Central America, Costa Rica

The rest of Costa Rica

8 Jun , 2015   Gallery

I visited many places in Cost Rica but from some of them I simply don’t have any pictures or stories to share. The first reason was the weather. Travelling around Costa Rica at the beginning of a rainy season can be quite hazardous. It is very unstable and it can start raining anytime, especially around the […]

Travel Guide – Cuba on a budget

4 Jun , 2015   Gallery

Everybody who visited Cuba knows that travelling around this amazing island is VERY expensive. The average daily budget is usually around $50. I usually spend this amount of money in 2-3 days, not one. So, is a cheap travelling in Cuba just my secret wish or are there some ways how to achieve it? The answer is […]

Monteverde

From Cuba I decided to go directly to Santa Elena, small mountain village in Monteverde area. There are couple of interesting things to do here – the highest bungee jumping in Latin America, first zip lines in Costa Rica or beautiful cloud forest national parks. Direct bus from San Jose supposed to take 4 and half […]

Nicoya Peninsula

It has been almost 6 weeks (with 3 weeks pause in Cuba) since I started traveling around Costa Rica. Everybody was warning me that Costa Rica is expensive and I should be prepared to spend a lot of money. Honestly, it’s not so far from the truth. Costa Rica really isn’t very cheap. The good […]

Tips

How to watch your budget?

25 May , 2015   Gallery

The problem not very known to tourists but so familiar to long-term travellers. How to manage money so it lasts as long as possible? No, I am not talking about the chosen ones who have rich parents or won the lottery and have unlimited amount of cash. I am talking about ordinary people like me who left their […]

The thing I appreciate the most about solo long term traveling is freedom I have. I especially love the last minute decisions. Exactly what happened on my way back from Pavones. As I already wrote it was very hard to leave that place. I could easily live there for couple of weeks. Unfortunately, I don’t have […]

Well, well, well. Finally in Costa Rica. After 2 days without electricity I left Bocas Del Toro archipelago and decided to cross the border. One month in Panama was just enough. Bastimentos was a lot of fun and relax but it was time to move on. And it wouldn’t be me if I didn’t forget […]

Bocas Del Toro

Well, I am finally getting into it. I thought travelling will be all fun and happiness but that’s not so true. The same feelings as I had in Lost and Found hostel returned on Bocas Del Toro archipelago. There are couple of inhabited islands over there but people usually stay on main island called Isla Colon and neighbour […]

Boquete

After seeing the perfect volcano Baru so many times from the terrace of Lost and Found hostel I decided to go to Boquete and climb it. Boquete is a small town located in Chiriqui region, currently quite touristic and widely english speaking. This is mainly due to number of american expats who are moving here. One […]

Valle De La Mina

How were things going in Valle De La Mina? Not so good. Many people recommended me an eco hostel called Lost & Found. The cool thing about it is that it’s in the jungle. The place has really great views of whole valley (and mainly volcano Baru) and great hiking trails. The only problem for me were those […]

Playa Venao

I initially wanted to travel to Santa Catalina to learn surfing. However, Dano from Morgan Bay hostel recommended me to go to Playa Venao instead. This is what I really love about travelling. You can change your plans in 1 minute. And man, was it a good decision. Playa Venao is very well known business for surfers. […]

Okay, so I wanted to visit the Atlantic side of Panama Canal in Colon. I searched hostels and the only one I found was called Morgan Bay and was owned by SLOVAK guy Dano. What the hell. Quite unrealistic, huh? So I took an air-conditioned express bus playing Jackie Chan movies from Albrook bus station and […]
