    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.

    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 …

    ... that stays with you because Costa Rica is one of the safest places to be I’ve found so far. I arrived in Jaco where I will stay until tomorrow evening early enough in the afternoon to enjoy the beach and my first Costa Rican sunset and it didn’t took long for me to start getting red! It was nice, relaxing and a welcoming relief after a long and arduous journey.

    ... court is nothing short of toxic and dangerous. Who knew that that much poop could come from such relatively small critters at those heights- it will surprise no one that I am assigned the 'poop' side of the court. And with the court situated next to a small river that is apparently home to the odd crocodile, any balls hit over the fence are automatically forfeited.

    ... brownie points associated with being fair trade. Starbucks can (and definitely do) buy just 5% of their beans from farms complying with fair trade standards, yet still get to use the fair trade logo on every cup, chocolate bar, cookie. If that doesn't smack of a con, know this: the odds are stacked that your soy grande with palm oil syrup is most likely that remaining 95% - cheaply produced, poorly picked and roasted. ultimately, very very unfair coffee disguised by ...
