Finally we were there!
I'm an avid wildlife viewer so i couldn't wait to arrive. I heard and read so much good things about Costa Rica.
We stayed at Ciudad Quesada, where a family of friends live there since a couple of months.

Because we had to come back to home, almost most of the times, we limited the visits to Northwest of Costa Rica, except, the time we stayed on a beach in Nicoya.

Here's a small sample of the places we visited and the things we saw.

Enjoy!

Chemicals mixing in river?
What's this about the chemicals mixing in the river to form the color? Do you mean that people put dyes in the river? I hope not!

Hi, about the chemicals, they are naturally present in the water, from all the volcanic activity. One stream has a lot of copper mineral, that shows when it mixes with the other one. It\s nice but i wouldn't drink it!
