Travelogue – Costa Rica

A note from the Publisher: The Costa Rica Blog Network has chosen to feature the following article for its exploration of Costa Rica’s Guanacaste region and its depiction of the area’s intricate and wildlife-inspired detail, as evidenced by the following statements: “Our hotel’s architecture was inspired by the local environment and habitat. I stared at the reception building long enough to see it resemble the lip of a clay pot complete with a roof that resembled the splayed wings of a butterfly. Guest room roofs mimicked leatherback turtles and the shells of armadillos.” Thanks to Simon for submitting his personal account to us. We hope one day you are able to make the return trip to Costa Rica that you speak of, and accomplish those missed day trips to Nicaragua and Tamarindo. Pura vida!
