Bienvenidos a Costa Rica
Monday, January 24, 2011
I am finally able to sit down with decent pictures and write about my adventures here in this beautifull country. Costa Rica is nothing short of amazing. The people are warm, the lush jungles and green all around are breathtaking and the remote, quiet beaches are to die for. It doesn't hurt that Michael's family here has been so welcoming and I can definitely now see why this is such a popular destination for tourists worldwide.
Our homebase is in Herredia which is near the capital of San José where we spent the first days roaming around the mercados (markets) that sell everything from handmade jewelry, leather goods, and pottery to produce and meats. The fruit here is ridiculous so I think I'll have to do a post on just that alone.
From the capital we've taken a few trips to beaches and Volcanos and have yet to see more. Up next, zip lining, the rain forest and of course more beach!
