Short solo visit to Costa Rica in May 2012. Took a Tica Bus from Panama City to San José, followed by a day trip to Volcán Poás, where I met several Californians who were studying Spanish in the town of Quepos. They were staying with a host family in town and offered me a place to stay, which I happily accepted. I had visited Quepos and Manuel Antonio in 2010, but it is such a beautiful place I absolutely did not mind a revisit! Their host family is super hospitable, always positive, curious, and open for good conversation.
