I had a great chance to visit my friends in Costa Rica in May 2013. It was my first time and also the first time being in that part of America - Central America.
A big thanks to both of them and especially to Miguel spending the whole day with me and driving me around. My friends live in Escaz˙ close to San Jose. I enjoyed day trips in that area and like a 2 hours up to 3 hours drive outside of San Jose.

Within theatre they have a Coffee Shop. If you need to go the restroom, just ask your waiter for a bill (they gave us a bill from another customer as we did not finish our cofee and desserts) to present to the security in order to use the restrooms within theatre. You have to be a customer of the coffee shop in order to use the restrooms.
