|The Adventures of Costa Rica!|
This year we are taking students to the tropical paradise of Costa Rica. It is truly a stunning country with a lot to see. The tropical plants are amazing as are the vistas! I went here back in '96 with a bunch of friends for a month exploring the different varieties of plants that grow in this amazing and diverse country!
|Braulio-Carillo National Park...the Cloud Forest|
Cloud forests are amazing....cold....wet....lush....and very mysterious. Make sure you wear your rain gear as you hike through the forest looking at bromeliads, tillandsia, ferns....
The Rain Forest is dark...make sure you bring proper foot gear or it will be torture!! Always watch where you are grabbing and always look above....and don't speak if you want to see the local wildlife:)
Poas Volcano out of San Jose
The Pacuare River
Fresh water meets the ocean...be aware of sharks that come in at night.
One big tropical garden
Big time tree huggers:)
Some friends on this isolated journey near the Panama Costa Rica border
Time to feed the horses
San Jose, CR
Riding thru coffee fields....yum:)
Seal up everything well before heading into the rain forest or you'll have mushy food or ants EVERYWHERE!!
During a time when I could eat anything and get away with it:(
NEVER forget your mosquito net while exploring!! And bring water!
Last night with friends before heading back to the US. I highly recommend Costa Rica to everyone...it's safe and has a million kinds of tropical gardens everywhere. Dream. Explore. Live.
Note the ancient use of my camera back in the 90's....pictures are not as clear as today's cameras. I look forward to the return with my new and improved camera in March:)
