I was nervous at first about going because I had some distracting effects affecting me but, once I refocused on my future I was really eager about going I felt I needed the break. I was really looking forward to eating great meals, learning all that I can, and sightseeing.

They would just simply walk up to you and sniff you or sit by you or even stand in front of you begging for food they would even let you pet them. That was a very intense experience I was truly amazed. What made this trip striking for me was getting a chance to see all the remarkable land marks and cities. We visited five different cities Monteverde, Nicoya, Samara, Guanacasta, and Nosarita. I didn’t have a favorite city I liked everywhere we visited. Every city had something good to offer food, shopping, and very great

    mountains of Costa Rica. I’m lying on the twin mattress of the top bunk that I’m sharing with another girl. We had gotten to the reserve two days ago and spent the day before digging a 2 metre deep septic tank for the local church and we were getting ready to go back and finish the bathroom the church has waited so long for.
