Hola! I am in the gorgeous country of Costa Rica!! It's been just wonderful. I am sick of course (bad cough and congestion), but bad can it be in Costa Rica!
We are here with my dad, his girlfriend, my best cousin friend and her husband. They went on trips yesterday and today. Me and the hubby have just been taking it easy (being sick and poor college know how it is!). Enjoying the ocean, ocean views (the above is from our balcony)and getting rest for the body and soul...that's what I'm talking about! We did find some locals to take us to a good spot for snorkling then fishing for several hours though. And, right around the resort there are "wild" iguanas

monkeys (howler...boy, are they weird sounding for such a little thing!),

a long nosed cousin of the racoon, etc.

Oh, and snorkleing around here has the most amazing fish...and even a small jelly fish..ouch!

The only thing is that everything is expensive and it's mostly American stuff. So, if you come to Playa Hermosa, Playa de Cocoa or Playa Panama anytime soon be aware that you have to look for culture. I guess that's true of any vacation spot, right?

Anyway, ifI have your address, I'll try to send out a post card soon so look out for that in the next couple weeks!
Take care, and I hope y'all are having a great week. I miss reading everyone's posts and I'll try to catch up next week when I'm back in TX.

Hasta luego!
