Costa Rica - July 7-14

Tuesday, July 13, 2010


My most favorite things on this trip were zip lining, rappelling down the waterfalls, and the intense games of marco polo at night. You can’t forget all the little things like the swimming with the Bri-Bri and the coconut expedition on the beach. I learned that it’s really hard to break a coconut without a specialized tool, like a machete would do it. Also, the food here is phenomenal. I couldn’t get enough of the chocolate:D HAHA!  Anyway I had an amazing time and gladly I took a lot of pictures so I can remember this one in a life time trip.

Best Summer Ever

My summers are usually me on the computer or on my Xbox 360 playing games, but this summer was amazing; I got to go to Costa Rica. I got to do things that most people don’t do until they are in their mid 20’s. This was an experience I will never forget. I will look forward to doing an adventure like this again.

Costa Rica was amazing, we had so many fun activities and programs set up for us. My favorite was when we got to visit the villagers and learn about their family and culture. –Stephanie P.

Over The Edge

Today our group did one of the most exciting things we’ve done this trip:  repelling down the waterfalls.We rode 4x4’s out to where we geared up and headed to  the first spot. We repelled down 5 different spots in the rainforest, and 4 out of the 5 we actually got to repel either next to or right on the waterfall. At the first spot, i was sort of nervous because I have never done something like this before. Zip lining is nothing like repelling down more than a 100ft waterfall. And repelling down rock walls is nothing like it at all. This was real, actual rocks in the middle of the rainforest. Getting fastened and starting to lean over the edge,  was when the emotions really kicked in. Eventually I took a deep breath and did it. I knew once I did it once I could do it 4 more times effortlessly. And that’s how it ended up happening. Repelling down itself was exhilarating. I felt confident on the next four, even though I still wasn’t doing it right. I wasn’t the best at it, but it was still an amazing experience. I mean think about it, how many people can say they’ve been repelling down waterfalls in the middle of the rainforests of Costa Rica? Well now I’m one of those people who can say that I have.
