Default A week in Costa Rica

Wife and I arrived in Costa Rica last Wednesday to celebrate her 2nd - 20th Birthday. We selected Secrets Papagayo in northern Guancaste. It’s been fantastic. We’ve done all the things. 14 hour tour to Arenal Volcano and hot springs, sunset catamaran and snorkeling ( well I snorkeled, she was sea sick). 6 hr off shore where we landed 5 Mahi-mahi, 4 black tuna, and the grand finale, a 7’ sailfish. And finally today we toured the area around Rincon La Vieja and spent the day in a mix of very cold waterfall and very hot springs.

This is my new favorite place to vacation. It’s not a inexpensive as other Latin American spots, but it’s much cleaner and safer. I also did not expect it to get dark at 6pm, but the sun is up by 0530

Glad you both had a great time. Your wife is in excellent shape. We stayed 10 days for our honey moon. like you had a great time. It was very affordable in the early 2000's.

It's on my bucket list! I have a buddy who's been going there 2-3 times a year for the past several years, makes it sound amazing.
