LA POSADA JUNGLE BUNGALOWS, Manuel Antonio Beach Okay, so today I am feeling nostalgic and also a need to return to the source of creating my blog. While I continue to have beautiful adventures back home in the states, I feel I must continue to pay homage to my inspiration. The beautiful country of Costa Rica presented me with many emotions-wonder, awe, fear of the unknown, inspiration and love.  It also afforded me some of the richest opportunities of my life. We made friends, saw amazing wildlife, lived simply and fully, all the while not fully comprehending the magic of … Continue reading Costa Rica Hotels

Slip Sliding Away

I always liked that song by Paul Simon. Kind of fun. I don’t think he had this guy in mind when he sang it though.. This is one of those “other” creatures I mentioned before. You know the ones that are awesomely beautiful and rare to just randomly run into, but that you certainly aren’t inclined to want to snuggle up with.

I have a healthy respect and appreciation for snakes as well as a true love of other reptilian … Continue reading Slip Sliding Away

Beach Days

At first I considered sharing my favorite days but then I realized every day was my favorite day. I hope you enjoy them. The trail that … Continue reading Beach Days

Welcome to La Posada!

They have, in fact, become like family to us. Whether staying in the bungalows as we did, or in the larger Casa or Villa, every … Continue reading Welcome to La Posada!

Photographer’s Paradise

This view is a standard at Villas El Parque and another great restaurant in Manuel Antonio called Agua Azul. Casual dining, great variety and very accommodating staff make for a fun evening and a great way to catch a sunset in Manuel Antonio. You can check out their menu at http://www.cafeaguaazul.com On our last arrival to Costa Rica we missed a turn and ended up on our way to Caldera, landing us in a very pretty bay area park that was inhabited by street vendors selling scrumptious chicharones, chicken on a stick and other little “goodies”. I wanted the chicharones … Continue reading Photographer’s Paradise
