Well today it's time to face reality - the holiday in Costa Rica has come to an end. Both Michael and I had the best time, we really didn't want to come home. We stayed at the Hotel Punta Islita in the Nicoya area of Guanacaste, and I can not recommend it highly enough (thanks to Yvonne for recommending it to us). The setting, the rooms, the amazing staff, I loved every single minute.
While the trip started on shaky ground (Delta staff with attitude and arriving in Costa Rica when our luggage still hadn't left Atlanta) it certainly got better. We booked a deluxe room yet we were upgraded and had our own private terrace complete with a spa. That made up for the day we spent in the same clothes we arrived in and in bathing suits purchased from the hotel gift shop (I will spare you those photo's, my bather bottoms were a little cheeky - literally - for my liking and Michael looked like a twelve year old in his. We were quite the pair).
The resort was very quiet given that they are in the middle of their wet season, but apart from some rain in the middle of the night and a very light shower while we were zip-lining, it didn't seem very wet to us. We spent our days moving from the beach to the pool and back again. Drinking beer and cocktails, and eating delicious seafood. We worked that off climbing up and down the hill to our room and walking around the point at low tide.
It was such a great trip. Here are some of my favourite photos...
Ah the memories, now if only I didn't have to come back to reality.
