A Four Week Visit to Costa Rica
21 February 2018 | Golfito, Costa Rica
Our four weeks included excursions to Rincon de la Vieja (a volcano), Arenal Observatory (a volcano and bird hotspot), La Mansion on Lake Arenal, Tango Mar Resort, Toucanet Lodge, Hotel Carara, and Manuel Antonio National Park. We were able to record 160 bird species that we saw, most with the help of guides. What a thrill for us! We'll be checking out of Costa Rica on Thursday, Feb 22. But we are happy to hear that the Port Captain, Customs, Immigration, and Bank are reasonably close together for checking out. The Fish Hook Marina is our favorite of the four marinas in this small town. It's new. The services include electricity, water, trash, laundry, restrooms/showers, GREAT WiFi, and a restaurant/sports bar. The town has a Mega Grocery Store, and a fuel dock that we will take advantage of before leaving. Did I say the staff speaks English! Now we are starting to focus on Panama, and where we want to go to before preparing for the Canal Transit.
