Costa Rica

COSTA RICA | Friday, 3 February 2012 | Views [857]

With warnings from other travellers about how expensive Costa Rica is we did not spend long here…in fact only 3 days.

We stayed one night in Puerto Viejo at an absolutely enormous hostel that had a variety of rooms, tents and hammocks available to sleep in.


We made a day trip to a beautiful beach in Manzanillo where Marcello and Ed played in the water like little boys. Marcello also spent half of the afternoon making animals in the sand and cracking open a coconut.


From here on to San Jose where both Ed and I got food poisoning which luckily only affected us for 1 horrible night. I tried to bail on getting the bus to Nicaragua the following day but there was no sympathy from the others and so I had to suck it up and endure the bus ride. The border crossing into Nicaragua was incredibly frustrating and both Ed and I nearly snapped at the multitudes of people trying to sell various forms of crap to us.
