Finally Here~

semi-overcast 26 °C

The first of the three regions I'm travelling to is South America and I finally arrived at my first destination..... COSTA RICA! After spending $243, travelling 3722 km and exactly 7 hours from the Toronto Pearson to the Costa Rica Liberia airport with a 1 hr and 10 minute stop in Miami I was exhausted. Luckily there is only a small time difference (CET - 2 hours behind EST) and it was already night time so I got a good nights rest for the exciting 5 days to come.

One of my favourite places to visit here was the Tenorio Volcano National Park where there are trails, geysers, springs and obviously the volcano.

This is the Rio Celeste (literally meaning sky blue river) at the Tenorio Park.
In one of the rivers I even went river rafting, it was awesome!!

Another activity I enjoyed was the " safari float tour" at the Corobici River. It was surrounded by a lush jungle and wildlife. This was an excellent way of experiencing eco tourism as the guide on the raft provided information on the different plants and animals we saw and even history of the island! I spotted monkeys and iguanas all over the place!!!

I also went on the cultural tour of the town Liberia, it was great! I have to get ready for my next flight now.

(You can't see me, but I'm in the boat furthest away)
