Costa Rica: trip overview and favorite spots.

Our five weeks in Costa Rica passed like a whirlwind.

We swam every day to the point of my ears having swimmers ear. 🌊

We saw crocodiles, monkeys, sloths, poisonous snakes, and many other animals. πŸ’

We drank, and danced, and ate, and laughed with so many incredible people. πŸ’ƒ

We explored and disappeared into the wilderness. 🌴
