Update congress information

Dear Congress participants,

Congress is coming up! I just wanted to inform you about some details.

When you arrive in Costa Rica. You will find several taxies outside the arrival area at the airport.

Take a taxi with an offical taxi license and agree on the price before you enter the cab. To go to Radisson, Casa Ridgeway or another hostel in downtown should be around 25 dollars.

If you arrive early and want to stay in less expensive place before transfering to Radisson you can take a look at the the alternatives below.

For example:
Hostel Pangea Barrio Amon ave 7 t3-3bis, Barrio Amon Ave 11 st 3-bis. ( 12 dollars per night).

Costa Rica Backpackers
Avenida 76 calle 21/ 23 ( 12 dollars per night).


Casa Ridgeway ( Peace Hostel)
Calle 15 ave 6 y 8
( 15 dollars per night)
Behind the Turrialba bus terminal on the westside of the Tribunales de Justicia (justice courts) of San Jose,Street 15, a dead end street, between avenues 6 and 8.

European Radisson Hotel

When you check in at Radisson remember that you mention WILPF Congress. We have booked you as a group of people. Some people arrive earlier than other people some even several days before their assigned roommate. To avoid that people will not have room mates when arriving and then have to pay for full price of a room, we have treid to arrange so people stay with eachtoher when they arrive at the same day. We hope you will all be flexible in this arrangment.

If you do not have coins to use a public phone, just dial 1110, it is a collect call, which means the receiver pay for it, which is fine. Some voice in Spanish will tell you something, just dial Adilias number, and then when something else is asked, just say your name.

See you all soon!
