A Costa Rica vacation was just what this family needed.
When I traveled to Costa Rica in the fall of 2014, I made a goal to come back someday with my family. Our friends, The Fellmans, who lived there moved to Spain this July, so the goal was fast-tracked, and together we took the trip of a lifetime as soon as school got out.
The photo gallery below shows scenes from our first 2.5 days on the West Coast of Costa Rica, where we stayed in a little hotel in the tiny town of Playa Potrero – click photos to enlarge.
Our activities there included:
-floating in the pool
-long lazy meals at local restaurants
-strolling down the block to the black sand beach
-rocking in a hammock, drink in hand
-sightseeing in Tamarindo (about 20 minutes away)
-marveling at the strangeness of the “supers” – the little grocery markets where you can buy food, snacks, and phone cards
-riding in Harris’ death-defying Jeep
-attending an expat party at the top of a steep hill in the middle of nowhere
-ducking out of the torrential rain
It was a grand adventure, and despite tens of mosquito bites for one kid, we all enjoyed the vacation and I was overjoyed at fulfilling this goal for myself and my family. Read more details and tips learned the hard way in this post: Costa Rica With Kids.
I’ll be sharing our photos in several installments, because there is so much to share from our Costa Rica vacation – we spent a week in that beautiful country. More to come. Pura Vida!
