Alejuela, Costa Rica




Wednesday June 18th

I decided to make one last splurge and bought an airline ticket from Bocas del Toro to San Jose. It saved me 13 hrs of traveling on the bus. After arriving at San Jose I shared a cab with someone from Seattle and drove the short distance to Alejuela.

Alejuela is Costa Ricas second largest city and closest to the international airport. It is much safier and nicer than San Jose. The bus ride to the airport tomorrow will only be 75 cents rather than the $15 a taxi would charge to airport from San Jose.

The town has a beautiful central park lined with Mangrove trees and brick streets.

i enjoyed looking at all of your pictures and reading about your adventures. My husband and I traveled to costa rica 2 summers ago and I fell in love. We caught sail fish from Play Hermosa and visited Arenal and Tabacon Springs. I am committed to learning spanish before we go back though. We were a funny site in the grocery store trying to find things with our translation dictionary. LOL We live in Natchez and I found your blog on Natchez
Scene. Keep exploring

Thanks for the comment. My traveling has gone from a passion to more of a compulsion. The more I travel, the more I realize how little I have travel. Backpacking also gives one the opportunity to travel more for less money and be more in touch with the country you are visiting.
