The hubby and I finally sat down to look at the last half of our Costa Rica trip (from AUGUST!) and I fell in love all over again. Looking back at this trip, I think it is still one of the trips I will remember for my lifetime and it’s one I’ll always think about fondly and want to go back. Sloth hugging is probably the biggest reason why I will always remember this trip.
Here I am at the Toucan Rescue Ranch holding my favorite type of baby. I was so honored to be able to stay here and help care for some of these beautiful, gentle creatures.
Th Toucan Rescue Ranch is so magical! (Leslie, I’m already trying to figure out how to come back soon!) It is a beautiful, thoughtful and caring place and such a sanctuary for both animals and people. This is the type of place that reminds you that you need nature in your life.
We enjoyed drinks IN the pool.
ALL my boys loved the slide.
And the breakfast.
We even ordered the famous fiery banana dessert at the Rico Tico Bar at the hotel. All these happy little geckos were licking our table before the show and we couldn’t figure out why until the show started and a sweet liquor was poured ALL over the table and lit on fire….it was definitely memorable.
My guys LOVED El Avion. It’s a restaurant that has an old abandoned plane inside. We had a scrumptius meal here too.
And the train restaurant. There are so many cool restaurants in Manuel Antonio. This is what makes Costa Rica such a fun place to visit with kids.
The hubby is still dreaming about the breakfasts. We made sure we brought back pineapple and guava jam but it’s just not the same without the sunshine and beach.
And I’m just dreaming about my sloths. I love that pictures can just bring you back to the moment and I always come home wondering why we didn’t take more.
