Today, we are traveling from Manuel Antonio to Alajuela to relax before our flight tomorrow afternoon. We learned yesterday, that the bus that goes to San Jose from Quepos stops at the Juan Santamaria International Airport in Alajuela. This was great news, as we didn’t have to take an expensive shuttle to Alajuela.

We reached Alajuela in the afternoon. After storing our luggage at our Hotel, Hostel Cala, we headed off to one of the many cafes for lunch. Alajuela, felt more laid back than the busy capital city of San Jose. In the center of Alajuela is a grand church and a lush green park to relax. There are also a lot of interesting architectural buildings, statues, and smaller parks around. After chilling around downtown, Alajuela we headed back to our hotel for the night.

Tomorrow, we are flying back to Toronto. It is a little bitter sweet. I am going to miss Costa Rica, but I am looking forward to getting back to my old routine.
