Via Con Dios

A travel blog entry by foltafamily


"Via con Dios", is what I told David and his guide as they were about to zip line across a 500-foot ririver gorge. Lori and I went first.

A travel blog entry by lightnerjohnson

After getting settled we headed for the beach and relished the cool breezes and refreshing water. The girls headed into the surf right away, and after a few times of getting pounded by the waves and saltwater up their nose, they quickly became more comfortable being in the ocean. The beach was huge (3 miles long), wide and almost empty. Pretty shells and coral soon filled our pockets, and the body ...
