Adios Costa Rica. Hola Peru.

After a month of total relaxation it’s time to leave Costa Rica. We’re leaving behind a beautiful country. The beaches, the sunsets, the tropical jungle, the friendly people.

Chillin in CR

Thursday, December 4th, Lila and I flew from San Salvador into San Jose, Costa Rica. San Jose is the countries capital and largest city. The majority of the population resides here making it a lively and slightly chaotic introduction, but one we had been looking forward to.
