Beautiful Costa Rica

I’ve only seen a small portion of Costa Rica so far, but already I know that it’s one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever seen. I’ve stood on the side of a mountain at 4,000 feet and looked out at the Nicoya Peninsula and the Pacific Ocean beyond. I’ve sat on the porch of a bed and breakfast in Puriscal and gazed at a blue lake, and the verdant green hillside on the other side.

I’ve walked through a rainforest and seen lush tropical flowers and the biggest ferns I’ve ever seen. I’ve watched the firey sunset from the patio of a friend’s house. And I’ve only scratched the surface of the beauty this country has to offer. For such a small country (about the size of West Virginia), it is packed with incredible things to see, do, and experience. We are returning to Costa Rica next month and can’t wait to spend a couple of days at an ecolodge. I plan to take lots of pictures, and tell you all about it!
