    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 ...

    ... what their experiences were because that is next on our travels after Montezuma.

    One of the reasons we had chosen to go to Cristina's was that they advertised they had kayaks for rent and we had read there was a river nearby that you could get to and kayak. There were two kayaks on the property, one a single and one a double.

    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 ...

    ... why they are a menace to the trees.

    A black iguana was in front of us in the middle of the trail. Everybody took pictures and suddenly a bright orange bird flew and landed on a branch to our right. Everybody got excited about the bird and forgot about the iguana. When one of the Taiwanese moved backwards, the iguana was startled, and the three Taiwanese jumped to their feet and screamed. We saw the iguana instantly change its colors. Whether it was ...
