      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.

      and if you think this one is cool watch this one of a Red-Capped Manakin bird’s
      courtship dance…the women in the video may be more fun to watch than the bird… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eI_quJRR Gxk

      The Maleku culture is very interesting and I am happy to
      support their eco-tourism business. Although it was their business it was clear
      they were happy to share their culture with others. ...

      It has been too long since I've written last, mainly because all of the rain cut off Wi-Fi for the entire street our hostel in Santa Teresa was on. We stayed at Casa di Gingi, which was awesome. I liked that hostel a lot! We met a couple from France, a girl from New York (Cleo), and two guys from Argentina- Gaston, who was also on a year long journey and working at the hostel for a bit, and Frederico, who came with us to Monteverde by bus, ferry, ...

      The road from La Fortuna to the Monte Verde Cloud Forest is slow, winding and for the most part un-paved. It's really not that far as the crow flies but it’s very very hilly – a bit like Gippsland but with fewer cows. If you do the whole trip by road it can take 7 hours or so to go 140km. Rather than wasting a whole day in a bus we opted for the more acceptable 3.5 hour option of bus-boat-bus. Instead of taking the road around Lake Arenal you head ...

      Thanks to the GPS unit we rented along with the SUV, we are traveling steadily in the right direction. Steve is driving and Julie is acting as "navagatrix" just as we do at home, but without the leather map. At a certain point on the way to Santa Elena, or more broadly, the Monteverde Cloud Forest, the road stops behaving like a road. The pavement part of the show ends leaving us with about two hours of dirt road encores. A line from John Bizarre's ...
