In February of 2013, I traveled to the adventure country of Costa Rica. It was a fantastic activity-filled 10 day trip. We started in the Capitol, San Jose before heading to Arenal Volcano. The Hotel Nayara has to be one of my all time favorite hotels. It was so natural including an outdoor shower, hammock and spa. the Tropical forests are full of monkeys, birds, frogs and other critters. I loved the butterfly farm too. It was on to the beautiful Pacific coast to stay in Guanacaste and then Manuel Antonio. We ziplined, rode bicycles, hiked and took a canopy tour. More monkeys and birds. Unfortunately, I did not see a sloth even though I was on the look out for one.
