Costa Rica: Truly a Natural Beauty

"There are no foreign lands. It is the traveller only who is foreign."

~ Robert Louis Stevenson

I visited Costa Rica two times about five years ago,  It's definitely a place I would love to return to.  I dug up these old photos that I took with a very inexpensive point and shoot as I'm planning to take my husband there for his birthday this fall.  I fell in love with the nature and the untouched beauty of the country!


Cr33We stayed at the Los suenos Marriott on the west coast.  It was a two hour drive from the nearest airport on very mountainous and curvy roads.  It was an enjoyable trip given the lush, green, and gorgeous scenery we saw on the drive.

Cr5432We went on a jungle tour where the animals were everywhere!  We watched this sloth cross the road VERY slowly!

These pale-faced monkeys were everywhere.  It was so amusing watching them play in the trees.  They wanted food so most would walk right up to you,

Cr8This one wanted the banana I was holding very badly!  Of course I had to reward him for striking this pose for me :)

Cr2AND how does one ignore a face like this?

Cr4The jungle like most of the country was very undisturbed by humans.  I hope it remains that way.

We were brought to a lovely lagoon/swimming area after the hike through the jungle.  The water was a great temperature and was so refreshing!Furn (1 of 1)-5Crr

 The Los Suenos Marriott hotel is nearby a town named Jaco which is very popular for surfers.  The waves were much larger than they appear in my photo.  Hopefully I will capture more of the wave action during my next trip!
