I just got back from Costa Rica and I was amazed with the beauty of the place. Costa Rica may be a small country wedged between two continents, but few locales in the world are bigger on nature and adventure. Flanked by miles of wild beaches on the Pacific. Costa Rica’s interior is a lush tangle of rain forest, mist-veiled mountains, active volcanoes and habitat for some of the greatest wild life that I have seen. Within the layers of green upon green, thousands of species thrive: You will see neon-bright parrots, three-toed sloths, monkeys, peccaries, crocodiles, iguanas and frogs, just for starters. In the colors and cacophony of the tropical jungle, our senses are never so engaged.
My hotel was magnificent, the local Costa Ricans are very friendly and kind. We went in late October and it was still in the 80’ degrees but very pleasant. You need to try their Ice cream; It was just the thing to cool you down in the mid-afternoon. The hotel that we stayed in was very nice. I love the beaches with the sound of the wind blowing the wave to shore. A must do is the canopy/zip line. Gliding through the jungle on the top of the tree and seeing the monkeys up front and the birds flying through the air was just breathtaking. Another must do is the river cruise. There we saw many crocodiles, bird, iguanas, and more monkeys. The sun sets around 5:00 P.M. so you want to get an early jump on you day. I would recommend everyone that if you want adventure and enjoy Mother Nature, then this is an excellent destination to visit.
