Time to relax

A travel blog entry by mothman on May 01, 2014

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 …

Like a Roller Coaster Down the Hills we Travel

... this time he growled at me. Guess he did not want to play catch anymore.

The beach runs right next to the main road. Along the beach, there are different areas that you can gain access to the main road. In between these places, there are houses and restaurants. For the houses, they are fenced in with solid walls. I thought - why be near the water when you have a solid wall interfering with your view of the beautiful beach?

All the houses mainly have fences around ...

... s will be unique to them but here's what's important to me:

Must Have's:

*Warm climate

Went down to breakfast and the only other person in there was an American talking to one of the owners so I sat with him. He now lives in Casta Rica and works in real estate and suggested Jaco, a beach resort which, he said, is on the way to Panama.

Before I went there I had to visit a Triumph dealer as the steering head boss had been loose for some time......maybe from the service by my good friend at South Bay Motors !! I ...

Another Great Sunday

... It's so great to hear him laughing and full of joy. The guys spent a lot of time with the kids this afternoon swinging and playing on the slides.

Prayed for Cesar and his wife tonight for them to conceive a child and for Michaela, a young woman from Washington state who has had migraines due to successive concussions playing soccer before she ...

    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.
