Travel Blogs from Jaco
We last left off last in the city and then went to stay with friends at Finca Saramandai again. We had a great time visiting with Bridget, Fred, Mya and Max. We went to a water type park with lots of different pools and diving boards, although the water was pretty chilly but the kids didn't mind. This park, called "the eye of the water" or …
