Our first day in Costa Rica - what an amazing country and we've only just arrived.
Today we got our bearings around the resort. It was only 27C !
Our rooms at the resort are beautiful - more than what we ever expected. To us this is a 5* resort - it's very luxurious, the rooms are very beautiful, the grounds are so well kept.
I met up with Brian - he arranged for us to have some box lunches when we arrived late last night, very nice man. As well met with Harold - who helped with our room choices. All the people who work here are so wonderful.
It's quite the walk uphill to and from everything, lots of stairs to get to and from everything but we're loving it. I figure I can eat and drink anything I want - I'll sweat and walk it all off !
The beach is beautiful, the sand black, soft and beautiful. Lots of shells and coral on the beach. We went snorkeling today - the water was a bit chilly getting in and there were a few warm pockets but it was refreshing. All three of us got stung by jellyfish, it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be but it was still a shock. Pain diminished when I put vinegar on the spots that were sore.
Made friends with Pancho the Coati, it looks like he lost a couple of fights in his life. Also with a small cat that walked right up to Kira - she loves cats!
Tons of birds around the grounds - fair sized green parrots, I'll try to get a picture.
Enough for now, will try to attach some pictures now. Over and out for Wednesday.
Internet is on and off, lots of power bumps !
