    Night Beach

    March 5 in Costa Rica ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C

    Of course there had to be clouds☁️ Because on the other night the sky was clear but i was too lazy to get my camera.. well, I had to pay the price🤦🏻‍♀️
    It was still amazing how many million stars we saw, even the milky way, but the clouds took her away really fast.
    I love night skys, they’re so calming, i’ve even saw 2 shootingstars ⭐️💫

    Playa Grande en Cahuita

    March 5 in Costa Rica ⋅ ☀️ 27 °C

    For the daily dose of salt water we went 🔙 to beach at our B&B. It’s a very long one and we could walk into the sea for a long time and the water was on shoulder-level.
    There were a lot of huge waves! It was so fun to jump through the salty wet, even tough the wave drowned us nearly with their strength🌊😉

    We were in there at least 1 hour but now i’m so exhausted, think i’m getting old😂

    Caribbean Coast

    March 5 in Costa Rica ⋅ ☀️ 27 °C

    We went to Manzanillo today. In the rainforest we even found a waterfall and on our way there saw many different and colorful flowers 🌺🌸🌼

    Then the beach called us and of course we had to follow the sound of the waves🌊

    On the way back we drove through Puerto Viejo, a very lively and colorful village with a lot of cyclists and surfer.🏄‍♂️
    There is also a nice black sand beach! The sand is so unbelievably soft and it feels so funny to walk in it. The green trees and palms make such a cool contrast! 🌴(pictures are still on camera)

    We stopped at Cahuita, a cute village too! Sadly we were a bit late to visit the national park, i think an hour is not enough to explore this piece of earth, maybe next time😣

    Caribbean Coconut

    March 4 in Costa Rica ⋅ ☀️ 26 °C

    When we finally passed the nearly infinite construction work at the highway with a lot of cars and terribly slow trucks we checked in at this amazing B&B near Cahuita. It’s very close to the beach but still in the jungle.🌴
    We chilled in the pool and the hammock.

    For diner we had traditional caribbean dishes with a spicy coconut sauce, fish/ chicken and rice😍😍

    on the road 3.0

    March 4 in Costa Rica ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    Today we’re driving to the caribbean coast, so exchanging the oceans🌊
    But before that trip we had to stop at a doctors office to make a Covid-19 test. WTF, it was the worst feeling i’ve ever had🤭😧
    Hopefully we’re both negative or we have little problem cause we can’t take our flight home and go into quarantine! Soo fingers crossed🤞🏼

    After that terrible experience we finally hit the
    road again and of course we took the first opportunity to escape the regular highway and explore the country on the less busy roads.
    We drove through cute villages and the rainforest! Saw many rivers, about a million fruit stands, cows and lovely orange flowers on the trees wich made a perfect contrast to the green.

    Suddenly a black cloud came up in the sky, it rained for about 2 minutes but at least it cooled everything a bit down and the car’s clean(er) again🌧

    Cot near Cartago

    March 3 in Costa Rica ⋅ ⛅ 12 °C

    After the adventurous journey we chilled a bit at our cute bungalow in the garden. Up here (ca. 1800 müM) it’s nearly cold compared to the coast or the humid rainforests. We drove up the hill to explore the region of the volcano Irazú (we couldn’t visit the volcano cause we haven’t a reservation😒) but it’s still a wonderful landscape. Everything is so intensive green and reminded me of Switzerland in the alps! There were even the black- white Holsteiner „swiss cows“. 🐄
    Then we observed a beautiful sunset and ate diner with a nice view over Cartago.
    When the sun‘s gone it’s dark almost immediately and it got really fresh up there, we had to wear sweaters😅
    On the way back to the hotel we had a great view over the lights of the city 🌃

    on the road 2.0

    March 3 in Costa Rica ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    Today we’re driving away from the pacific coast into the middle our stop will be near Cartago.
    Because we think that highways are boring we took a route through the mountains😂
    The „streets“ were sometimes soo terrible or even just had sand and so many steep curves and narrow bridges, it was a pure adventure! There were sometimes cows and horses on the road and we were alone on the road for long periods of time. 🐄

    We drove relatively high in the mountains, we passed many fields, plantations, colorful flowers, rivers and some houses lost in the middle of nowhere🌸🌼
    (luckily we had enough gas)

    But the view was beautiful cause we saw over all the green of the fields and trees and the ocean on the horizon.
    Up there the air was so fresh and it was way colder than on sealevel, we were so happy that we could cool down a bit☃️

    Monkey and Food Spam.

    March 2 in Costa Rica ⋅ 🌙 27 °C

    For two night we stayed at a Hostel outside of Quepos next to the National Park Manuel Antonio. We had maybe 1 Minute way to the entrance. Cute tiny village, very touristic, but sometimes it has to be like this😝
    Soo tonight we went to the beach to watch the sunset and then go to eat diner. But on our shortcut to the beach we’ve met about 20 squirell monkeys!
    THEY WERE SO CUTE😍 just jumping around, playing with each other and the cute noises the make! We had the to our own, no other people just us who could appreciate this precious moment! 🐒

    After this spectacle and a marvelous sunset we ate at the Morpho Beach Bar. The guide of the jungle Tour recommended it to us, and THANK YOU. The food was soo delicious (exept the cilantro in the guacamole)
    David had some jumbo shrimps and freshly caught salmon with pineapple-mango sauce and i had a steak with mashed potatoes and vegetables at a red wine-pineapple sauce, just delicious! They made nice decorations with strawberries and cucumbers and even the water had a variety of fruits in it🤤

    National Park Manuel Antonio

    March 2 in Costa Rica ⋅ ☀️ 32 °C

    Today we decided to visit the National Park. At the entrance area many guides were there and blow wistles or were coming intrusive at you to sell you a guided tour and many sellers wanted to you to buy water or coconuts🙄
    Once we passed all of them we finally entered the park and we were alone on the trails most of the time.

    IT WAS SO HOT IN THERE AND SOOO HUMID we nearly melted to death🔥🥵🔥🥵🔥🥵🔥

    At the beach areas we’ve found thousands of crabs in tiny shells and a lot of iguanas and big lizards 🦀🐚🦎
    The beaches were totally amazing, the pure sand, rock formations and the colorful sea, just a dream!

    We spottet a group of capuchin monkeys, one even carrying a baby. It was so fun to watch them jump around and climbing in the trees!

    At the visitor center we granted us a ice cream!🍦

    Espadillos South Beach

    March 1 in Costa Rica ⋅ ☀️ 28 °C

    Once you pass the annoying guides/ parking dudes/ sellers, the beach is an absolute dream! 💭
    The sand‘s so fine and it has some glitter in it, the big rocks and the perfect waves🌊🏝
    At around 3pm the tides changes, the flood starts. And it stunning how the beach changes!
    Nearly half of the beach vanishes and the part next to the national park overflows the hole area, soo keep an eye on your stuff 👁😆
    And let me tell you about the perfect sunset we saw!
    The whole atmosphere is just magical! The colors and the sounds of the crickets and birds, just overwhelming✨
