Wilson the man

When we arrived in La Fortuna, we needed transportation from our hotel to town. As good luck would have it, Wilson Elizondo (8388 2332) picked us up in his cab. This charming and personable young man took us into town. He recommended quality restaurants, the best attractions and advice on the La Fortuna area. One of his excellent recommendations was the Don Rufino restaurant. He was absolutely correct in his assessment. The photo is of their Tuna Tartar which was as delicious as the presentation you see. After dinner he took us back to our hotel and arranged for another day of sight seeing and town meandering.

We needed a ride to the San Jose airport for our flight to Panama. We hired Wilson. He made us a deal we couldn't refuse. He got us to the airport safely and in a timely fashion. His eagerness to practice and learn English and to help us with our Spanish, made the 2 and a half hour trip extremely enjoyable. We wish for him only the best.

If you ever come to Costa Rica and have plans to see Arenal volcano call Wilson and tell him Bob and Kryss sent you. He will take good care of you.

We arrived in Panama City after an uneventful flight. At our hotel, the Magnolia Inn, we learned that the Indigenous people of Panama have gone on strike against the government. Travel has been disrupted in certain areas. Water and eletricity in other areas. Our hotel is 2 blocks from the Panamanian Presidential palace so we may demonstrations Panamanian style. So the
adventure continues......
