Blanka at the hotel Ameicano is a nazi psycho, dont go there unless you want to pay top dollar for everthing you do, and use. there are way cheaper places to stay, that are pretty cool. maybe just go there to meet up with a crew. I have no idea why that hotel is so big with boaters (being the cheap dirtbags we are). There is a guy down there named Diego....he's the shit. he can take you wherever you need to go, so my advise is to head up to terrialba by bus, and find him. his number is 506-363-4539 If you really want to go somewhere pimp and new, and have some dough to spend, go to Rafiki Safari Lodge...its on the Rio Saverge. This place can hook you up with some horses and get you to some of the cool stuff we did in C.O.H actually, almost the whole costa seg is from around there. There is picture perfect low volume creeking, and big, big water as well. I suggest hitting up the trib. to the saverge by horse (tell them you want the same run we did filming...trey and friends that is) class IV+ with a sweet lunch spot half way down...you cant beat it! There are long slides to thirty footers all walkable. Note: be off the creeks by 3 or 4 unless you want to get flooded out and have an epic. one more thing...you have to bag this 1st D we missed out on. it was too low when we were there. it looks really cool, with a perfect 45 footer at the end.. Diego knows it...its the one on private property...a cow farm. tell him to take you there if there is high water.
have fun, dont get eaten by a crocodile or go to Jaco and get herpes!
