    Avoid this city

    February 7, 2017 in Costa Rica

    Just in case you thought I was exaggerating!

    The train tracks run right through the city and the horn is constantly on.
    Imagine walking out your front door straight onto the tracks!

    And I love the park which had the stone seats facing the road! I liked the view of the telephones - presumably there so you can call for help.Read more

    The weirdest shopping mall

    February 7, 2017 in Costa Rica

    Was excited at the prospect of a mall to fill in time given I have another night here.

    If you need 90s fashion, plastic figurines, stuffed animals, bongs, a tattoo palour or sex shops then this is the mall for you! And all set in an ugly building with low ceilings and poor lighting.

    I did get a manicure which was nice but decided against a pedicure when I saw the spa bath.

    Walked around one of the more residential areas in the afternoon but this city is just ugly, dirty and dreary.

    Seriously was there a volcano?

    February 6, 2017 in Costa Rica

    Still no sign of the volcano the next day. Guess I will have to watch the Kadashians.

    We all put in $10US to hire a van so we can avoid catching a public bus. The tour company states that it is all 'part of the adventure' - yeah right. Done it enough times in my lifetime to be over it. In these countries it just increases the risk of theft and doubles your travel time.

    Uneventful aside from the crappy food stop in an over priced tourist shop with overpriced junk food. Where's my gelato to make me feel better?

    Now in the capital San Jose. A drive through city if ever I saw one. I even contemplate catching a bus to get out of here to the next place on the itinerary!

    At least I had a very nice pasta for dinner at one of the new trendy restaurants which are opening up in the neighborhood near the hotel.

    Was craving some orange juice when I got back to the hotel but the concierge told me not to go one way and that if I went the other way not to take much money and that it should be ok but it was at my risk. So no orange juice for me!

    Photos of the weird decor in the restaurant!

    Costa Rica!!

    September 5, 2017 in Costa Rica

    I was up early today and took a taxi to the airport. I flew to San Jose, Costa Rica via Panama. I caught a taxi to the hotel and met some of the people from my G Adventures tour. I had a relaxed arvo before we had our first meeting for the tour. We had dinner at a restaurant together and I had a yummy beef meal. We went to a local pub where there was a big soccer game on the TV between Costa Rica and Mexico. The crowd went absolutely crazy when Costa Rica scored a goal. It ended up a tied game!Read more
