Costa Rica is on

November 24th, 2006

I’m alive in costa rica. The country is as big as switzerland, or west virgina, but is super diverse. Half the population is in San Jose, where everybody flies into. I spent one night there at the Hostel Pangea – cheap spot, english friendly, and free internet. And had an amazing dinner at Bakea, But i didn’t come to costa rica for the city .. i came for beaches and rainforests.

So off i went to Samara (rhymes with camera), which most Ticos (short for Costa Ricans) say has the best beach in the country. It was soo very nice, only 5 hours from san jo. Besides the gorgeous beach, i stayed a a really good spot called Entre Dos Aguas, a hostel vibe but with the coolest wood and stone architecture and overall layout, best in town. However, I had the itch to move, so off to montezuma i went, and here i am now. This is the hippy SF of costa rica. More whites than locals, mostly italian, but plenty of americans. My room is like 30 feet from the beach. I just got here today, we’ll see how it goes. I also plan to hit Corcovado before the wedding. I got 10 days.
