To be honest, I didn’t know what to expect when we landed in Liberia all those days ago.
Costa Rica wasn’t on my short list of places to go — Iceland and Andorra were ahead of it — and neither of us spoke any Spanish.
I was too busy to do much research on the country — save for pick up a few phrases like “No hablo español” and “¿Dónde está el baño?” — and we didn’t prepare much for our first trip to Central America.
So I was a bit, well, worried.
Turns out, not knowing much — meaning, not having any expectations — worked out. We could learn about Costa Rica as we experienced it, open to what it had to offer. We had no preconceived ideas, no false hopes.
So we weren’t disappointed.
Here’s how we spent our last day in Costa Rica:

Great trip! Love the pics. How would you rate the place compared to say going to Fiji or other places you’ve been?
Thank you for the virtual trip! I felt like I was right there with both of you!
Happy Aloha Friday!
Nice! I’m surprised Costa Rica wasn’t on your short list, since you are a surfer! Speaking of surfing….South Africa is big on that. Is that on your list?
YES! Let’s go to South Africa! Then Mongolia! Then Bribane!
Whoa just missed the earthquake yeah?
Sure did. Just by a few days, too! Scary!
