Hola! I am back from the beautiful, Guanacaste region of Costa Rica with a fading tan and new love for this country. Despite traveling during the rainy "low" season, we had fabulous, sunny weather most of the time. Of course I would be a little dissapointed if we did not see any rain in the rain forest, so I was happy to have a little downpour during our trek into the jungle for horseback riding and a thrilling ( = scary) zip line canopy tour. If you are thinking of traveling to this part of the world, go now before the Disney Cruise Line pulls in!
Surfers on Playa Langosta, just south of Tamarindo.
Swinging from the trees in Rincon de la Vieja national park. The first platform seems harmlessly low to the ground, but before you know it, you are above the tree tops.
In the midst of this river sits the world's most relaxing hot springs.

An elusive howler monkey. So cute!
