Blogs from Isla Tortuga, Puntarenas, Costa Rica, Central America Caribbean


Viaje turistico de un dia hasta Isla Tortuga con Celine y mis amigos americanos. Fuimos alli en barco, hemos hecho snorkling y comido pescado en la playa. Muy bonito. Lugar precioso... Una pena que no hemos podido ver a ballenas o delfines, pero los pescaditos eran bien lindos...... read more

While yesterday's entry had slight undertones of loneliness and boredom, today's entry should strongly convey just the opposite--if I can finish it all, that is. I am exhausted! Today was amazing. I took 156 pictures... and that says something because I'm normally terrible at taking my camera out. I've decided just to throw the whole batch up on flickr so you can take a look if you are interested. There has been no editing or anything and some are doubles. I have to say I'm fairly impressed with their quality, though. My new camera is pretty decent. Thanks for the good advice, Grayson! You can see the pictures at Oh man am I tired. I don't even know where to begin. So much happened today, and actually quite a number of neat things happened... read more

This week's blog update will be split into a couple of different entries so that each spot on our 4-day tour of the southern Nicoya peninsula gets its due. Before we left on Thursday morning, the boys enjoyed being on vacation with Steve as their school celebrated the nation's Independence Day. This mostly involved playing catch in the yard and going out on errands, while Nancy went into the clinic every morning. She and Christian (the Costa Rican doc) really seem to click in their approach to medicine. The big news on the clinic front was heavy flooding in the area, which left about 2 inches of water on the clinic floor - and finally forced the clinic to close to patients. Fortunately, there were about 10 volunteers - so the cleanup went pretty well. One ... read more

We just got done with one of the great trips of all time! We left for Isla Tortuga at 615 in the morning on Sunday. We first stoped for breakfast in a Town called San Ramon where we had a typical Costa Rican breakfast of Gallo Pinto (rice and black beans) along with fruit, eggs, and juice. At San Ramon we saw a Tucan and also a Butterfly garden. San Ramon was about an hour from the cost. We arrived at Puntoarenas around 900 and left on a huge tamaran boat. The ride was about 1 and half hours and when we arrived at the island we swam and had a great lunch. It seemed like we just got done winning a reward chalenge on Survior because it was an isolated island with no hotels, ... read more
