San Jose, Costa Rica
Our tour guide, Choo Choo (sp?) was great! He was very friendly and informative. The coffe tour was great and we enjoyed being able to ake in the beautiful scenery of the plantation, learn the entire process that goes in to producing coffee, and the time in the shop at the end. Buy your coffee here! First, you get to buy coffee from the place where you actually saw the process first hand know that it's considered one of the best in Costa Rica, and second because, at $8/bag (when we were there) it's also the best deal you'll find. Poas Volcano was amazingly beautiful. We took a bit of a trek to the main crater, but it was too foggy to see anything. We took another trail that led us to a second crater, which was just beautiful. Choo Choo suggested heading back to the main crater before departing, and I'm glad he did because, by the time we got back, the fog had lifted and seeing the crater was well worth the wait and the hike. We stopped at roadside store where we got to sample "Locarno strawberries", strawberry wine, and a Vsta Rican wine, then headed to La Paz Waterfall Gardens. Lunch there was delicious - you ave to try their fried plantains - so good. The fauna and flora at the Gardens is so beautiful. There are tons of hummingbirds and the have a bit of a wildlife zoo going on with a butterfly area, frogs, monkeys, a tiger, birds, and other animals. At the end of the walk through there are paths to two waterfalls, one of which you can get close enough to feel the mist. I highly recommend this tour!

Great tour - it was a lot of fun! Everyone we met at the Adventure Park was exceptionally friendly, including our tour guide, Daniel (who was also the driver or our transportation back and forth to our hotel), and everyone on his team. I turned out to be more apprehensive of jumping off and trusting the lines would hold than I thought I would be. Daniel and his team were so good about working with me and quelling my fears. This really was an fun tour with beautiful view of the waterfalls and landscape of the area. Lunch back at the resort was a delicious Costa Rica style lunch. On the drive to and from the Adventure Park, Daniel provided so much information on Costa Rica. I know he had to leave quite early in the morning to pick us up for the tour and then got home late. I can very much appreciate how challenging that must be, but Daniel was upbeat and smiling the entire time.
