    I travelled to Costa Rica a few weeks ago, with two main purposes. Waterfalls and Wildlife. I will tell you I was having difficulty finding a local guide to take me, one single solo person for a day trip. Then I found Manuel! (or he found me?) Manuel had no hesitation saving me a day in his calendar. He is so easy going and me being a shy girl, he made me feel so welcome. He brought me to Llanos de Cortés waterfall, followed by a rainforest tour, lunch and a cacao plantation tour. Manuel is so informative and I learned so much that day! He stopped for roadside pineapple and mango, and I still keep telling people about the spice he made me try on the pineapple. This day was an awesome experience and I feel so blessed. Much thanks to Manuel, one of a kind and just so...Pura Vida!

    We were grateful to find this church not too far from our hotel in Guanacaste. Took a water taxi to Playa del Coco. Went to mass then spent a bit of time in the town. Mass is at 11:00 Sunday

    mostly crafts and on the expensive side. Cheaper stuff at gift shops.
    Not much food or fruits and vegtable stands. Just a couple and they were expensive also.

    Great store if you want to support some local artists and are looking for upgrades from some of the typical souvenir shops. I got a great pair or earrings and necklace here that were unique. Tons of art for anyone who is looking to bring home some art. Higher quality soft style tshirts. Just a nice little shop to get some quality gifts.

    We have purchased many gifts from there to take back with us for family and friends. Their decorative art pillows are amazing. A few weeks ago, we bought ourselves a gorgeous new standing lamp with a hand painted shade. They will hand paint any size of shade. We love the customer service there as well.

    Stopped in the casino while on a shopping trip in Playa de Coco. Maybe a total of 20 slots, some take American money, you will know which do because there will be a $ sign on it. When you close out they will come by and write a ticket , then give you the money but it is never what the machine says you have. Staff is very friendly but our trip to the casino was a total waste of time.

    I've been going to church here for numerous years. God's presence is felt there every time and I'm blessed to have had so many experiences, blessings and long friendships come from being a part of this wonderful congregation. The Spanish church has grown so sweetly and big and the "gringo" church, although it grows and then gets small with the seasons, the love and connection remains.
