    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

    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.

    Cloud forest and sunshine in Monteverde

    A travel blog entry by goodner on May 28, 2015

    ... But on the third hike we took, it was awful! It was straight-up the entire 1,750 feet, and when we finally got to the top, we stopped for five seconds before coming down. I was really sore when we got back to the hotel, and I was tired. It was worth it because after that I got a Gatorade! On the last day we went zip lining. I was nervous, excited, and needed to go to the bathroom. There were 7 zip lines, and my mom freaked out on most. She is scared of heights, ...

    ... After breakfast I stayed at the restaurant to blog while Erin went swimming and Derek and Larry walked around. I ended up going to the hotel lobby because I couldn't get the internet to connect at the restaurant. I finished my blog and added the pictures. Then I went to the Souvenir Shop to see if they had a belt I could buy. I am using an old one of Larry's that is way too big to hold up my old hiking ...

    ... garden. Oh! I just remembered. Before we made it to the crater, we saw a sloth! It wasn't the famous type of sloth but it was still a sloth! Hopefully when we go to the cloud forest we'll see more. And yes Peg, I got a picture! (But it's on my camera not my phone so you'll have to wait) So after the delicious strawberry shakes, we eventually made it through the tiny, winding, hilly streets to Grecia where we saw this really cool church that ...

    Day 7 - going into Arenal volcano

    A travel blog entry by lovejezelle on Jan 12, 2014

    ... Then when we went up the hike to overlook the Arenal volcano, half of it was covered with clouds already because of the weather - disappointing! Then, when we were looking for the natural hot springs but instead just found a pool with warm water - disappointing! But we've paid $15 and figured, we might as well dip our feet and get our money's worth.

    We started getting around 5:40 pm to head home. Lucia and Angela decided they were staying one more night, ...
