Costa Rica 2022, Day 11

Monday, February 21 Instead of going out for breakfast today, we ordered in ahead of time. Two women brought us an amazing meal and set it up for us. It included eggs, pancakes, yogurt, granola, hash browns and back bacon. There was so much food we ended up saving a lot of it for theContinue reading “Costa Rica 2022, Day 11”

Costa Rica 2022, Day 10

Sunday, February 20 This morning we headed to a very new location for us – the cloud forest. It would take us about three and a half hours to drive to Monteverde. The roads were fine until we started to head up into the mountains. Here they were not well paved – there were manyContinue reading “Costa Rica 2022, Day 10”

Costa Rica 2022, Day 9

Saturday, February 19 Today was our last full day at Tango Mar. I was feeling energetic so I went for a run on the beach before breakfast.

Costa Rica 2022, Day 8

Friday, February 18 After our usual breakfast buffet, we went to the front desk to meet our guide for the snorkelling tour to Tortuga Island. We had a couple and their 5 year old daughter joining us.

Costa Rica 2022, Day 7

Thursday, February 17 Another picture perfect day! February is the middle of Costa Rica’s dry season which lines up perfectly with the weather we want to escape from in Canada, which is usually the coldest month of the year. This morning we headed out to explore the north side of the beach. There was supposedContinue reading “Costa Rica 2022, Day 7”

Costa Rica 2022, Day 6

Wednesday, February 16 I was feeling much better today so we headed over for breakfast. The restaurant, like most in Costa Rica, was open air.

She was pretty goodContinue reading “Costa Rica 2022, Day 6”

Costa Rica 2022, Day 4

Monday, February 14: Valentine’s Day! Today would be our most action packed day ever! We booked the tour ahead of time through our hotel, Hacienda Guachipelin. They run several exciting tours which are very close to or on their property. We chose the “One Day Pass” which included a variety of activities. After breakfast weContinue reading “Costa Rica 2022, Day 4”

Costa Rica 2022, Day 2

Saturday, February 12 The nightly rate at Guachipelin included breakfast so we headed over to the restaurant when it opened at 6:30. We were up at 5:30 because the time there is one hour behind ours at home. They had a nice buffet set up with glass in front of the food and servers readyContinue reading “Costa Rica 2022, Day 2”

Costa Rica 2022, Day 3

Sunday, February 13 Today was another day of exploring on our own. We were very happy to have a car because we had three different places to visit. Our first hike was a short one on the resort property before we went for breakfast. We found a trail right across the road from where weContinue reading “Costa Rica 2022, Day 3”
