Norwegian Ladies jumping for joy in Playa Azul
Costa Rica makes you want to jump for joy, laugh out loud, have another Imperial, put your adventurous hat on, view the spectacular scenery and wildlife, or just take a stroll on a secluded beach with someone special to you. Voted the "Happiest people on earth", CR is a great place to go to get away from Mr Grumpy. If you can't have fun here, and I mean getting your fun meter into a severe RED ZONE category, you are hopeless. Might as well stick a fork in yourself. Hang out with Scrooge. Fold your "Let's Party" card.
That's Joy(my sister-in-law) along with my brother, Steve's cocktail at Coco Loco
This photo is from a January,2014 trip that the four of us took together. We met in San Jose and rented a car. Our trip took us to Manuel Antonio, Uvita, Monteverde, and to Flamingo Beach. Steve and Joy flew home out of Liberia. We drove the car back to San Jose for our flight home. Most of our trip was centered around beach and pool time.

The roads between San Jose and Southern Coast of Costa Rica are excellent. Once you are off the highway, be prepared for an adventure. Being there in the dry season our only issues were getting use to driving on some steep/gravel roads around Uvita and going to Monteverde. We stayed at the Oxygen Jungle, a French owned hotel, in the hills above Uvita. Wish we would have stayed longer. Our room was a separate A Frame glass structure with a wood roof looking out through the trees filled with toucans. Great views of the ocean from our couch on our very private deck. Just Kris, Mark, and the butterflies. Tough choice between Infinity Pool and our deck.

Thumbs up to the Oxygen Jungle. Would return for a longer stay when visiting the southern coast. Great food with excellent service. Loved, loved, loved our room!
Thanks for visiting our site. Will continue next time with our time in Monteverde and Flamingo Beach. Happy travelling!
