Feb 24: Goodbye Nicaragua
After a month of Nicaragua, it's time to say goodbye and move on to Costa Rica, we won't stay here long, probably just few days: it's too touristy and expensive. Bus to La Virgen c10, then bus to the border c20. Smooth walk thru immigration and then deluxe bus to San Jose, which felt good after a month of chicken buses!
At around 5pm we are in noisy polluted San Jose, CR, we find a decent new hotel close to the bus station: Hotel Quinta Avenida, $20 for a room with private bath, wifi available, and TV. For dinner we decide to go to the center. It's much more congested, noisy, polluted and dirty than it was 8 years ago. I had to cover my nose while walking in the streets. Finding a decent restaurant that didn't have NY prices was impossible so we just accepted to go to El Patio, a big restaurant on a pedestrian street, with live music and actually good food.
