The Mango Verde Hotel

Alajuela was home base for our family Christmas vacation to Costa Rica. The Mango Verde Hotel was our home for most of the trip and was only a block from the main square. We enjoyed the market, shopping, wandering, restaurants, and day trips to Volcan Poas, the Ojo de Agua, Heredia and San Jose.

The Central Park in Alajuela

This park was the best place to people watch and was only a block from out hotel. It was easy to get volunteers to go to the supermercado on the far side of the park. The park visitors ranged from the old men sitting on the benches, families shopping and going to the church, touring musicians from Columbia selling their CDs, and occassional tourists like ourselves.
