Costa Rica: Carate – Finca Exotica Eco Lodge (Review)

June 30, 2022 8:00am
The community of Carate is located in a remote part of Costa Rica's Osa Peninsula, bordering on the incredible Corvocado National Park. It is a hard place to get to and when you get there it is largely undeveloped. This, for us, was part of the attraction. During our time in Carate we stayed at the lovely and spectacular Finca Exotica Eco Lodge, which is set in a glorious rainforest, full of wildlife.

Costa Rica: Finca 6 Sphere Museum

The exact purpose and natue of the near perfectly spherical pre-Colombian Diquis stones is not known but they are undoubtedly an important part of Costa Rican culture. They largely disappeared, hidden from site buried under soil, until they were rediscovered during the clearing of land for banana plantations. Many spheres were damaged and had to be restored before being preserved for posterity.

Costa Rica: Puntarenas – Drake Bay

June 23, 2022 8:30am
Drake Bay is a small community located on the beautiful and remote Osa Peninsula on the southern Pacific Coast of Costa Rica (you can see the hills and mountains of Panama from here!). Its name came about after, as legend has it, Sir Francis Drake the great English sea captain (who was chums with Queen Elizabeth I), discovered it in 1579. Today, it is still hard to reach but the journey is well worth the effort if you want to escape the crowds found in other parts of Costa Rica.

Costa Rica: Puntarenas – Monteverde; Don Juan Coffee Tour

June 9, 2022 8:45am
The climate in the central mountains of Costa Rica is ideal for growing coffee, so there are numerous coffee plantations scattered around the area, many of them small holdings. We love coffee and had enjoyed a cup or two every morning during our time in Costa Rica, so we decided to visit a coffee plantation to join a tour to see how coffee is grown, harvested and produced.

Costa Rica: Puntarenas – Monteverde Cloud Forest

June 2, 2022 3:07pm
The Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve was established in 1972 and initially covered some 810 acres (328 ha) of forested land. Nowadays, its protective reach extends over 35,089 acres (14,200 ha) and encompasses eight life zones atop the Continental Divide. There are over 100 species of mammals, 400 species of birds, and 1,200 species of amphibians and reptiles living within its bounds. It’s one of the few remaining habitats that support all six species of the cat family — jaguars, ocelots, pumas, oncillas, margays, and jaguarundis — as well as the endangered three-wattled bellbird and resplendent quetzal. Over 8 miles (13 km) of trails are available for visitors to explore on their own or with a guide.

One of the most popular activities in the Monteverde region of Costa Rica is to enjoy the rain forests by exploring the canopies by crossing hanging bridges or zip lining. There are several adventure parks in the area that make this possible. We decided to visit the Selvatura Adventure Park to see what it had to offer.
