Costa Rica Unplugged (Until August 2016) » Review by Sahar
Wow, I had the most incredible adventure! I experienced so many things and met a bunch of cool people! I highly recommend this trip to everyone!
We saw animals everyday, even just walking down the street or on our way to restaurants. We also got to go on a boat tour and see more wildlife. We saw sloths, monkeys, turtles (got to watch them lay eggs), butterflies, hummingbirds, crocs, beavers, and very interesting birds. Be prepared to be woken up to birds every morning. We also got to see some cool volcano's, rivers, and waterfalls. The hikes were pretty cool, although I'm not much of a hiker.
The accommodations were better than I expected. Our view from La Fortuna was of the volcano! The hotel at Manuel Antonio was a block away from the beach. The pool by Tortuguero and La Fortuna were awesome. I really enjoyed Tortuguero because you had to take a water taxi everywhere. And watching turtles lay eggs at night was an incredible experience. The night at the tents were pretty interesting, no amount of zipping up will get those bugs away.
I learned a lot about the culture of Costa Rica through the chocolate and coffee tours, as well as the visit to the school (Jova and Fernando for a long time to come! I miss you already!
