    Unfriendly Staff Marred the Stay In An Otherwise Beautiful Place

    Beautiful property and setting right on the Pacific coast. Rooms were very comfortable, although they had no place to sit and write. Our breakfasts were satisfactory but nothing special. Our main complaint, however, was the attitude of the restaurant staff. The only place for wi-fi access was in the main building and there the only place to sit was in the restaurant. The staff was clearly not happy having us there. We came away with the impression they felt it would be a great place to work if it were not for the damn customers. We took it as a reflection of how they were treated by the hotel management.

    ... lunch we also walked across a bridge to look at all the crocodiles. I counted 23 (in one little area!) and that's not counting the ones under the water! They can grow to be 7 meters long! That's 21 feet! Wouldn't want one of them to pop! (Anyone know what movie that's from? Spoiler alert: Nemo) After the crocs we finished our journey and came into view of the Pacific Ocean. It is beautiful. Quepos is this little touristy town right on the beach and our hotel is ...

    ... on our way. A long ride down a twisty dirt road, over a few very questionable bridges, and literally through a river, and then we were there! Deep in the rain forest. We were first given fresh fruit to snack on, then headed into the butterfly garden; a netted area where butterflies are bred and live for a while until released into the wild. There were so many beautiful species, especially the blue morpho butterfly. There were also venomous snakes in ...

    ... believe there was a time when I dreaded stuffing all my quick dry into that backpack one more time. So into the cab and off to the bus station I went. My first destination was Manuel Antonio National Park. I bought my ticket, bought a cup of coffee and settled in with my National Geographic to wait for the bus. I got this. I'm on my own again. Just me and the road....

    ....And this awkward boy that just sat down next to me. He's a Polish ...

    ... Took another part of the trail and Robert was leading the way when suddenly he stopped and said, "there is a snake." Got some pictures of it and do not think it was poisonous.

    Decided to head on back and fix some lunch. On the way back stopped by the bridge before the entrance to the park and there was a guide there and he pointed out a jesus lizard to us. Called this,because it appears to walk on water.

    We've made our final drive back toward San Jose, in order to fly out tomorrow. We can't believe the time is almost ended and we look back on our many experiences with happiness and fullness. As we see more and more big homes of Canadians and Estado Unidenses and read more signs and menus in English, we see how lucky we are to have found this sweet little place here called La Encantada. It's a picture perfect, ...
