Some people reveal the sex of their baby…I reveal our first destination for 2015! I’m scheduling this post for when we are away in Bhutan and Thailand, as I have a feeling that the internet may be a bit slow for blogging in Bhutan. But I could be wrong…in which case, you might get Bhutan updates, too.You may remember the destination triage post from a few months ago…the first reveal is….
Vamos a Costa Rica! January 2015.
Costa Rica was an easy choice for us to start off our year. It’s relatively easy and close to get to (about 6 hours with one stop), no significant time is lost due to time changes, and it’s relatively inexpensive–even when we (well…I) don’t really try to travel inexpensively. Now, I can hear people out there groaning already, but we opted for the Caribbean coast rather than Arenal or Guanacaste. I know, I know. I am aware how popular those places are and how much there is to see. But…
We are interested in seeing cool tropical wildlife and hopefully finding some decent snorkeling around Cahuita. We realize snorkeling can be hit or miss, but that’s ok. We know it’s not like Belize or other reefs, but it is supposed to be decent around the National Park. I also reallyreallyreally want to see a sloth; DH really wants to see tree frogs and other jungle fun. We didn’t want a resort–we wanted a more glamp-like environment. We might do some rafting, but are going to focus on wildlife on land and in the ocean. Have I mentioned I think zip-lines are borrrinnngggg? There I said it. I’d much rather watch animals.
