30 Bananas a Day!

811 Family goes to Costa Rica: thread of pictures, movies, and stories: Final pics are up

A considerable amount of time and effort has gone into the planning of this trip and I'd like to share what I hope to be a life changing experience with all of you.

I have two main goals with this thread:

1. I'd like to let everyone know that I plan to make this thread a reflection of reality updating my thoughts and feelings as they happen to provide both excitement and anticipation. This allows for the possibility that things do not go as planed or may be disappointing to give a more true sense of the experience being had. I hope to have other members of the family contribute their thoughts and feelings to strengthen the overall perspective.

2. At the end of the trip I'd like have a separate section to give what I hope to be valuable feedback, reporting on each destination and giving my recommendations about a particular place we stayed or part of the country.

When will I post?

I will do my best to write things down daily and they will get posted whenever possible. It is my hope that most days there will be a post.

I'd caution 2 things:
1. The internet is unstable in many of the somewhat remote places we are going.
2. Tiskita has no internet, phone, etc. and I will not be posting during the time I am there.

What follows below?

This first section serves as the outline for this thread. Where are we staying, for how long, where are these places located.

1. Turtle Beach Lodge in the Tortuguero area
2. Tiskita Lodge on the south pacific coast near Panama (not Tiskita Jungle Lodge)
3. Finca Luna Nueva near the La Fortuna/Arenal volcano area
4. Finca de Vida close to San Isidro.
5. San Jose the capital city

The trip is from January 5th to January 17th.

Looking forward to your pictures and experiences in Costa Rica!

I have great memories from the time I spent in Costa Rica! :)

I also have great memories from the time I spent in Panama as well.

We're leaving for Panama Friday. When do you all leave for Costa Rica?

Have a great time!

Love, Karmyn

What didn't you like about Costa Rica to choose to go back to Panama instead?
Karmyn is in Panama now.
Thanks this I am aware of by my question posed.

Must be some reasons why Panama was a better choice.
If you sign up for Karmyn's newsletter/email list, she'll send you an email comparing the 2 countries:
I had the good sense in high school that French would end up being the more useful language. I guess I chose the wrong diet.
Okay, Bump for new information.
Do you have a blog, get one on blogger
I do not have a blog atm. Thank you for this info. I have website space for that if I choose to go that route. For now I think I'm going to keep it here.
Dude, there is a wave called Pavones near Tiskita that is out of this world, though strangely still... in this world. LOL! I'm a little jealous.
I'll get pictures for the house :D
