Ding ding ding for AliyaP for correctly guessing Costa Rica right off the bat. Impressive. (You didn't leave your email so please contact me for your prize.)
So now you know where I've been, you know what that means - trip recap!
This trip was one of those last minute things that got planned very spontaneously. Costa Rica is quite large and has lots on offer but we were only going for a weekend so we picked a location at random. (More random than intended as I wanted to stay near the volcano area but due to a mix up on my part, I booked a hotel by the same name about 2 hours away.)
It pretty much rained non stop when we were there. It went from drizzle to torrential downpours. That did put a bit of a damper on our fun but there is no question Costa Rica is a beautiful place regardless of weather.
We were there on Valentines weekend so the hotel put this little surprise on the rug.
Sadly this was the only view of the volcano we got on our trip. I was hoping for glowing red flows of lava but I just got a cloudy mountain. Oh well - a reason to return.
I think you can tell the theme of the trip was green. Its a very lush landscape. And despite the wet weather, it was a lot warmer than NYC so that was a nice break from bleak winter we've been having here.
