Costa Rica (October 8 - 13, 1998)

Depending on one's interests, there are hundreds of ways to see Costa Rica. The challenge was to choose an itinerary that would provide our eight-person group with a glimpse of the Central American nation's beauty during a brief five-day visit. We chose a private, escorted tour that provided a balance of fixed itinerary with time for individual exploration.

After a half day getting acclimated in the capital of San Jose, the group headed north to Poas Volcano, Tabacon Hot Springs and Arenal Volcano. At 2:30 a.m, the clouds cleared and we could see from our balconies the lava flowing down the sides of Arenal. What a magnificent sight!

The following day, we returned to San Jose for a 15-minute flight to Quepos and Manuel Antonio, along the gorgeous Pacific Coast.

The beaches at Manuel Antonio were fantastic: clean, white, and with water temperatures around 80 degrees.

Though not as dense as the rainforests in the northeast and southwest corners of the country, we still saw plenty of wildlife, including three varieties of monkeys, sloths, coatimundis, iguanas, and a wide variety of birds. Manuel Antonio also serves as a point of departure for adventures, including white water rafting, sea kayaking, and sport fishing.
