Expense account: Day 1

While we have been here for a couple of weeks, the real budget part of the trip did not start until today since we were traveling with others. We’ll try to keep an accurate accounting of all our expenses and publish them here each day.

We saved a little money this morning since a hearty traditional Costa Rican breakfast was included in the cost of last night’s room.

ITEM                                                                                                           COST
Last minute items, including some
tea, some hot sauce,  and fruit for the
bus ride…………………………………………………………………………………$   8.77

2 bus tickets to Alejuela Central
(15 min. ride) to catch bus to San Jose……………………………………..$   1.04

2 bus tickets to San Jose (45 min.
ride) to catch bus to Liberia…………………………………………………….$   2.60

2 bus tickets to Liberia (5
hour ride)……………………………………………………………………………..$  14.00

Bottle of Coke at a rest stop…………………………………………………….$   1.90

1 night for 2 at a hostel (Hotel
Guanacaste, Liberia)……………………………………………………………..$  22.50

Dinner for 2 + 1 beer……………………………………………………………..$  12.00

Total…………………………………………………………………………………….$62.83

Tomorrow will be cheaper as there will be no cross-country traveling on the agenda.
