Costa Rica stamp in my passport!

Note: I know the last post had a similar picture, but I forgot that I needed the picture of the passport stamp for this post… doh!

Costa Rica was amazing! My friends and I packed so much into the three days we were there, I don’t even know if or how I’ll be able to do it justice. Maybe I’ll just let the pictures do the talking and add some stories here and there.

Playa Jaco

We did SO much in the three days that it’s really difficult to pick a best part, so here are some of the highlights:

  • Canyoning/Canyoneering (video)
    I would HIGHLY recommend anyone who likes a more adventurous vacation to try this. I am pretty afraid of heights but it was so much fun to rappel down the canyon walls/waterfalls. This is something I’ll do again if I can!
  • Ziplining (video)
    I had been ziplining in Whistler, BC, previously so I jumped at the chance to go in the Costa Rican rainforest. It was a different experience, but awesome nonetheless.
  • Taxi ride from Puntarenas to Jaco
    We missed our third bus of the day by just 10 mins… but it happened to be a wonderful blessing in disguise. We met the coolest taxi driver in the world who not only drove us the hour south to Jaco for a really great price, but helped us find a better hotel as well.
  • Last night in San Jose
    One of my friends has family in Costa Rica so we spent the last night with her cousins in San Jose. They took us to a new club where we were the only tourists, giving a true taste of the local scene. I don’t speak Spanish, but it was still a lot of fun and we met some great people.

It would have been awesome to have an extra day or two… so I’ll just have to go back someday!
