Costa Rica - Part 5


We got up to have an early breakfast before heading out on the catamaran tour. We were picked up on time and went down the road to pick up more people as we headed towards the marina.

Front and centre, you can see our catamaran heading towards us.

Breathtaking views.

Bob and some clown fish.

The tour was excellent and we would recommend it to anyone. We had a great day, chasing dolphins and booby birds, cruising the coast, snorkeling, drinks and lunch and more drinks on board and sailing back to the marina.

After we returned to the hotel, we changed and caught the shuttle down to the village. We wandered around the shops, managed to find a great bar for happy hour. Then we went to the beach to catch sunset.

We had our first sleep-in then coffee on our patio before breakfast. After breakfast we walked the trail loop before going to the swimming pool. We were picked up at 1:30 for the trip back to San Jose. It went a little slower than anticipated because the mountains were pretty much fogged in.

We got back to the hotel at 6 pm. Once we got checked in, we wandered around and found a restaurant where we had some of the best shrimp and a couple of bottles of wine. After dinner, we went back to the hotel to make a phone call to the family. It was another early night as we were to be picked up at 3:15 a.m. for our 6:30 flight home.


We were up early, ready for the trip home. We flew from San Jose to San Salvador, then on to Belize City. It was a long day as we got home just after 6:30 pm.


  1. sounds like a wonderful honeymoon! Enjoyed the blog.

  2. Looks like a fun trip. I'm looking forward to our first long trek - after we finish construction. I'm envious.
