Costa Rica

Well, on Tuesday I'm off to Costa Rica, to hopefully visit a friend and explore a few areas of jungle. On the way we have a forty mile trek across New York from JFK to Newark airports. This may sound like being quite a pain, but after arriving in San Jose we have one night to recover before an eight hour bus journey to Golfito.

Golfito is an old fruit plantation, that is being reclaimed by the rainforest and is also on the pacific coast. The contrast should make for some interesting animal and plant finds. I imagine we'll stay there for a day before moving on to Pavones, and finally Punta Blanco (if the road is open).

And then it's a few more hundred miles back to San Jose, hopefully with some time to spare to see a few sights before flying back, going across New York, and arriving back in London.

Sounds rather hectic to me!
