Here’s a brief recap and some pix from our amazing trip! We highly recommend it!
Jack & Allison
We went to Costa Rica to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary and it was better than our honeymoon! From our guide, who picked us up at the airport and provided loads of information about the region and country, to Gilberto, who brought out two lounge chairs and an umbrella to the beach every morning for us, the people were friendly and truly grateful that we chose to visit their country.
The Westin resort was beautiful with exotic flora and interesting animals roaming about, including iguanas, raccoons, their long-snouted cousins (coatimundis), and friendly birds who visited us on our patio. The food was wonderful, with a variety of restaurants included; make reservations to get the best times. I especially loved having fresh ceviche daily and the best red snapper dish at the French restaurant I’ve ever had. (The house wine was not good! I purchased a couple of bottles from the available list and they were very expensive!)
We took two excursions: one on ATVs with a guide who took us around the area to the various beaches and to shop in the small town, and the other to zip-line up a bumpy mountain road. Both experiences were not to be missed!
Though it was rainy season, it only rained a little each day, and we were told that provided so much greenery.
A wonderful trip, country and people! Highly recommended!
