The wildlife is calling…

My husband, our 18-year-old daughter, and I were looking forward to an adventure-filled vacation in Costa Rica. The diversity and wildlife of the country was what we were keen to see the most. For 15 days, we traveled to Arenal, Puerto Viejo de Limon, Manuel Antonio, and Montezuma — literally coast to coast!

Our favorite part of the trip…

In Arenal, we saw a lot of animals: toucans, hummingbirds, howler monkeys and amazing views of the volcano. However, the jaguar rescue center and the chocolate museum were my daughter’s favorites and mine too. I thoroughly recommend visiting for an amazing chance to see wildlife up-close and support excellent work in rescuing and rehabilitating local wildlife. Worth the trip for the baby sloths alone — and so much more.

Relaxing times at Montezuma…

Montezuma was beautiful and noticeably less crowded than some other destinations. The beach was superb and our hotel ten minutes drive up the mountains was lovely, very relaxing and full of wildlife — we saw howler monkeys up-close, coatis, toucans, and parakeets, among other things. Our trip was very enjoyable; the scenery is superb, the beaches beautiful and unspoiled, the wildlife abundant and incredibly diverse, and the people of Costa Rica are friendly and very hospitable.
