Having traveled around Costa Rica for the better part of last week, I was reminded once again that much of the charm of this country is simply found in nature. After eating at numerous small, open-air restaurants or "sodas" as they are locally known, you feel revived in more ways than one. There's something to be said for fresh, clean air, untainted by the pollution of our busy world! Hearing macaws cry as they soar overhead, watching hummingbirds dance and tracing the rivers that rush by while you enjoy simple (and delicious) healthy food makes you wonder if this is how it was supposed to be.
We hiked curving mountain trails, saw majestic volcanoes, waterfalls and double rainbows, were accompanied by monkeys (not once but twice!) and marveled at the beauty of creation. The vivid greens of the jungle, the brilliant reds and oranges of tropical flowers and the deep blues of the ocean took our breath away each and every day. We're so lucky to own a home where so many people vacation and we'd love to share our paradise with you! Come get some fresh air and recharge; there's a good chance you'll fall in love with Costa Rica just as we have.
