Where I stayed
Rocking J's

Flag of Costa Rica  ,
Thursday, July 12, 2007

I basically decided to skip Costa Rica.  I just was not feeling  excited about it plus its super expensive compared to the rest of central America.  I met so many people that loved it though so I cant wait to come back and do it properly.   I would be a good 2-3 week vacation spot, especially with all the cheap flights from the states.  
   Peruto Viejo was suppose to be a highlight of Costa plus it was on my way to some islands in Panama.  My first night in this town I booked into the crappiest room I have stayed in to date!  The room was like a bug infested shed with gecko poop all over the bed.  The walls did not go all the way to the ground so that wildlife could roam where they wished.   I had a crab the size of a soft ball with disproportionately huge claws scurrying around my room all night.   It was starting to freak me out because I could hear him scurrying this way and that checking out my backpack and shoes.  As the night wore on,  I became more paranoid because Mr Krabs kept on scuttling this way and that. Plus I had to pee and I kept thinking the moment I put my toes on the ground he would pinched them off!  I finally drifted off to sleep only to be awoken by something jumping on my chest and jumping off again!  I looked up and could only catch a glimpse of a creature as it scurried through a side panel on the wall and was gone! It was furry and a bit bigger than a squirrel.  Once again I feel asleep only to have the little bugger do it again!   Ahhhh  creepy!   Needless to say the next day I moved to a hostel called Rocking J's where you can rent a hammock or tent.
       Rockin J's was nice place to hang out and it was close to the beach but it was 15 min walk from town.  Everyone that stays there including me never goes back to town for the bars since it such a hassle.  Not really having a blast here, I decided to move on to Panama the next day.  This explains the 2 lousy pictures
