  • Hello La FortunaDay 11, February 13, 2015 Woke up to rain so hard that even the rooster went inside. Unlike a downpour at home that lasts up to 5 minutes this downpour went on for hours. The tin roof on our Posted by Colenso in On the Road Again | Feb 13, 2015
  • Santa Rosa de Poco Sol HomestayDay 10, February 12, 2015 Our host, Alex, served us and the birds breakfast with occasionnal disappearances when he heard a bird he needed to look for. We then climbed in the bus and headed off for our Posted by Colenso in On the Road Again | Feb 13, 2015
  • White Water & ToucansDay 9 Feb 11,2015 Sleep seems to be an ‘optional activity’ on this tour. No roosters but traffic which is surprisingly loud since we’re in cabins in a jungle setting. So awake at 5 a.m., up at 6:30 a.m. Posted by Colenso in On the Road Again | Feb 11, 2015
  • On the Way to SarapiguilDay 8 Feb 10,2015 Roosters! Totally annoying creatures. Theoretically we were sleeping in until 6:45 a.m. but once the roosters woke us up we could hear the surprising amount of marine traffic in the lagoon. They were heading off Posted by Colenso in On the Road Again | Feb 10, 2015
  • A Canoe Ride and a HikeDay 7 Feb 9, 2015 The roosters started around 2:30 a.m. Concern about waking up in time for our 5:30 a.m. canoe trip was alleviated, somewhat. Under the stars we got in Captain Bill’s canoe for 16 and headed out Posted by Colenso in On the Road Again | Feb 9, 2015
  • TortugueroDay 6 Feb 8, 2015 Wow! Beyond my expectations. Never thought we’d see a sloth up close in the wild. Saw four, no five (one had a baby!) along the side of the road. Two three Posted by Colenso in On the Road Again | Feb 8, 2015
  • Patriot GamesA popular destination here in Costa Rica is a town called La Fortuna. That would have been an obvious place to go next, but I had already been there as part of RTW I in 2003, so I gave it Posted by LordGibil in The Littlest Hobo | Feb 8, 2015
  • Last Day in San JoséDay 5 Feb 7, 2015 We had both read warnings about crime in San José including pickpockets, robberies, assaults, etc, all reported to be on the increase. We even know people who have been victims in the past while in Costa Posted by Colenso in On the Road Again | Feb 7, 2015
  • Jardín Botánico Lankester Day 4 Feb 6, 2015 Gail’s brother and sister-in-law gave her a book a few years back called “A Thousand Gardens to See Before You Die.” A wee challenge but Gail’s working on it, Fred in tow. Before we Posted by Colenso in On the Road Again | Feb 6, 2015
  • Walking around San José Day 3 Feb 5, 2015 What a difference 12 hours of sleep can make! Rested and fuelled by a buffet breakfast we were ready to start our day. Guide and maps in hand we headed out. We took Posted by Colenso in On the Road Again | Feb 5, 2015
  • The Long Way to San JoséDay 1 & 2 - February 3RD & 4TH, 2015 We are running the first two days together because that’s they way they happened. We booked on points months ago and were scheduled Vic-Seattle-SF-LA-San José. Our flight was late leaving Seattle Posted by Colenso in On the Road Again | Feb 4, 2015
  • Rock On, TommyThe border from Nicaragua to Costa Rica has a reputation for being a pain to cross, with several sources telling me to expect long queues and fussy officials. The two countries have had a bit of a tiff and apparently Posted by LordGibil in The Littlest Hobo | Feb 4, 2015
  • Volcanoes, Coffee, and Cloud ForestThursday morning we left La Fortuna and started heading back toward San Jose where we had originally landed.

  • La Fortuna We have been in the city La Fortuna the last 2 days. It's a very popular place to visit, but we have been surprised that it hasn't been that crowded. It must not quite be peak season yet. Posted by adventure_time in Costa Rica Adventure | Jan 21, 2015
  • Rio CelesteThis morning we went on a 3 hour guided hike in Tenorio Volcano National Park. The park entrance is only 1 km from our hotel. We were the only people with our tour guide which was nice. Posted by adventure_time in Costa Rica Adventure | Jan 19, 2015
  • Arrival in Costa RicaYesterday we rented a car at the airport and had a four hour drive to our hotel. The roads were better than we heard they were, but the last 4 kms were pretty interesting. The road was unpaved Posted by adventure_time in Costa Rica Adventure | Jan 19, 2015
