... but no colorful fish....have to go to the Carribean side of Costa Rica. We did see some rushes of fish that seemed to race over the water and fly through the air...but no one got a picture. Also everyone was thrilled when brown pelicans flew over....just like home,,,ha! John explored over near the rocks and got pictures of a moray eel. When it was time to leave it was low tide so we can walk back on a path that runs along in the jungle but just inside from ...

Roosters in the morning

A travel blog entry by jakedavis

If I'm in Costa Rica, I figured that I might as well endure the extra hours to experience a more pristine beach. If I'm taking a beach trip, I might as well do it right!
I found two cheap hostels online for $12 a night (not too shabby). I was conflicted between Vista Serena ...

Quite An Adventurous Bunch

A travel blog entry by jord-travers


... movement made the skills and tests very difficult. We took this as an opportunity to really practice being underwater and finding our confidence.

Our first tank of air would be spent on a regular Boat Dive to rid of any cobwebs and a Buoyancy Peak-Performance Dive to learn the ins and outs of controlling buoyancy. This was relatively stress-less and good to get a feel for the difficult conditions. The Underwater Navigation Dive was next and with me not having ...
