We returned home yesterday from our 9 day Costa Rica trip. I've always wanted to go to CR and It finally happened. We had an amazing time there filled with adventure and relaxation. First we went to Arenal Volcano and stayed there for 3 days. I used our new Canon video camera to film our whole Vlog there. Sadly when I uploaded the clips on my computer none of them showed up. Steve later realized that the memory card hadn't been formatted for the new camera so all the filming we did was a waste. Luckily My mom had filmed some clips on her camera of the Tabacon Hot springs and I had few of my intro clips on my older camera so you guys could still see how tropical and beautiful Arenal/La fortuna is. We also went to an animal Rescue center for a day to play and feed the Spider monkeys,Pythons, Macaws and Coatis etcs. Wish we had the clips to show your our amazing experience there. In arenal we stayed at the Arenal Hot springs resort and Spa. We loved it so much. Highly recommend if you ever go. Great price, wonderful service and delicious breakfast !!!
After our 3 days in Arenal we drove to Manuel Antonio for another 4 days. We stayed at a rental home called Casa Capuchin. The roads were a bit narrow and steep there. But the house had unbelievable ocean view. It was very open and modern, We felt like we were living outdoors. We had monkeys come by everyday and lots of bugs too haha. Good thing my family is used to it since we are from Nepal.
We went on a Manuel Antonio National park tour to see more animals . There was a beach inside the park that was gorgeous. People warned us that there will be raccoons and monkeys stealing things at the beach but I wasn't expecting to see an Iguana begging there too.
The Costa rican people were super nice and friendly. The typical food Casdos were similar to our country. Lots of rice,beans and meat.Can't wait to visit again soon
