Buenos dias everyone! We safely arrived in San Jose last night. Getting here however was a bit of a scare. Justin and I were caught by surprise at the check in desk, where we found out a one-way ticket to Costa Rica is no longer feasible for Americans seeking to flee away to paradise with no end in sight. The ticket clerk informed us that we had to have a proof of exit from Costa Rica in order to board the flight. yea...i too thought we were spending a night in beautiful Phoenix, Arizona...good thing we had one get out of jail free card left with Joe...(Thanks pops-Justin) Surprisingly i held my cool in order to keep Justin from breaking a drenched sweat. Or maybe that was just the few bloody marys we had before kicking in, either way it all worked out in the end. Joe let us borrow a credit card to pay for two flights leaving out of Costa Rica into Belize City until we got our travel plans squared away.
Our hotel for the night was warm and pleasant. The free breakfast was certainly tolerable, one fried egg on beans and rice served with bread and fruit. Unfortunately we don't have much else to say about Costa Rica at the moment, seeing as how we arrived in darkness and haven't left our hotel gates yet. Today's agenda is to leave Hotel Mi Tierra in Alajuela and take a certified shuttle bus to the Pacific side, known as Playa Grande. Justin and I plan to relax in this area till the 7th of Feb. But knowing our adventure bug, that all may change over night. We shall keep you all posted. TTYL.
