We made it down to Costa Rica in the morning after flying all night. The flight wasn’t bad at all, I slept basically the whole time and Ryan got a little less than me because he watched a movie while I slept. We did get to sit together though (which we weren’t sure if we would be able to) and we even got the exit row so Ryan was really excited about that. Once we got here it was about a 2 hour drive by van to Los Suenos. The drive was a little scary just because you are going along these narrow roads right next to the edge and it was raining off and on the whole time. We got to the hotel and had a little time before we could check in so we just sat out in the patio area and played some cards, ate some lunch and watched the rain.
We decided that even though it was raining a little we would go out into the pool and check out the resort. The weather really didn’t bother us, it rained off and on, mostly lightly and wouldn’t last for too long. We thought that if it was like this the whole time we would be fine! The pool here is awesome, it is like 8 pools that are all linked together and the surrounding area is so pretty. We had a great time swimming and relaxing. That night we went to The Hook Up, a sports bar just around the corner. The food was so good!

We woke up to the sun shinning so thought we better go out to the pool to enjoy the sun while it was out. While we were laying out a water aerobics class started so I made Ryan join in with me. It was fun and surprisingly it was also a pretty good workout! It started raining so we went and had lunch and then to our surprise it stopped raining and still hasn’t really started again! The day was beautiful, the sky was blue and the sun was out. It was so hot! We were going to go into Jaco today but decided to wait until Thursday because who knows if we will get another day like today. Another day of laying out, swimming and relaxing.
We’ve been having a great time. I can’t believe how humid it is here! But we definitely can’t complain about the weather, we were preparing for the worst so we’ve been so excited with how it has been so far. Tomorrow we’re going over to Tortuga Island for the day which sounds like it should be pretty neat. We’re keeping our fingers crossed that it will be another day like today! Now we’re off to Jaco for dinner, we’ll try to post more later!

I tried to put some pictures on but couldn't get the loaded on! I'll try again next time...
