Ok. Sorry for the delay. I tend to get sidetracked. You are so surprised.
So who's ready for more Costa Rica? Hopefully you said "ME!", because if not, you'll be sorely disappointed in this post.
Day 5 ended with driving back down that CRAZY bumpy road, if you can even call it a road, from Monteverde, to my bro's house. The next morning, we said goodbye to my mom at the airport. Goodbye mom! :*(
Then we were on the road for a 2-3 hour drive (I think) to the beautiful beach of Manuel Antonio! On the way we stopped off at a "crocodile bridge" to see the crocs. They were pretty fascinating. Although though they didn't move. Even when we spat on them.
Also on the drive down, we were lucky enough to see four Scarlet Macaws at Jaco Beach. Which, we were told, is one of the only places you can see these birds in the wild in Costa Rica.
Freaking cool, huh? I love how rainbow-y they are.
Ok, so we finally arrived at our hotel, which was basically right on the beach. Awesome.
And, because we were basically on the beach, we did not delay in changing into our swimwear and heading right out to the ocean for some boogie boarding and sand-playing.
Since I'm only mildly obsessed with the beach, I will post just a few pictures.
Or a whole bunch of them.
The rest of that day was spent hanging out, spending money at the local shops, and swimming in the hotel pool. Then we took a few pictures of the gorgeous sunset.
To end the night, we watched the girls so that Brandon and Jen could go on a romantic moonlit beach walk. Then they did the same for us. It was great- I mean, how often is it that you get to take a moonlight stroll with your significant other on a warm beach in Costa Rica? Not very often, I tell you. Not very often.
Next up: Day 7. More beach and some crazy wild monkeys.
Did I mention that I love the beach?...
