Where we're going we don't need roads!
Costa Rica Trip: Island Time

Again delighted to not have had to plan all the little details of navigating our way to destinations. We were picked up at 7am by a bus with others in it – cool we aren't alone. On our way to the Pacuare River and lodge.

The first leg of the trip was the 2.5 hour van ride. We stopped in the mountain area for another traditional breakfast. Gallo pinto, juevos, and this really yummy cheese with fresh fruit. There was a chill in the air and the fog quickly settled in.

about 45 minutes later we were dropped off and told to walk down the hill, a steep hill. At the bottom, the boats were waiting. Our things were put into waterproof bags and we donned our safety gear. The group separated into two boats and we were on our way. Cold water but super fun. A nice stop at a small waterfall. This was just a teaser though.

We arrived at the Pacuare River lodge in the early afternoon with hot chocolate and the manager awaiting us.

This place was amazing. It was a gorgeous camp for adults.

An afternoon hike into the property and another waterfall - very cold! Happy hour with all our new friends and an amazing gourmet 3-course dinner. What!
