    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.

    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 ...

    ... and Sallie asked me to feel her forehead. She was burning up. The taxi dropped off Rodrigo and Leon (who is adorable) at Rodrigo's and Sallie and I at our hotel. Sallie wanted to lie down for awhile in the air conditioning. We talked about the possibility it was heat stroke and discussed going to a doctor. After a bit, Sallie agreed to go. When I went to get a cab I came back to find her being sick. She was feeling ...

    ... grabbed our belongings and made it to the Princess Theatre with minutes to spare. We got our tour number / sticker and were directed to the Theatre and then told we could wait in the Wheelhouse Bar - perhaps the bags under our eyes suggested we were older that we looked. Either way we didn’t care so long as we made it to the excursion.

    Outside on the pier our Aqua #5 group was lined up liked school children. We were summonsed ...

    ... 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 ...

    ... others off we headed out. After three quiet hours on our little bus, we arrived at the port. We loaded our provisions on to one boat and after filling our pichingas with tasty mainland water and a sneaky last ice-cream, we boarded our boat to the island. Those in the front had a lovely ride, those of us in the back got soaked to the skin! Ronnie the boat driver pointed out the beaches along the coast of the island and I felt renewed excitement for what lay ahead staying in such ...
