I'll be back
I'll be back
I visited Mark's condo in September 2010.
It was my first visit to Costa Rica. Everyone I have talked to about Costa Rica has said they have had a positive experiance so, it was my turn to discover for myself.
The condo was clean and came with everything you my need. There is not a 7-11 down the block so have your snacks and supplies there with you. You are pretty much in the middle of the jungle with a awsome view of the ocean. The time of the year I was there is the end of the rainy season. We did not have any more rain then you would expect in the tropics. In the evenings this it made for some awsome lightning shows ! This place is alive, its not a condo most tourist stay at. They stay in town where you hear cars and nightclubs. If you want this its not that far away and can be fun. Where the condo is, you wake up to the sound of nature. One day I heard a comotion outside and go out to see at least 300 parrots in the tree right there and watched them for half an hour.
This was my exploritory trip. I went swimming, surfing, ate at some really cool restruants, took a drive down the coast. We did a group trip to Nicaragua, there was 6 of us on this adventure. I would recomend this trip, it was fun and informitive about the region and history where we were. I was expecting a south american type country. To my suprise it hade a real Caribbean look and feel to it. It is clean, safe, (just don't be dumb) the people are beautiful. We we coming back from suffing Playa Grande one day and there was a local kid hitching a ride. He had missed his bus and was headed to work in Tamarindo. I knew just by the vibe of the area this was fine. He was a nice guy and welcomed us. I went for, I think 8 days. Next time I know I'll need at least 2 weeks. Now I know why Mark goes for months at a time. We had a great time and I wasn't ready to leave when the time came to go.
I could go on for ever. If you're thinking about going, Go ! I'll be back.... Bart
