    There's no doubt about it, it was definitely time to get out of San Josť as it was safe to say and fully verified that you do not come to Costa Rica to visit it's capital City.

    ... calling it - only to Mike thank goodness. I would've looked like an idiot telling a bus driver that I want to go to "cheese") and from there headed to Dominical, In search of the perfect beach town for mike.
