Costa Rica Top Five

1. Riding the Zipline in Montezuma. What a great feeling to fly through the air! A must do event! This one was great with the longest cable running about 1,000 feet.

2. Snorkelling trip to Isla de Tortuga. A quick boat ride from Tambor, this trip had us spotting leatherback turtles and humpback whales while en route. Once there, you can snorkel off a tiny piece of land (hardly even an island). The kids saw a puffer fish and sting rays. The crew bbq'd us a fabulous mahi mahi lunch. Other highlights were the peccary named Philomena and baby howler monkey Kimba!

3. The Finca Rosa Blanca Country Inn. This amazing boutique hotel is set among the hills of Santa Barbara de Heredia just north of San Jose. The most unique place I have seen, filled with great art and all sorts of nooks and crannies to sit and read or just enjoy the scenery.

4. La Paz Waterfalls and Gardens. Butterflys, frogs, snakes, orchids, waterfalls!! Enjoy the stunning scenery as you walk down pathways and up and down stairs. Tons to see in the Cloud Forest!

5. The people! There was not a local Costa Rican that did not treat us well. What a super bunch of people.
