Destination… Costa Rica
I Love Costa Rica for so many reasons – dubbed “the poor man’s Maui” While RICH in Culture, Coffee, Surf, Lush Rainforests, Volcanos, Sea Turtles, Monkeys and fabulous Resorts; I beg the differ…..
I chose to do Costa Rica BIG so naturally I went with Abercrombie and Kent This tour company is tops! With Abercrombie and Kent you can travel anywhere in the world; solo, couples or with families, they keep groups small, hire a driver, a guide a naturalists and all 5 star. I brought my two daughters on this trip – Costa Rica is safe but with so much to cover with The Atlantic and The Pacific sides – we needed to be whisked efficiently! With my highlights you can contour your own trip…
First off, you’ll land in San Jose, Costa Rica – Stay at Real Intercontinental Hotel, so you can relax and get your bearings – white water rafting is a must – the warmest water in the world to raft so between the whites make sure you jump out and float a bit, choose either Pejibaye or Pecuare Rivers (depending on skill) – NEXT Stay at Tortuga Lodge (get there by boat at the Cano Blanco dock) a gorgeous resort nestled along the Tropical Rainforest where you’ll spot Sloths, Monkeys, Toucans, Morpho Butterflies – the beauty of Costa Rica, later in the middle of the night you’ll take a guide and watch the Green Sea Turtles some up to 300 pounds lay 80-100 of their eggs.
Take a coffee tour at Monteverde you’ll remember this coffee for a lifetime – I still can taste that coffee! If you have time – check out the Rainmaker Aerial Walkway have a beer at El Avion Restaurant -
