Last weekend we took a trip Costa Rica for a friend's bachelorette. It was a short trip but a lot of fun.
We went ATVing which is a big departure for me. I am not big on the outdoors like at all. I am not that adventurous. My idea of adventure is looking for parking at the Galleria on a Saturday afternoon. You want to make it extra adventurous? Go the week before Christmas. Needless to say after some careful consideration I decided to partake in the activity as everyone else was doing it. So . . .. I couldn't do it. The look on my face must have been enough as one of the guides told me I could ride with one of them. I assured him I was fine but as I made my way onto the road I realized hey, I am not too sure about this and I have two kids at home and I just don't really want to die today. It sounds dramatic I know but I am so happy I didn't do it. The route included busy streets and going up a mountain. No thanks. The other ladies did it and I was so proud of them but I didn't need anymore accolades on my resume. I'm going to be alright if I am not an expert ATVer. Despite not riding on my own the tour was a lot of fun. It was still a bit stressful but not as much as if I would have been driving. We stopped for lunch and it was delicious and then we went to a waterfall. It was a good day. Our guides Johnny and Ramiro from AXR Jaco were really good, it was a good time.
We celebrated by relaxing, being adventurous and going out. We stayed at the Crocs Resort and Casino. It was nice and new. The spa is cool, I had a relaxing massage. The hotel breakfast was so good and it was included with our stay and it wasn't a continental breakfast, it was a full blown breakfast. Costa Rica was pretty chill and I actually really enjoyed my time there. I usually don't like being outdoors as much but the weather was so nice and the locals were very attentive. I was pleasantly surprised. Those crocs were no joke though. We stopped by the crocodile bridge over Rio Tarcoles on our way to Jaco. I was scared.
Ok, that's it.
'til we meet again Costa Rica.
