Costa Rica

On the first day of our Costa Rica tour we were met at the airport for our transfer to the San Jose hotel. Our home for the first two nights of our tour was the San Jose Barcelo. At the welcome dinner and briefing, we met the rest our group of 42 nature lovers and our tour director. By this time, I was anxious to start the tour and to enjoy the wildlife and the beautiful Costa Rica paradise. Our nine night, ten day vacation included breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Our tour director made sure everyone was happy and had a great time.


Sunrise on the second day, looks like a great start to the day.


Day two..Poas Volcano and the cloud forest. As you can see the clouds were there and we did not have a view of the crater.





The ferns that lined the walkway were just beautiful.


Lunch break included a nice view of the valley.



Sunset back at the San Jose Barcelo hotel.



I will be posting my Costa Rica bird photos at my blog http://viewingnaturewitheileen.blogspot.com/2010/04/costa-rica-birds.html
I hope you enjoyed my San Jose skywatch and you can see more skies from all over at Skywatch Friday
Thanks for visiting my blog and thanks to the hosting team of Skywatch Friday.
