      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.

      ... Yamileth kindly stopped at the airport one more time and to my surprise my bag had arrived from Houston where even I hadn't travelled from! Ps-The new underwear feel great!!! Tonight we had a traditional Costa Rican "Casado" for dinner which Yamileth's sister prepared consisting of rice, beans & spice, fresh salsa & avacado served with tortilla chips. After dinner we went for a long walk in the warm wind through the neighbourhood to end the night. Buenos ...

      So last night, we kept losing power, and every time the lights went out, there was a knock on our door, followed by a scared Ian. Then he found a HUGE spider on his wall, which my roommates used my shoe to kill. It was DISGUSTING. Today was mostly a travel day because we had to go from the middle of the country to the coast. I guess we didn't realize until leaving our hotel that we ...

      ... be a long post, since we've been here for so long. This is the longest we'll stay in one place until we get to Moldova at the beginning of April (shout-out to Steph and Michael Ball who are welcoming us into their home in Chisinau!). We drove seven hours to our beach house on the edge of Manuel Antonio on December 28. It was a long drive, but well worth it once we arrived. The house is astonishingly cool with breathtaking views of both jungle and ocean. It is all ...

      ... loads of hugs and promises to keep in touch they finally depart. We order a taxi and make our way to the hotel. Just want to point out that this was booked by somebody else and I didn't even check what the hotel looks like online so we had absolutely no expectations. While in a taxi though, the driver tells us that it's the best hotel in Manuel Antonio - hotel Parador, set on a cliff and overlooking the ocean.

      Because of the heat, we feel exhausted and ...

      ... continued down the river The lodge was very pretty and had some fantastic walks, a swimming hole with a waterfall 2 minutes away and a natural water slide an hour away. We also had a personal guide for the three days- who told us about the area, told us where we could go, and cooked most of our meals. In the first afternoon (after a delicious home cooked meal) we headed to a nearby waterfall where we spent the afternoon jumping in ...
