Honeymoon Photos!

And now, as promised, I will share a few of the best photos from our recent Honeymoon in Costa Rica. As with the wedding photos, you can see them ALL here.


Los Angeles Cloud Forest - Villa Blanca Casitas

The lush grounds at Villa Blanca

Colorful handpainted ox-cart - national symbol in Costa Rica

"Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow" plant

Arenal Volcano Region - La Mansion Resort Cottages


Our cottage at La Mansion

The gorgeous view of Lake Arenal from our front porch


Our "Welcome Drinks" when we arrived at La Mansion - they had just received a fresh palette of strawberries...

Breakfast served on our front porch
(while we were enjoying this breakfast, a rainbow broke out over the lake - gorgeous - unfortunately the photo did not turn out too well)



There were fresh flowers placed EVERYWHERE in our cottage daily

While on a river safari, we visited the home of a 95 year old local Costa Rican farmer - this is his kitchen - no electricity

Homemade bread, fried plantains, homemade cheese, and of course fresh coffee, prepared for us by the farmer's two daughters who still live at the farm

Two-toed sloth - we were very fortunate to get to see one so closely



Manuel Antonio - Pacific Coast


Ready for our Rainforest Canopy Tour

John on the zip line - such a rush!!

The sail on our catamaran - we toured the coves around Manuel Antonio, snorkeled, and watched dolphins

The beach at Quepos - near Manuel Antonio

If any of you have ever considered a trip to Costa Rica, I would highly recommend it - it was gorgeous, had very friendly folks, and was relatively affordable. Here is the wonderful travel agency that helped us pull all this together: http://www.vacationscostarica.com/
