Ziplining, Superman & Cloud Forest catchups!!!

A travel blog entry by m_and_m_time


Monteverde Cloud Forest!

My (Macushla's) cousin Mary and her boyfriend Ben had been traveling through Central America since June and we had been in touch often, discussing ways and possibilities of catching up somewhere along our journeys. As they were two months ahead of us, the likelihood of this happening seemed quite slim... This was …

Well what a blessing to meet Macushla and Matt in Costa Rica. We hadn't planned to hit Costa Rica, but with the opportunity to meet up, we were in! We met in Montverde, a place famous for it’s wildlife and 'Cloud Forest’. The perfect place to try ‘Ziplining’ for the first time and catch our first glimpse of a wild sloth (Ben …

Freitag, 2.8. Fahrt von Liberia nach Santa Elena - unspektakulär. Der letzte Teil Holperstraße (ca. 20km) war einfach nur wieder mal wahnsinnig anstrengend... Aber zum Ausgleich war die Aussicht auf grüne Wiesenhügel und erste Teile von Nebelwald mit dichten Wolken wunderschön. Nach einer frühen Ankunft konnten wir nachmittags auch schon direkt …

Got up at 8:50 a.m. in Santa Elena, Costa Rica. Mom, Justin, Silvia, and I headed out to breakfast, stopping first at Cosechas for some delicious smoothies made with fresh fruit and yogurt. Then we had some food at Restaurante Tico y Rico.

Back to the hotel to get stuff together for the day. Departed at 10:44. It was a 15-minute drive to …

My brother, Justin, and his girlfriend, Silvia, picked up Mom and I from the San Jose airport at 12:51 p.m. after we flew in on the inaugural United flight from Washington Dulles.

    Great host, clean and cosy wooden cabin style rooms (some with small cute balconies). Good breakfasts of coffee, juice, fruit, eggs, toast and pillo (rice and beans).
    Nice lounge area and the hosts allow guests to make themselves at home in the kitchen.
    Quiet and peaceful, yet a stones throw from one of the main roads.
    Also, it's really close to 'Taco Taco', the best cheap eatery in town!

    Bare-Bones Inn in Santa Elena

    Reviewed Apr 13, 2013
    by (6 reviews) Washington DC , United States Flag of United States

    The rooms are incredibly basic. Ours has a queen-size bed plus a twin bed. The queen has a nightstand - and that is the extent of the furniture. No closet, no dresser, no lamp on the nightstand, no desk, no nothing. The lighting is terrible with just one CFL bulb above the entrance and another in the small bathroom, which lacks hot water at the sink as well as a sink stopper. The room is $50/night, which strikes me as a tad high for what you're getting.

    The electricity went out on our second night here. There's no housekeeping service.
