We still had one more day before the end of our Costa Rican journey, and our WAI leaders packed it full of fun activities. From Cahuita we drove back over the mountains to the Central Valley and the San Jose area, with a stopover to visit the Escazu district.

It was hard to leave the warm hospitality and beautiful vistas at Casa Gray, but Saturday morning it was time to head back to San Jose to meet up with my Walking Adventures group. Susu arranged transit for me on Interbus, a shared ride service similar to an airport shuttle. After coming back down the dirt road from Monteverde, we switched buses at …

complicated and left us with about 20 minutes to work with patient 4...except
that patient 3 needed way more time than she was allotted, as she lived over an
hour away and could not return for a follow up visit. We split up the student

... it was not long before we were arriving in Santa Clara at our home for the next four nights, Treehouse Hotel. I rang the buzzer at the front entrance gate and Mark, the manager opened the gate.

TravelPod Member ReviewsResort Martino Hotel & Spa Alajuela
This hotel is in a great location a few minutes from San Jose airport. Across the street is Zoo Ave which has many rescued birds and other local species. The rooms are comfortable and the Italian-themed food in the main dining room was excellent. It was great preparation for my walking tour as the breakfast was served on the top floor and our rooms were down at the bottom of three flights of stairs! They do have shuttles that will pick you up if necessary.
