    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.

    ... paying the prices based on other countries and experiences we had that cost a whole lot less. Even the food is expensive, relatively speaking. To go out for a meal, it may cost less than that same meal in North America, but marginally cheaper at best. So, we thought that grocery shopping and doing our own cooking would save money, but we find the grocery stores here in Jaco to be quite expensive. We find that it's not a whole lot cheaper to ...

    ... certificates hugging and congratulating all the kids. I must admit that I am so proud of all the kids, although they didn't all do as well as thy would have liked on the day, they did represent the best from their school and worked so hard in the lead up. It is such a fantastic last day and a perfect way to wrap up my time here at GVI. The day ends with a spontaneous volunteer sunset dinner, following by ladies night (free drinks), pool and giant jenga, which I am amazing ...

    That's my prediction for the group game in the World Cup having seen a bunch of Costa Ricans kicking a ball around on the beach in Puntarenas. We had a more relaxing start to the day as we were able to walk off the ship straight into town to find our coach before the 9.45 departure time for another full day tour. We had booked onto a river rafting trip - think more Aire & Calder than Colarado - which was 1.5 hrs drive away. ...

    ... Let him go. Let the negativity that comes with him go. Can I? Isn't that what I came here to think about? How am I answering this question the first day I get here? Moving along...

    Then at 830, it was a rush to photography class where I met Carlos, our photography instructor (who also teaches surfing!). Hey, I finally get to slowly understand what shutter speed, aperture, and iso stands for. I'm slowly getting the hang of it and how to put it ...

    Everyday begins early here. It's dark at 5:30pm and gets light around the same time in the mornings. By the time 8:30pm rolls around, I'm tired and am in bed reading. (Not much is new, huh?)

    As usual, I was up by 6:15am this morning and the boys were already gone, off to meet their fishing captain about 100 yards down the beach. The boats launch right from the beach into the surf. A half-day trip was planned ...
