Parque Nacional Carara was not my favorite trip, but a couple of cool pics here and there.

A photo diary of my trip to Mal País on the Nicoya Peninsula, featuring beautiful beaches, horseback rides and gigantic waterfalls.

Photos of our class field trip to Sarchí, the biggest, but most beautiful, tourist trap I’ve ever seen.

For those of you who don’t have permission to see my Facebook (sorry), I posted plenty of the pictures from some of my more recent trips to:

And you can now view ALL my pictures from Costa Rica on my dedicated photography page on IFSA-Butler’s blog. With finals around the corner, captioning every photo is not a luxury I have. However, if you have questions, comment here, or comment on a specific photo. I’d love to answer them.

Maybe it was the heat. Maybe it was the sun. Or the weight of my backpack. Or of my clothes. Or a combination of them all.

Either way, one part of this journey to the top of Cerro Chato (literally, “Flat Hill”) involved lying down in the middle of the path hypervenilating.

This hill was anything but flat. 8 kilometers round-trip at a very steep incline. I was clammy, sweaty, and ready to give up and head right back down the mountain to the hostel.

Lucky the bottom half of my pants could zip off. Lucky that I could take my shirt off to prevent overheating. Lucky I brought enough water to keep me hydrated.

And I’m very lucky to have two good friends to share the literal load on my shoulders and take as many breaks as we needed to make it to the top.

And boy was it worth it.

Check out photos of the magnificent view. 

(For the record, I’m still too sore to walk.)
