11 Sep Costa Rica – August 2015
Well what can I say – I loved it! The people, the wildlife, the rainforest, the beaches – everything was wonderful.
For me the highlight was the wildlife. It’s one of the most biodiverse places on the planet and we felt like we had a front row seat. Our villa overlooked the Manual Antonio National Park and had two troops of monkeys, one capuchin the other squirrel monkeys, that would pass through the gardens every day. There were even hummingbirds and sloths in the garden, although the scorpion that visited one day was a little less popular. The people are wonderful and it’s clear why ‘Pura Vida’ is the national saying! While we were there we tried our hand at surfing and zip-wiring, but generally just took in the relaxing surroundings and enjoyed ourselves. We also ventured out on a couple of boats, one in the Pacific where we had a bit of a snorkle and the other on the mangroves nearby where we saw all sorts or animals including Jesus Christ lizards or wizards as my nephew calls them!
I can’t wait to go back!!!
