The Sunday Traveler ~ Costa Rica

May of this year found the Sunday Traveler hitching a ride with my friend to Costa Rica for his daughter’s destination wedding. I’d never been to this part of the world, so how could I pass up this opportunity?

The wedding guests all stayed at an Air B&B selected by the bride to be, and this provided a fantastic setting for families and friends to relax and get to know each other for a couple of days prior to the wedding. The home was a huge tri-level set on the edge of the jungle with a couple of swimming pools. We were in Quepos, and did spend one day hiking in the jungle of Manuel Antonio National Park that was bordered on one end by the ocean, your prize for hiking through the hot and humid trails of the park.

Back at the house everyone melted into the pool. The days were filled with talk, laughter and food. Lots of food, prepared by a chef that was on hand with the Air B&B services. This was a rather hedonistic getaway for me. The rains held off until the afternoon of the wedding, but it all added to the story that this wedding day will have for the newly married couple. We had seen monkeys swinging by in the trees surrounding our property, but one decided to make a personal appearance right as the wedding ceremony began; he was quickly shooed away by the officiant.

We returned to San Jose from Quepos, about three hours away, for an overnight there prior to our morning flight home. A chance for one more sunset.

A very short trip of three days, but worth every bit of time we had there to see another little slice of the world previously unknown to me.

Until next time, my friends. and as they say in Costa Rica, Pura Vida!

    Hopefully it’s good luck to have a monkey show up at your wedding. I love the sunset photo.
