    Manuel Antonio Nationalpark

    December 31, 2017 in Costa Rica

    Der berühmteste Park in Costa Rica und wohl auch bei weitem der touristischste. Da Silvester war und somit noch mehr Einheimische den Park besuchen, waren wir pünktlich um 07:00 zur Öffnung dort und hatten zu Anfang noch ein wenig unsere Ruhe. Um 12:00 Uhr sah es dann ein wenig anders aus (siehe Bild unten)
    Wenn man bei den anderen Parks still sein sollte um die Tiere zu sehen, ist es hier das pure Gegenteil. Die Weisskopfäffchen und die Waschbären sind die Menschen gewohnt und versuchen bei jeder Gelegenheit etwas abzustauben. Teils relativ skrupellos; auch wir mussten am Strand unser Hab und Gut vor einem heranstürmenden Äffchen schützen. Ebenfalls war es lustig zu beobachten wie die Waschbärenbande versuchte essen aus den Rucksäcken zu klauen.
    Die Strände im Park sind wunderschön und laden zum Baden ein. Bei der Hitze gings dann auch im Halbstundentakt ins Wasser. Zur Mittagszeit wurde es dann aber mit den Besuchern ein wenig "too much".

    Manuel Antonio

    June 30, 2017 in Costa Rica

    Another day, another bus. Or two in fact. 10 hours of travelling later I arrived in Manuel Antonio which is on the Pacific coast, the other side of Costa Rica. It sure does rain a lot in CR and arriving in Manuel Antonio was no exception!

    I was lucky to meet a nice English couple on my journey over, Georgia and Dan, and we got to Selina's hostel together. We had a 10 person room to ourselves which was luxury. The first night I think we all went to bed before 9 o'clock, just worn out from the day's travel.

    The next day we went down to the beach in the morning because it was sunny. It didn't take too long for the overcast to come though, and after we headed back and chilled. I went on another run - this time shorter than the last but there were lots of hills and some very yappy dogs.

    The day after we went to Parque Nacional Manuel Antonio which was the reason for coming all the way down here. We were so lucky as we saw lots of monkeys, some sloths, snakes, frogs, raccoons, humming birds and loads of other wildlife! On the way out we saw a giant sloth with its baby in a tree, really close up. It was a really hot day and finally - sun - so we went back to the pool and sunbathed. In the evening we had some drinks and played cards. I had a bit too much to drink and ended up puking on my bed (oops - but I blame the disgusting mixer we were drinking).

    The next day I got up real early to be on the bus for San Jose. So excited to see my mum and sister and travel with them for two weeks!

    Costa Rica, Parque Manuel Antonio

    January 7 in Costa Rica

    Der Plan war den Regen nun endlich hinter uns zu lassen, aber leider war es in Manuel Antonio auch noch etwas verregnet. Aber nicht mehr so kühl, 27°C haben uns begrüßt (und die Klamotten konnten immer noch nicht trocknen).

    Bei einer kleinen Wanderung im Nationalpark konnten wir nochmal wirklich viele Tier beobachten. Die Affen waren ganz schön kess ;-) Es war unfassbar schwül, alles war nass und klebte, also sind wir zum Strand um dort in den nicht ganz so erfrischenden Pazifik zu springen. Es war ein tolles Plätzchen, Bier&Burger gab es fussläufig, also blieben wir bis Sonnenuntergang. Der Bus zum Hostel glich dann leider wieder einer überhitzten Sardinenbüchse...Read more

    Manuel Antonio National Park

    March 29, 2017 in Costa Rica

    (2/3) On the way back from the view point, we came by Playa Las Gemelas, where we only stayed for a few minutes, then we went back to the main beaches, Playa Manuel Antonio and Playa Espadilla Sur. This last one is the one I -again- lost my heart to. There were close to no people there and it was just so beautiful. <3

    The hubs went snorkeling in the pacific bath tub at Playa Manuel Antonio and I just went for a quick swim, before we had to leave the park....Read more

    Manuel Antonio National Park

    March 29, 2017 in Costa Rica

    (3/3) .. On the way out we were lucky to see some more animals: raccoons, more monkeys and -yay- more sloths. <3

    Around sunset we went to Playa Espadilla Norte again. It was already our last night "on the road" and we were definitely not ready to say goodbye yet. :/

    Playa Espadilla Norte, Manuel Antonio

    March 30, 2017 in Costa Rica

    On our last day, after a fantastic breakfast and before our transfer back to San Jose, and with only 30 minutes to spare, we went to the beach one last time. It was just too nice to not go again. I got a fresh coconut and we just took in the view. #vitaminsea :)

    On our way to San Jose, around Jaco, we were so very lucky, to see two red Aras flying in the air - yay! No picture proof though, the moment went by way too quickly. :(Read more
