    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.

    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 …

    I then headed back to the school for a botanical jewelry class…..it was all in Spanish. I will definitely not be a professional jewelry maker any time soon. This class was the most brutal experience so far.

    ... always went in front. I never really had to do anything. She did break out into a trot omce or twice for no apparent reason, maybe she always wanted to be in the front and didn't like it when some other horse attempted a passing manouvre. Ott's dad had a dodgy one though, and he ended up having to swop horses with the guide. After a diy tuna sandwich dinner me, Ott and her.dad set out to climb Cerro Chato volcano. No sooner had we set foot out of the door ...
