I was glad I’ve came but I wouldn’t do it twice in other words! Blame it on the fact that I wasn’t sitting in the front seat!

      One thing’s for sure! I was glad that it didn’t rain since after all, we were in a rainforest and our guide had ...
