Nosara

Yesterday we left Monteverde and made our way to Nosara. We had been told that we would have to take 4 different buses to get to our destination, so we were ready for a long, tiring day. However, after taking the first bus and getting off on the Panamerican highway, we met a guy who was going to Nicoya (the town just before Nosara) and who told us that a direct bus would pass within the next half hour. And sure enough, ten minutes later we were getting on a direct bus to Nosara. It pays off to speak the language! :D This piece of... [Lire la suite]

Canopy in Monteverde

So today's big activity of the day was Canopy. We don't usually do these gringo style activities during the trip, but this time we thought "what the heck, this looks quite fun".

In Monteverde

Ha! I know it looked like it, but this blog isn't dead! (yet!)So, since I last wrote... I took 2 flights to get to San Jose in Costa Rica, where I expected to spend 1 or 2 days alone before my boyfriend arrived from Panama. But there he was at the airport, waiting for me when I arrived! that was a very nice suprise. Let's be honest, we didn't do anything in San Jose. My boyfriend was a bit ill and I wasn't very motivated by the big city of San Jose. So we spent two days lazing about in our hostel. And to be fair, it was pouring... [Lire la suite]
