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.

... of coffees brewed the old fashion way, thru cloth filters hung on a wooden holder. (Espresso Fashion). Brewed this way the coffee was already flavorful & sweet, so no additional sugar was needed. These plantations are grown at a very precise elevation (2,000 – 3,500 ft. above sea level). On the way back down the mountains we had the opportunity to stop and take in the views of distant volcanos, ...
... site it was time for lunch. Afterwards we set off in groups of 8 in our rubber rafts down the lazy river under instruction of our guides who thankfully knew how to keep us out of the trees. There were a few stretches of white water but nothing too scary and overall we had a very pleasant time bobbing along for a couple of hours. The bus collected us a few miles down river so we didn't have to paddle back to the start and ...
... 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 ...
Breakfast at Hotel Rancho Coral located just 5 doors down the beach from our beach house. Best pancakes ever!
Boogie boarding in front of the house.
Surf lessons in the afternoon with Brett Schroeder. Great surf instructor. Moved here 10 years again from Houston.
