I've dreamed of visiting Costa Rica for several years now, and that dream was finally realized when I made it there on an Adventure Life Journey. The trip from Missoula, Montana to San Jose, Costa Rica is a long one, so I decided to overnight in Miami on the way down. I found my Taca Airlines flight from Miami to San Jose to be quite comfortable, and could hardly contain myself when I realized the plane was actually landing in Costa Rica - I finally made it!
After making it through customs in just a couple of minutes, I quickly found my driver waiting to take me to Hotel Le Bergerac. The 40-minute transfer through San Jose traffic was a great chance for me to begin putting my out-of-practice Spanish skills back to work. I discovered that I'm a bit rusty, but still able to communicate on a basic level. The hotel was just as beautiful as I imagined it, and a tour courtesy of Federico allowed me to see several of the quaint hotel's unique and comfortable rooms.
