Hotel is in a beautiful setting with hot springs that are delightful for soaking. The staff are very kind and helpful. We went to dinner last evening in their open-air restaurant, but there was a glitch: the chief and the one waitress had not shown up for work as scheduled. No problem, the front desk staff person took care of us and we had a wonderful sea bass for dinner. The chef finally arrived; it was a communications problem she said. The waitress never did show. Despite these glitches, which we chalk up to being part of the Costa Rican experience, we had a delightful evening and stay at the hotel.

Again, all the locals were super friendly. Some calling places for me, and finally one night ...
... a landscaped little garden area, hammocks, a swimming pool and bar area. Joe, one of the hostel staff recognises my accent. I ask him how he knew, as most people haven't a clue where I'm from. Turns out he is a Bostonian and his Dad's from Galway. Plus he has visited Belfast. It's only after 9am, so I go and have a proper breakfast and take a walk around the town.
A short distance away I see a sign for therapeutic massage. This is just what I need. My back has ...
... across! The SUV shimmied from the speed and the ****** road surface below. It lurched forward, and I heard more loose gravel flying away under the vehicle. Then, glorious triumph! WE had made it passed the ugly part, and the road was indeed beautiful again.
We paused on the road, and yelled back a thankful "gracias" to our friend on the moto, then continued on our journey. Fifteen minutes of solid dirt road, and pulled up to our gate at the finca. It was quite the ...
... this cloud forest as it is in places all over the world. March and April were the driest months ever recorded here, and the rains are less frequent and more intense, causing erosion concerns. We have seen first hand how crucial the gentle frequent rains are to the delicate balance of countless plants, insects and birds in this critical habitat.
What will happen to this forest, and what it will mean for the community of Monteverde, ...
