I visited Costa Rica for attending an international workshop in the latter part of November 2006. It was a long trip for me in terms of the near two week workshop and flight hours (over twenty-hour flight from Hong Kong to San Jose !). I was rather busy during my stay and could only take pictures around the hotel and during the official weekend outings to the volcano, waterfall and national park.
Apart from the Children Museum, I did not spend much time down town due to the fact that I felt a bit unsafe over there, especially with my camera gears.
