... the cache back we move onto the next one. All the caches on our trip are located at points of interest, a monument, a statue. It takes you off the beaten track and to places you would never think of going. Such fun.
We didn't find them all and we left Sue and Malc to continue as by 3pm the heat was getting oppressive and we needed to find an air-conditioned coffee shop to cool off. We locate a Starbucks and enjoy a White ...

So that's where I'm headed, to give my time for 7 weeks in the hope of building a few houses and making a small but important difference to a few ...
... a stable with lots of horses, sitting around getting ready to gallop through the forest. A bunch of ATV's getting revved up for the run through the jungle. My sister wasn't kidding about an adventure."Ok so, I'll drive while you can sit on the back and take pictures"
Can you even work that thing?"No, but now would be a good time to learn."

TravelPod Member ReviewsSan Juan Park Hotel
We found this great hotel at the last moment of our searches. We were going to stay at a big chain, and so glad we stayed here. The room was clean, ceramic floors, clean and stocked washroom. Not to mention a great price. There is free laundry on the 4th floor! Yes, we would stay there again.
Front desk friendly and helpful as to where to park, catch the bus, eat and get to the rain forest..
Breakfast is included, not just a bun and banana, there was cereal, toast to be made, with butter and jam, 3 juices, coffee, fruit and a choice of 2 different buns and a muffin to choose from. We left full.
Nice neighbourhood too!
