... someone from her church knew someone who died zip-lining in Costa Rica. Her timing was consistently impeccable like that the entire way through the tour. It was so beautiful!!! My first mistake was asking Josh and the other guide Rene if they knew Bambi, because I put him down as my emergency contact. That gave them total permission to mess around with me and tell me all the things I needed to go to go TWICE as fast... It also gave them permission ...
... nice crafts.
a wonderful trip, I got to see the Pacific Ocean, spend some time on the country’s
famous beaches, and hang out with “the girls.” I can see myself coming back

That afternoon we got the boat back to where the bus was waiting to take us back to San Jose. We stayed at the Barcelo Palacio, a nice 5* hotel. It was great to get a full night's sleep. The next morning we went to the gym and played tennis before leaving Costa Rica.
Costa Rica is brilliant. We highly recommend it and will possibly return in future. Pura Vida as the locals ...
