Costa Rica in 15 days

So we were pumped, another day on the road and a new border to cross. We knew it was going to be a bit different crossing into Costa Rica as we had heard they are a lot stricter with their visa, sometimes even making you show proof of onward travel and bank balances. We got to the border and filled out our forms and the woman behind the counter blurted out a heap of spanish at me. I couldn't tell what she was asking or saying but on the second or third go realised she was asking ...

Wildlife Galore!

... iguanas, several pairs of toucans that kept flying back and forth affording us a delightful show! Other colorful birds too, I just don't know their name. So no tacky music, just the sound of the ocean from across the river, the occasional boat motoring down the river, the calls of the birds, and the palm trees blowing in the breeze. HEAVEN!

These included the two girls we had seen yesterday at Britt. All ...

In 60 days the eggs will hatch, and less than 1% of the baby turtles make it back to the ocean – most are eaten by raccoons that dig up their ...

Day 3: San Juan to Tortuguero

Today we had an early wake-up call at 5:45 am. We took our bags down to the coach and headed off to Tortuguero. We drove approximately an hour and a half before stopping for breakfast. We stopped at a resort that served very authentic Costa Rican cuisine. Breakfast consisted of beans and rice, sliced franks, and eggs in a tomato sauce. Now, anyone who knows me, knows that I wouldn't eat a bite of that. Is it too much to ask for a little biscuits and gravy with ...
