Looking for a way to top all of the adventures we had in Arenal and Manuel Antonio, we decided to bungee jump off the old bridge over the Colorado river. It was definitely one of the highlights of the trip and a I even gave a shout out on video to the World champion Baltimore Raven's before I jumped. www.bungee.co.cr/
We have been busy relaxing so I had to back log some entries! Today we woke up early and were picked up by a taxi to go on a catamaran. We were with two women from Ontario, Canada in the taxi shuttle. The driver did not speak much English but was very nice and stopped at a spot down the road where the famous airplane hotel is to show us the squirrel (titi) monkeys. Titi are very tiny little brownish red monkeys. They are so small that the glide effortlessly ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Bougainvillea Santo Domingo de Heredia
We were surprised at the beauty of the gardens that surrounded the hotel. I got lost walking through the 10 acres with beautiful trees and flowers and so many different kinds of plants. There were nice sitting areas and fountains and I wish we had been able to stay longer to enjoy it and relax in the gardens. The room was very clean and modern and the staff were so pleasant and helpful. There was a concierge desk which really came in handy for us the last 2 days to plan additional tours.
