After eight days of intense and fabulous jungle and cloud forest edventures we are taking it easy.
The Pacific Ocean at our hotel on the northwest coast of Costa Rica is perfect. No cold shock as you reach THAT depth entering the ocean, gentle swells and no rocks – just smooth sand. Aaaahhhh.
Marika is growing fins as she rarely leaves the pool. Will is a regular in the local beach volleyball scene – when we check in with him sometimes it looks like he is playing with Costa Rica’s national team – big muscular athletic types and Will holds his own with his serve.
The swimming pools are endless and replete with fountains and waterfalls. We asked for a mountain facing room and have been rewarded with howler monkey sightings from our room.
Lots and lots and lots of swimming.
To wrap up our trip, tomorrow Will and I go on a looong day trip to Nicaragua, and Kim and Marika will have a big girls day together. Kim heads to Nicaragua Monday and I will enjoy a day with the kids, including a boat and snorkel expedition. (Marika perhaps wisely chose to avoid the
2.5 hour bus ride there, and back again).
