I'm Back: My Adventures in COSTA RICA!! (Lots of Photos)

Tamarindo Beach, Costa Rica .... Enjoying the Sunset on My First Night
Hello Darlings! .... I didn't tell you where I was going beforehand, but I'm back.... from Costa Rica!!  I had a lot of fun. Good company. Just an overall pleasant experience.  When I came back earlier this week, I was still a little sore from doing "adventure activities" such as zip lining (boy did they strap me in...I felt the harness squeezing in every crevice...and I mean EVERY crevice), tubing (hit a couple of rocks going down the river), and horse-back riding (well, I opted out of this one, but my friends went ahead and had enough fun for me).  I also got to walk across a hanging bridge (which swung with pretty much every step we took...one of my friends wasn't feeling it AT ALL but I thought it was cool).  When I got to the other side of the hanging bridge I was greeted with a mud bath (my skin felt so smooth and silky afterwards) and natural volcanic hot springs.  Fun times...

 Wanna See the Hanging Bridge?...
Yup, it definitely swung from side-to-side as we trekked across.


REPTILES...

OMG, Did I mention I saw this HUGE lizard strolling down the walkway of my hotel as I lay on my beach chair taking in the ocean?? O_O ..... What is this anyway? An iguana? I don't even know!  I went to the front desk to inquire but they didn't know the English word for it.
Dear Lord, what in the world is this...and what has he come for??  #Tourists

Yeah, I pretty much took this picture and RAN!  You see him looking at me??  I didn't come to Costa Rica to get snatched up by some REPTILE!! Lol

A couple that was there told us they spotted either an ALLIGATOR or CROCODILE sometime earlier O_O.... Apparently there's a nearby river that harbors a whole bunch of reptiles....and every now and then they venture out *gulp*.


Ocean...

Din Din!! :)
Fried Red Snapper and Plantanos on the Menu! :) ......We met a Costa Rican friend that took us for dinner and drinks at The Monkey Bar in Flamingo.  He's such a sweetie pie! :)



Zip Lining Baby!

So I went zip lining for the VERY FIRST TIME!  I've been wanting to go to Costa Rica for a few years now, and I always told myself if I were to ever make the trip that I had to zip line!  Kept my promise

Strapped up and ready to go...I was nervous...don't let that smile fool you.
 
Can you believe this was the FIRST of a SERIES of zip lines? Can you even see where this thing ends? O_O

Me Swinging like Tarzan...so much fun!!!

We Zip Lined Over Canyons too!!....
We zipped over water too...

I zoomed in to get a better view...so I'm actually higher up than it looks (in quite a few of these photos)

See the ropes? That's for US to swing through! :)

Isn't this such a BEAUTIFUL view?  They were telling me not to look down but I wanted to take it ALL in!! :)


 That's It Folks!
