We came here on a bit of a whim--we're not serious birdwatchers, which is the target audience, and we have two kids under 4--but wound up loving it. We stayed in their more budget-mnded accommodations, which are perfectly fine and very clean, but there are some more upscale-looking cabanas available as well. The staff here is extremely friendly and helpful, even by Costa Rican standards, and really made our family feel welcome. The restaurant is perhaps a little expensive for lunch (about typical for dinner), but the food is good and the buffet approach works well for a quick bite before heading back out. The grounds are lovely and attract many birds from the surrounding Parque Nacional De Los Quetzales. The lodge has its own private reserve with hiking trails through the forest. You can see an amazing variety of birds without ever leaving the property. If you have any interest in birds at all, this is a great, relaxing place to visit.

Vandaag hebben wij de hele dag ruzie met de GPS, al bij het wegrijden stuurt hij ons naar San Jose in plaats van Dominical. Maar wij zijn alert, hebben de kaart bestudeerd en meteen grijpen wij in. Toch de andere kant uit en naar 5 kilometer is een bord dat ons gelijk geeft. Lekker puh. Het is een lange toch, eerst een hele mooie weg langs de kust …
... s wife gave us a lovely home cooked lunch in the family house after our tour, and it was special to gain an insight into the local way of living - tourism does provide most jobs now but all the Costa Ricans we have met have been friendly, gentle and very patient with our embarrassing lack of Spanish, not to mention their enthusiasm about their national football sides chances against England in the World Cup. It was reassuring to see that not a ...
... abandoned on the beach. It's a good thing that Nadia and Amy have two Spanish degrees between them, as Amy had understood that Chris was so at one with nature that he considered a turtle to be his mother. Luckily Hannah was around to set things straight; Chris's mother was not a turtle, had at no point travelled by turtle, and was in fact not his actual mother.
After a delicious breakfast of banana pancakes, we ventured into the national park; ...
... on me, and someone right outside playing the guitar hahaha I am loving life right now. Feeling so thankful for being on this trip and I am very excited for the start of my full week tomorrow. Please pray for conversations that I will have tomorrow and each morning this week with students on UCR's campus. Today the pastor reminded us of how important it is to have an attitude that reflects Christ (Philippians 2:5-11), especially when you are coming to a place as ...
