  1. Hi Joanna, we lived in Costa Rica for over a year so we were lucky to be able to see lots of the country. But for a short trip you did the right thing – choosing one fabulous spot and just enjoying it and seeing it properly.

    This is one area we didn’t explore but it looks gorgeous here so we will have to go back;)

    Love the pic of you on the flying fox! Wheeeeeeeeeeee:)

    I nearly had a heart attack when I saw that spider picture. Shudder. Looks like a beautiful place, though. Ziplining in the jungle, flying like Superman, that’s the way to do it!

  4. Agree on the spider sentiments by Gray… that beast makes me want to load a gun.

    One of my very few regrets about my 2.5 months in Costa Rica was that I didn’t leave the beach for the mountains…i think i will making another trip down in the next year and will not miss Monteverde this time.

  5. Wow, what a beautiful tarantula. I thought I had a pretty one in Manuel Antonio, but this one is amazing.

      It really was beautiful. I know a lot of people are afraid of tarantulas, but I don’t think they’re out to hurt anyone. And they really are stunning.
