8a.m. was FREE breakfast, pancakes, freshly cut pineapple, and coffee/tea. The fruit was delicious and fresh, pancakes were slathered with maple syrup, and coffee to die for. The coffee is way less bitter than typical coffee, it's more like a cocoa almost!
Kristofer, Frederik and I went back to the Mall, I tried my card again in one ATM, no luck, I'll contact my bank and try again later (tough without a phone). They are now leaving for Montezuma (5.5hours via bus and ferry approx. 12$), there they will go hiking, swimming in waterfalls, and surfing...I hope to join them tomorrow but didn't want to waste my paid night here at Hostel Bekuo.
I ended up going downtown in San Jose with another traveler. The downtown isn't quite like an American city, downtown is just a place to buy lots of things, not skyscrapers, so it's hard to tell when you are "downtown". The food here was cheaper and more local. I had chicken, rice, veggies, salad, bread, and a refresco (soda or juice) for 2800 colones (5$ and change).
At night I went to el cuartel for live salsa music, lots of beautiful people and everyone was very happy, I may have had a few too many cervesas but I had a good time and stayed safe haha...I'll be heading to montezuma now
