Critters, Adventures, and Beaches

Costa Rica. We started our vacation at Rio Perdido (rain forest with natural hot springs) and finished at the Gulf of Papagayo (Pacific Ocean side).

Our adventures included numerous hikes, zip lining over the canyons and waterfalls, river tubing (nothing like the water parks here, by the way…the required helmet was my first clue!) and of course time on the beach to recover :)

SO much wildlife: monkeys (including howler monkeys that sound like gorillas!), pelicans, iguanas, geckos, hermit crabs, raccoons, coatis (one of our regular pool visitors), and even whales!

One morning, we were kayaking on the amazingly clear water-  looking for sea turtles.  But instead, a whale slowly surfaced about 20 feet in front of us…and then her baby.

An incredible week of experiences.
