After finishing my month-long research project in Cartago, I thought it would be a shame if I didn't skip over to the ocean and play a little bit! I took a bus from the coca cola station in San Jose. The ride was long, about 6 hours, but is perfectly enjoyable if you have a book and like to look out the window. You also get a beautiful ferry ride across the Gulf of Nicoya. Luz en el cielo is a beautiful hostel, amongst the prettiest I viewed in my short stay in montezuma. The people were very kind and accommodating, I recall no ill will towards my mattress, and I was provided with free wifi! I recall having a great conversation with a Dutch girl on my last night and then relaxing in a hammock while listening to the frogs. But don't take the advice on that hill lightly! It's a beast.
