So remember last week when I was whining because we didn’t know where we wanted to go, but there was snow in November and just–yuck!
After looking into various options, you already know that we are going to Florida for winter break. With such short notice, everything else was out of reach, but the exploration led us to decide on our spring break trip: Costa Rica here we come! Now I am really excited! I am lucky enough to have worked with someone who now lives there, and although we aren’t best buddies, he graciously gave us advice and offered his guest room to boot.
We will spend our first night on El Toledo Coffee Farm outside San Jose and wake up to breakfast (with, I’m assuming, excellent coffee!) and a tour. Then we head to the Manuel Antonio National Park area, where we will stay in the friend-recommended Hotel Costa Verde. How can you resist a hotel whose slogan is “still more monkeys than people” and has transformed an airplane fuselage into rooms? We splurged on one night in the cockpit cabin. We haven’t decided exactly what we will be doing yet, that’s for future blog posts, but we have already started making a long list, which I am sure Steven will turn into a spreadsheet (I have already started…perhaps I will allow you to see it for the next post!).
Next we will head to see my friend, who lives in the Arenal area, for a couple of nights. It is so gracious of him and his partner to offer, we didn’t want to take advantage by staying more than that. Then, it’s back to San Jose for a night at an airport motel before we fly Southwest via Atlanta to get back home to reality.
