Travel with me: Costa Rica, Pura Vida continued...

in #travel3 years ago

Did you really think the pura vida adventure was over??? There was a lot more action and a lot more fun... Did you know that Costa Rica translates to "The Rich Coast," and indeed this country is full of riches, a tropical zone located near the equator average temperatures between 70-80, whats not to love? Our stay at the Los Suenos Resort in the central Costa Rica on the pacific coast was an experience I will never forget. Its a 2 hour bus ride from San Jose airport but its quite the view... If the possibility arises I would love to visit again.

The Resort grounds alone are reason enough to visit...

Did this thing come straight from the Tarzan movie???

It's funny how vacation nowadays aren't so much about relaxing as they are planning your next tour and spending the day doing it...but sometimes doing tours even when your exhausted is worth it later!

As you can see I had a lot of fun!

Can you imagine we were there during the "dry" season...we were told the rapids are 10x the size during the rain season. The gopro battery died about 5 minutes into the trip so we have no good footage unfortunately..

Look at the beauty of the hills and the river, its quite possible to spot monkeys at anytime, they are quite nomadic.

After that, which took up most of the day...we went to a restaurant on the top of some hills, and let me tell you...pura vida kicks in really fast!IMG_0719.jpg

Panoramic view, hopefully it displays properly.

Later that evening I captured this photo of the moon...theres an old Romanian proverb that goes something like this...when the moons belly is down...the rain is not far behind...The Romanian translation sounds better...haha.

The next day was a breeze...relaxing at the beach eating amazing costa rican fruits...and hanging out with our iguana buddies!

Awesome travel blog! Costa Rica is an amazing country!

Thanks @romanian-abroad. It sure is. I'm surprised how many Romanians are on steemit...its awesome.

Good thing you can keep an iguana back with pineapple, if you had to use steak I think the experience would be very different.

Great pictures!

haha...I think they're so used to being fed they would probably eat steak too.

Damnn great post @alphasteem

Those action pictures are really nice and super clean! How did u manage to do that?

Thank you sir! Well the tour included the pictures during the white water rafting...so I didn't actually shoot those but I use a good camera Cannon 70D with the right lenses and some practice. (wouldn't consider myself a professional photographer by any means).

Hey girl, I'm Oatmeal Joey, and I love your photos and I love that dinosaur lizard dragon creature. Maybe I should go there. Going down a river seems scary and yet very exciting and I have yet to do that. I love forest and farm and animals and you are around very interesting things.

Hey there, Thanks...white water rafting is awesome you should try it. You won't regret it!
