Subject: Re: Costa Rica
Hello Harold:

We were in Costa Rica in February 2002. We did all our travelling by local buses and found it very enjoyable. The roads are not in great shape so I would advise against renting a vehicle. I have a travelogue posted on TheTravelzine if you would like to read it: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/TheTravelzine/files/ Jose, who ran the B&B in Alajuela, now has a ranch which accepts guests http://www.geocities.com/angelvalleycr Jose is a wonderful host. We felt totally at home at Vida Tropical http://www.vidatropical.com in Alajuela. It is a great place to start and end your holiday. They will transport you to and from the airport. Costa Rica is a wonderful country and I am sure you will enjoy your stay there.
