LIfe in the jungle

A travel blog entry by gillie.bowen


... the city was fairly straightforward but we immediately experienced the same problems – no road signs. We therefore saw a great deal of Mexico that tourists don’t normally see; those back streets are not a pretty sight! However, we eventually dumped the car at the airport and grabbed a taxi to Suzie and Sergio Shapiro’s stunning house in a gated part of the wealthy suburbs. Sergio built this house and the gorgeous one we stayed at ...

We have arrived in Heaven

Veronica helped us reserve some activities during our stay. We are going to the bridge at the cloud village, ATVing, ziplining and going for a horse ride. We also scheduled some days for rest ...

Life's One Helluva Garden - Dig It!

A travel blog entry by jord-travers


... of growth at the Blue Spirit is something I am very grateful for and now feel a strong need to give back. Being spoilt implies being given luxuries for the sake of indulgence.

The blessings I have received will not go to waste.

42-43: Drama! Catalina Island trip & sharks

A travel blog entry by blondesontour


... waiting for the boat to come back and get us I saw a cool partly yellow puffer fish (probably a juvenile) and free dived down to get a photo of it. As I got down two white tip reef sharks rushed out from underneath the rock shelf and shot at me, made me jump out of my skin because I was totally not expecting that! I rushed to the surface and was like "SHARKS, SHARKS!" very excitedly. Thankfully they hadn't just buggered off but kept swimming back to us so we got to see ...

Where God rinsed his paintbrush

A travel blog entry by crfunapalooza


... Yes, but we have just a few more minutes to walk before we get to the waterfall." What?! This blue delightful place wasn't the end of the tour? I'm loving life.

We hiked to a few more waterfalls--even our kids didn't complain, so you know it was awesome and beautiful.

Did I mention there is a section where the mineral deposits are so strong that there is a natural waterslide? Evidently it is both fun and scary. Karen and I did not try it, on account of ...

    Muriel and Marcel, the sweetest Swiss couple you´ll ever meet, run a fantastic hotel in Nosara. We stayed in the new ´Rancho´ where we cooked in for every meal, because there are not many budget options in Nosara. The higher price tag was worth it!
