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”

Unfortunately the latter was the location of some illegal activity, so we were not permitted to visitContinue reading “Costa Rica 2020, Day 9”

Being long distance runners, we haveContinue reading “Costa Rica 2020, Day 8”
