Wow, Costa Rica is a beautiful place! We had such a wonderful time. We did a lot of laying by the pool and relaxing at the beach. Elio had so much fun! He also celebrated his first birthday while we were there.
One of the highlights of our trip was a river ride through the jungle. We were able to see monkey's, birds and crocodiles. The crocs were pretty cool. The driver of the boat went right up to a crocodile nest and picked up a baby. Everyone that wanted to was able to touch it or hold it. It was really cool to see one up close.
After the boat ride we had dinner with the locals. They didn't have power and made us dinner over an open fire. The food was great, and the experience was even better. The people in Costa Rica were so friendly and nice.
