Faye and I flew to Costa Rica shortly after Christmas on an overnight flight, landing in San Jose on Dec 29th. We rang in the new year standing in the Pacific Ocean, watching fireworks in the distance and on the shore. From the south Pacific coast, we rode up to the cloud forest in Monteverde and spent the short day crossing many suspension bridges. From there we took a boat across the man made Lake Arenal and spent a lazy day reading books in the rain in La Fortuna. Finally, we rented a car and road tripped down the Caribbean coast to Puerto Viejo where we took a couple of beach days and toured a Chocolate Museum, Sloth Sanctuary. We ended the trip with a grueling drive over the mountains in a foggy dark to spend the night in San Jose on a coffee ranch. We took surprisingly few photos, but I'm happy to have captured some of the wildlife if not any of the people.
