We left La Fortuna around 12:00PM and headed toward San Jose for our last night together as a group. It took about 3 hours to get to San Jose, I slept most of the way. My first impression of San Jose was that it was a big dirty city. The entire time we were there people kept telling us to be careful and to watch our belongings. They also told us not to walk around at night and that it would be a good idea to take a taxi. I feel safer already.
After we dropped our things off at the hotel, a few of us went out on an excursion through the town. We walked over to the Mercado Nacional de Artesania y Pintura and did a bit of shopping. There were so many cool arts and crafts at this place.
We all walked over to a really nice restaurant near our hotel for our goodbye dinner. I had a blast on the tour and was going to miss all the people that I've gotten to know. I don't know how much of the culture I actually absorbed from each of the countries, but I had a lot of fun. It was kind of like being on a cruise and stopping in each city to do activities, my only job was to follow the leader and have fun. I think I've seen enough volcanoes to last me a lifetime, surprisingly they were each very different experiences.
