Costa Rica: The capital San José

Kali brought Kathi and Peppi to the port, where a ferry goes to Puntarenas a few times a day. In the meanwhile Jules and Kali spent the next two nights close to the port at a nice beach. Public transport is pretty cheap in Costa Rica, but often not so easy. There are about twenty private companies with buses, which go only some routes and bus stations are often not located at the center.

Kathi and Peppi enjoyed the ride on the ferry for about 1 ½ hours. In Puntarenas we took a collectivo to the bus station and got the last seats in a bus to San José. After 2 ½ hour drive we arrived at late afternoon in the center of San José and went by taxi to a hotel. First we thought it is way too much overpriced, but both were tired and didn’t want to look for another hotel. The staff was really friendly and instead of the normal price 65 $, we got it for the local price 40 $ inclusive breakfast. 🙂

 Also a local bar was around the corner with good prices: Three tequila for about 1,50 and a beer for about one dollar. 😛 We spent many hours there and tried not to think about the next day. Close to midnight we went to bed and got up early next morning. After the breakfast we left the hotel and Peppi booked a hostel at the Parque Nacional for the night. We walked around and did some sightseeing in the busy town. It is a nice and clean city, but not so much to see.

 After a little nap in the hostel Peppi went with Kathi to the airport. It was so hard to say good bye, but everybody knew that it isn’t for a long time. Also Kali and Peppi will go back home to Austria in about a month. Travelling with her was a pleasure. Both were wondering that their relationship is still so good working after such a long time without each other. But it is real love!

Peppi went back to the hostel in San José and got up early next morning, because he wanted to catch the first bus back to Puntarenas.
