After my trip on the Panama Canal Railway i left Panama and headed north for a 2 day visit to Costa Rica...my digs were the best of the whole trip amazing shower in room...house set above city with a view of valley/city below nice pool amazing size of meals i learned to my health's peril...also remarkably cool at night...even cold considering the time of year....as always it is the altitude...and San Jose is at elevation 1161m and the Hotel Posada Gran Canal in Santa Ana is at least 150m higher.
