This place was out of our budget from the start.
It was a long road to Patagonia so we skipped through most of Costa Rica and saved money where ever we could. We stayed with friends, we lived on a white bread, bananas and avocados, and we hitched rides through the entire country.
When we got to the Caribbean, Ania and I camped on the beach. It was free and better than Rocking J’s - the cheapest, most obnoxious hostel in the area. (Some people never graduate from college.)
On the beach, alone, we watched the sun rise out of the ocean and swam naked in the morning light. When we got thirsty, we cut open a coconut.
Not bad for budget traveling.
