    I was really skeptical about staying at this hotel because a lot of glowing reviews came from people that have only reviewed this one property. I know some hotels get their friends to write them good reviews to bump their stats so I was a little on the fence. I dedided to try it anyway and I'm glad that I did because the price was right, the room was comfortable and the distance to the park entrance & the beach were wonderful. The service wasn't spectacular, not bad, just low key. Sometimes we'd stand at the front desk looking for some help and there would be no one around, then another guest told us that they lived upstairs and we needed to ring a bell by their door to get their help. It would have been nice to know this when we checked in. Sometimes we found that the language barrier was an issue, but that's partly our fault for not practicing our Espanol before going on our trip. At some point in our trip I lost my bank card and they let me into their house to use their phone to call my bank, which I found very helpful. The property was safe, some reviewer commented that it's down a sketchy back alley, but I would disagree about the sketchy part. Yes, it's just off the road, down an alley, but we didn't feel unsafe for one second. It was lit and you needed a key card to access the building. Manuel Antonio was probably our least favorite destination because the prices are so high and it's really touristy, but if you are coming here and you're on a budget, Villa Prats is a good option. Just don't expect a 5 star hotel.

    ... excited than we were about the wildlife we spotted.

    In the end, Manuel Antonio acquitted itself quite well today, despite the negative first impressions we had of the area yesterday. Sure, the place is completely overrun with tourists, but it still managed to deliver a wildly entertaining experience, albeit different from what we had shared down at Drake Bay. Spotting that sloth today certainly was the highlight, and left us with some very sloth-like ...

    After lunch, we left the Gulf of Nacoya coast and drove inland toward the Central Valley and San Jose. In San Jose, we would spend the next two days in an Association of Residents of Costa Rica seminar.

    On the drive to San Jose, the rain clouds built higher and higher with every mile. It was fascinating to watch the progress of the mist and the rain as it ...

    After spending our last night at Rancho Cerro Azul, we sadly said goodbye to our hosts Don Alvaro and his daughter Tatiana we headed out to our next destination: Quepos/Manuel Antonio National Park.

    Poor Brian, the drive was quite treacherous and we arrived in Quepos more than 5 hours later. The owner of the place was a very nice lady who greeted us with a lot of information and instructions that Brian was ...

    ... Soon, we realized somethign had been lost in translation, and they meant to say the celebration was 10 min out of town, not that it was going to be happening in the streets in 10 min,

    We debated going, but decided it was ok because they were a married couple (and I had my mace handy). Once we got there, we found out, to our pleasant suprise, we were at the fair! Maria and Carlos opened the bags they had brought, and pulled ...
