We had an exchange with a local dance school. It was SO cool! The little girls were so cute!!! It was good to have some hugs.
Zip lining and wildlife!

Sloth hunting (and birds and snakes)
We basically travelled a ton and we have finally arrived at our hotel. I was feeling very sick and just down overall and they served my comfort food at lunch.. mashed potatoes! So good. Our hotel is SO cute!! I love it!

Here are some random breakfasts, lunches, dinners and deserts we've had in the last day.

Waterfalls and iguanas.. plus a little bit of motion sickness.
Stopped for lunch at a local restaurant. We even got to tour the kitchen to see how they make our food. The fresh strawberry smoothie was DELICIOUS!
On our way to Poas Volcano!
We toured a coffee plantation this morning. The tour guides were very funny and entertaining. I bought some dark chocolate from the store.
Breakfast! They eat rice and beans for every meal.. and the pineapple was to die for. 😍

Dinner was delicious! I am forcing myself to try new things and actually immerse myself in being in Costa Rica. I even spoke a little Spanish tonight. Tomorrow we take on the coffee plantations and Arenal Volcano! Off to bed for now... ¡Hasta mañana!
Just lounging around the pool today.. good to start off with a relaxed day. Ready to jump into it early tomorrow!
We stopped at a local "Fresh Market" after leaving the airport. There were tons of cool (and different) foods! I chose some banana chips and lemonade. On our ride from the store to our hotel, there were several people standing in the roads selling fresh fruit, gelato, flowers, etc. This is going to be an unforgettable experience!
The beauty of this world astounds me! I slept for about an hour. This flight has been amazing...experiencing a little bit of turbulence towards the end. We should be landing in Costa Rica in about 30 minutes.
