    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.

    ... did so well! I know grown men from the Swiss military who couldn't do what you just did. Course, we had to kick them out." Here is a short video of our rappelling experience.

    We were visiting Costa Rica in the shoulder season - after the spring break crowd and before the summer crowd. This resulted in us feeling like we were the private owners of many of the places we went, including The Springs. We met one fun Manhattan couple who were on their way to a wedding at ...

    Many of these animals had been in homes and confiscated by the police or abandoned by people who no longer want to risk getting caught as the fines/prison time have been drastically increased in the last year. We saw leaf cutter ants at the end of our tour.

    ... 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 ...

    American guy (the fat one) was spewing all morning. After a kind of sleep in we checked out and wandered down the road for coffee to the cafe next door to An'chio. One of the best coffees I've had in a long time! No sugar necessary. Perfect taste. We arrived at the bus terminal about 25 mins early to already quite a crowd. Bus arrived promptly at 12.45 and the mad dash to get on the bus began. Luckily we were a ...
