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.
