Costa Rica - Part 3
Just a quick picture post…
We went to Manuel Antonio for the last stretch of the week. So first we flew in to San José, and then drove three hours to our hotel. There was lots to see on this drive—it was holiday (the patron saint’s day) so everyone was outside walking to the celebrations.
Our hotel was called Sí Como No, which I find hilarious because it perfectly captures a tourist’s/vacationer’s state of mind. Yes, why not?
This hotel was a bit more luxurious than Mawamba Lodge but just as beautiful, too. Like Mawamba, it was very integrated into the land on which it sits (the area was very hilly, somewhat steep). For instance, we had to go up and down a lot of stairs to get to our room, the pool, the restaurants, everything.

Dolphins also made an appearance while we were in Manuel Antonio:
