Good morning everyone. Here is the final part of my Andaz Papagayo Resort review. Part 1 had photos of the resort, part 2 had photos of my room, and today’s post will have photos of the food, menus, and a MONKEY?! Yes, believe it or not, one of the local monkeys jumped on my table as I was eating lunch and ran off with my tortillas! I didn’t think he was going to grab my tortillas, so I slowly reached into my pocket to take out my phone, and as I was pressing the photo button, he grabbed my tortillas and ran.
With that said, I really liked the food at the resort, but it is expensive. In this post, I will show you my 2 breakfast meals and 2 lunch meals. We had late breakfasts and late lunches so we wouldn’t be hungry for dinner. I also included photos of my receipts that show how expensive each item was. As of February 7, the exchange rate is $1 US Dollar = ~570 Costa Rican Dollars.
Good morning everyone, I hope you enjoyed Part 1 of my Andaz Papagayo Resort review where I shared photos of the beautiful resort. After checking into the resort, we walked to our room which was only a 5 minute walk away. If your room is farther away, you can take the complimentary golf cart shuttle to your room. The exterior of the room had a large, thick wooden door with a key car reader above the handle. Let’s check out the inside of the room…
Good morning everyone. Yesterday, I wrote this post: PSA: Get Yellow Fever Vaccine Before Visiting Nicaragua (& Some Other Central / South American Countries). At the end of that post, I mentioned that I had an amazing flight from San Jose, Costa Rica (SJO) to Liberia, Costa Rica (LIR) on 14 seat Cessna aircraft. Here is my flight experience with lots of photos and a short video of my takeoff and landing. I purchased the flight the night before (at the Managua, Nicaragua (MGA) airport) and the flight time was 50 minutes, with ~35 minutes of that in-flight.
If you have any plans to visit the rainforest or any other tropical region of Central / South America, I highly recommend getting your Yellow Fever Vaccine (YFV). The vaccine is good for your health and you can avoid the uncomfortable situation I recently had where I had to sleep in the Managua, Nicaragua (MGA) airport because I did not have a Yellow Fever Vaccine.
Let me back up a little bit…
2 weeks ago, Jim and I flew from San Salvador, El Salvador (SAL) to Managua, Nicaragua (MGA). When we got off the plane, there were 3 doctors who were meeting with passengers and reviewing their passport and custom form. The line was moving pretty quickly until I handed over my passport and custom form to one of the doctors. She flipped through my passport a few times, carefully looking at passport stamps, then back to my custom form, and then back to my passport. I had no idea what she was looking for, I assumed she was looking for my El Salvador exit stamp, but that was not the case.
