Our cabaña and awesome hike to the crater lagoon

... breakfast. We always get the tipico which comes with fruit, scrambled eggs, black beans and rice (which is the best we've had yet), fried plantains and toast. Of course, it includes coffee and it's great. Another nice thing about Costa Rica is that the milk that comes with the coffee is hot. No need to ask to have the milk heated!

Life on the Green Mountain- Monteverde, Costa Rica

A travel blog entry by lightnerjohnson


... small town feel here, even in the midst of all the tourists, and we run into other families from the school at the grocery store and friends are calling to the girls as they walk down the street.
