The "Ticos", what the Costa Rican's call themselves are friendly people. Their national slogan is "Pura Vida" which means Pure Life. Very eco-friendly country and I'll always have fond memories.
So Mexican's would say "gracias, amigo"..Costa Rican's would say "gracias, tico"..or "thanks, friend"
Costa Rica is about the size of West Virginia with maybe 4 million people. That's a pretty small nation. We were there during their dry season, the other is all wet. I'm glad it was dry.
Did I tell you that we ate a lot of food?
Kim grouped these photos together of a few snapshots. We discovered that adding banana to a pina colada (virgin of course!) makes the best fruity frozen drink ever!
The sunshine was such a blessing. Our winter in Ohio had been brutal, frigid and snowy. So drinking a frozen colada really kept our home in our hearts.
We ate food.
I loved my manicure, and I loved the relaxing facial I received. I think it was worth every penny. My husband rolls his eyes about that. I think a round of golf costs more than a day at the spa..don't you think?
The bungalows to the left are where we stayed. The rooms where spacious and cool for the hot weather.
It was always windy. The sea breezes from the Pacific ocean sounded gale force to me. The winds whispered for me to eat more food.
We ate food, we ate LOTS of food.
The white sand beaches are in fact white sand. But it's not the smooth silky sand you would expect. Its shell sand, ground up sea shells from the ocean makes it a rough walk for newly exfoliated feet. OUCH!
No food here. Only drinks aloud. I did get a bottle of water.
|And finally, a photo of the HUGE pool. It was beautiful.|
