One of the many reasons I moved to Costa Rica was so I could afford to travel, by traveling locally to innumerable nature places in Costa Rica, year around! And it is now even cheaper than if I owned a car! Because I travel by local bus or occasionally by local airplanes it is cheaper than buying and operating a car – and healthier! For the first half of 2018 I have now booked a different experience monthly for February-May.
Here’s some links to places I will visit the next few months (without specific dates for security):
February – OROSI VALLEY & TAPANTI NATIONAL PARK
Birding at chalet as well as in the nearby parks.
|Tapanti National Park
One of many waterfalls supposedly.
February – San Jose for performance of CIRQUE DU SOLEIL
|Read article about show designed just for Costa Rica|
I am going with the expat club of Atenas on a bus like several other trips to San Jose. Fun! Though I just read the article and I believe it is actually in Alajuela and not San Jose, so even closer!
March – DANTA CORCOVADO BIRDING
|Real jungle living for 5 nights in rainforest.|
My 3rd trip to Corcovado is this time on the eastern side of the large park/reserve compared to my previous trips to SW & NW corners at Carate & Drake Bay.
This will compete with my Arenal trip below as the best trip the first 6 months! 🙂
April – MISSION TRIP TO HOGAR DE VIDA, ATENAS
May – ARENAL VOLCANO RAINFOREST BIRDING
|My Room window and deck will look out at the famous volcano.
If erupting, I will see the red lava at night.
Arenal Volcano, Costa Rica
I am staying at best birding lodge in the area, Arenal Observatory Lodge with room view of the volcano.
