This was the most scariest place we have ever been. Well, perhaps Guate City is the most, but this is second. We didnīt stray more than 2 blocks from our hotel. Paul got threatened in the street for money and a freaky guy sat right behind me in an empty cafe for a few moments, checked me out, then left. Spooked me. Everywhere we went people asked us for money. So we just didnīt go anywhere. Luckily we had TV in our room so whiled away a night on the way to another national park. A lack of place to get decent food found us buying a kebab at 9am for breakfast. Can you believe they cook those things for breakfast. I definitely recommend giving this place a miss.

guapiles on

I'm very sorry you felt that way.
I spent a whole year in Guapiles beginning May 6, 2008 and ending June 19, 2009. I'm sorry you feel the way you do about Guapiles. I walk the streets feeling perfectly safe. People will ask you for money. But, it is your right to say no. They usually just wish a blessing 'dios' as they pass you looking for another with perhaps a softer heart. You missed the approximately 30 sodas there that would have gladly cooked you up some eggs, and pinto, with a fresh cup of coffee for 1,000 colones (less than 2 bucks) The folks in the Markets (El Dollar, and Mas X Menos are all very personable as well as the guards that watch that nothing happens to your car for 100 colones. The folks at El Colono, the large hardware store always go our of their way to make us happy. The bus drivers wave as they pass you on the streets.

Your Gaupileno experience was so very different than ours. Our experience was a rich, cultural adventure.

I enjoyed the kabobs also. But, a warm fresh bread baked at either of the musmainis is the favorite treat. Look me up next time you're in the neighborhood. I'll show you a better guapiles than the one you saw. 8855-7885
