Hostel El Tucan
Tony, the owner, is a fast talking salesman who is not above recommending substandard tours and over charging for services. He highly recommended a morning wildlife tour for $30.00 per person that turned out to be nothing more than walking around the local residential area in the rain looking at birds in people's front yards. The tour was poorly planned to say the least. Tony also charged us $22.00 per person and $20.00 per person for three other residents for "jeep, boat, jeep" transportation to La Fortuna. It was not until we reached La Fortuna that we found out the correct price was 12.50 per person. Besides Tony,s dishonesty the hostel is noisy and the showers below average. I do not recommend staying at this hostel.
