Happy New Year. I'm in Costa Rica!

Day 1: San Jose city walk.  It was a long walk.

I spent my last day of 2014 in Atlanta, Georgia, and landed Costa Rica in the middle of the day today.  It's too late to go to the Volcanoes or any National Parks so I spent the rest of the day in San Jose.

$1USD = 533 colones

Definitely a wrong day to visit the city.  The museums and many shops including Mercado Central are close for the holiday.

McDonald's, KFC and Taco Bell are not too hard to find.

Just thought they're too cute.  About $.40USD per bottle.

Local bus line

Chinese Restaurant menu :p. French fries cost about the as main Chinese dishes.

There is really nothing much to see in the city.  I walked pretty much everywhere, and stop by almost all tourist attractions. A lot of them are close for the New Year day.

    1. I didn't go to Cahuita. I didn't get to the Caribbean site. I heard it's beautiful.
