Costa Rica 2010

I went to Costa Rica from January 16th – January 23rd.

I spent a day in San Jose, and then 5 days in a small house by Quepos, San Jose.  The house is a half an hour drive from Quepos, tucked away in the rain forest.

The highlights of the trip:

  • The trails, waterfalls, and swimming opportunities at the house we stayed at.  I could have spent another couple of days relaxing at the house.
  • Relaxing on the beach of Manuel Antonio, and surfing on the beach.
  • The zipline tour in Quepos.  I cannot recommend this enough.  I paid 50 bucks for a 2 hour tour that was well worth it.  The tour guides were fantastic, and I felt extremely safe.  It was great!  If you’ll be in Quepos, you should definitely go for a canopy tour.
  • The national park in Manuel Antonio.
    • Having a monkey try to steal our lunch.
    • Seeing a sloth, relaxing in the sun.
    • Watching a turtle lay eggs.
    • The snorkeling wasn’t great – I barely saw any fish.  I wouldn’t recommend renting snorkeling equipment.

If I did it again, I would fly from San Jose to Quepos instead of driving 3 hours from San Jose to Quepos.  Other than that, I wouldn’t have changed a thing.  It was great!
