We flew from Lapa Rios to San Jose, Costa Rica (a 45 minute flight) and instead of making another 12-14 hour travel day, spent the night at the San Jose Marriott. We were not disappointed, as it was just a relaxation stop to make the travelling more palatable. Great service, beautiful grounds and good food.
I don’t know if I would make the trip for the driving range though.
I tried to get the groundskeeper to explain to me the name of this tree. It didn’t work out (He did not speak English). The fruit was very interesting looking.
A small colonial church sits on the grounds.
I also stocked up on 10 bags of Costa Rican coffee beans. I have been enjoying them every since. And with that, we left Costa Rica. I would highly recommend it. Next time, we need to get to the volcanoes.
