We stayed here for 3 nights and loved every moment. Pablo and Ana are a lovely couple who went out of their way to make our stay memorable, and who do such a lot for the local community. We took the 3 night package, which we would recommend, partly because it is a long way to go to eat out, and also because the food is wonderful. It also includes 2 tours. We chose to have a tour of the farm and also a cookery lesson with one of the local villagers which was so nice. She cooked over an open fire and we had the meal with her family afterwards. Our cabin was lovely - spacious and spotless with a verandah with a hammock and a great view. We would thoroughly recommend this stay for anyone who wants to get away from the touristy places and have a genuine Costa Rican experience.

Oscar tried his hand at guiding but sadly one word descriptors are not great, but at least he is always smiling. Inside every driver is a secret guide just wanting to burst free. Some nice scenery as we went past Lake Managua with volcanos in the background. Apparently the lake is very polluted due to untreated stuff being allowed to flow into the lake.
After dropping off our bag at the hotel we were at the airport in plenty of time for our flight. ...

Later that night I questioned this when the cat was attacking my feet…once he
started “singing the song of his people” out the window I decided it was time
to kick him out. Tomorrow night I will make sure to cat-nap the female!
The morning chorus started early, 5am, and although I tried
to sleep a little longer the birdsong was deafening. I rolled out of bed around

... nice shady tree and a pebbly bar along the river. I packed up my reading and
some fruit and spent almost the entire day here reading and reflecting and
I am only a few days from going home now. And I am so very
excited! I look at my calendar 10 times a day, as if it will change, and count
the time down in different ways… I have this many days left, this many nights
left, this many cold showers left…The closer it gets the ...
... to San Jose to catch my flight) but if it does I will be leaving Tuesday of next week! Otherwise I leave Upala on Wednesday or Thursday, I don't want to risk any mishaps with timing and buses so I will spend a couple of nights in San Jose before I fly out early on Saturday. Sorry no pictures, just wanted to give everyone an update. I'm sure I will have some stories by Monday, just like ...
