#4: Get another stamp in my passport.

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.

Thursday:

Early morning bus to La Fortuna

View from our cabin… Volcan Arenal

The first waterfall while canyoning… can’t even see the bottom!

Papaya

Bananas

Friday:

Lake Arenal

I don’t usually take pictures of my food, but this was the best tipico meal of the entire trip

THE bus

Costa Rican church

Saturday:

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!
