Dean has wanted to go to Costa Rica for years, so we finally decided to go. We had enough credit card points to pay for the airfare, and we exchanged timeshares for a two week trip. Our friend, Bruce went with us. He left from Phoenix airport around midnight, 9/23. We left the following morning.
We arrived in San Jose in the evening and were picked up at the airport by a shuttle driver and taken to our unit, Villas Palmas. When we arrived, Bruce was in the unit, resting after his long day. There was a delay in Miami due to mechanical issues. Then when they finally flew to San Jose, they could not land due to weather (rain). After circling a while, they were getting low on fuel, so had to land in Nicaragua. It was not a friendly area, and the passengers were told, “Do not leave the plane!” He was so glad to finally arrive in San Jose!
We took a little tour of our condo: two floors, three bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms. It is like an apartment! But we were surprised to see bars on the windows, even on the second floor!Read more
