19 Nov 2013 Grateful in Costa Rica: Our News

Central America Nov 2013From Our Latest Newsletter: PURA VIDA COSTA RICA

Our ten days in Costa Rica were filled with adventure. In Puerto Viejo, we biked to several lovely and undeveloped beaches. We loved the Red Lava tour of Arenal Volcano near La Fortuna and especially enjoyed the thermal river after dark! Traveling across Lake Arenal by boat was beautiful. The night hike with Ficus Trails in Santa Elena was incredible; we saw bioluminescent wood, three sloths, a kinkajou, stick insects, leaf insects and sleeping birds. We celebrated George’s birthday day at El Jardin at Monteverde Lodge. It was definitely the tastiest and most memorable meal of our Central American stay! Samara Beach is a lovely undeveloped beach setting and we enjoyed live music at Rancho De La Playa.

George has been growing our Instagram account. Please connect with us at:http://instagram.com/wesaidgotravel or on Instagram. You can see all the photos he has taken at that site or on our Facebook Fan page.

    Puerto Viejo is an amazing place for biking . People in PV named the bikes as “Bananas”. It is so funny.
