A real experience

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.

... with them at the end of my trip (through Lesley
who also works there) but at least I was able to come to the class once. I
spent the whole afternoon with the class and afterwards when I was walking home
they waved me over to join them in the park. They were mostly very young, 17 to
20, but I didn’t mind spending some time with them. One young man, Frankie,
played ...

... I feel
about getting home. I have never wanted to go home so much in my entire life.
What is happening? Have I lost the bold independence I had worked so hard to
build in myself? Why has this trip been so hard? If my life, and the people in
it, in Colorado better than my life before…so that I want to go home to it
more? Did this trip just push me too far? I have traveled plenty but what is
different? In Africa I traveled there alone, but I met up with ...

2/3-2/5 Sunsets, Orioles and Humming Birds

... high up you could hardly see the nest, so I held
the camera to the binoculars…and it worked! The quality isn’t great but you can
totally tell it is a humming bird on a nest! This was really neat to see. I
walked to a cattle round up pen I had used as my turn around point on my runs,
it provides a great view of the volcanos and the last few evenings had provided
lovely sunsets. Tonight was no ...

... refrigerator while we were

After coffee I spent some time sitting around talking with
the family, Fabri translating when necessary. They teased me as I read the
Spanish version of my research survey out loud but I returned the favor by
having them read the English copies out loud. It was nice to be able to get to
know them a little better and to learn a few new phrases that will be useful.
We also ...

... rides. This one was much longer than the first, about 15 miles versus maybe 5 miles last week. We visited some of her friends in a towns called Canas and Santa Clara and had a lunch out at the same restaurant as last week. I got a hamburger this time, it was alright, not as good as Mo Jeaux’s or Crown Pub but it was different than the rice and beans I eat for almost every meal so I ...
