Today, we spent a lot of time exploring San José. I will let the pictures tell the story, because I honestly didn’t write anything down in my notes for this day. The next morning, we headed for home.

Costa Rica is definitely more commercialized than Peru, where we went last year. Peru has this amazing sense of history, and you just don’t get that in Costa Rica. Despite that, I really enjoyed the trip. Just the sheer number of birds and animals we saw was amazing. Costa Rica Expeditions was a great choice for booking our trip, and I would definitely recommend them. I always like to book through a local operator if possible, rather than going through an American intermediary company.

Thanks Lyn. I plan to upload more when I return from Bhutan in October. I am not so thrilled with my old stuff, but hopefully I will be pleased enough with my Bhutan stuff to post it with my travelogue when I return.
