Costa Rica

We arrived at Ocotal, on the Pacific cost, around noon. We spent the day at a beach laying out, reading, and swimming. The water was really warm and the sand was black.
It was so nice to finally be at a beach; we had been so busy with the travels that two days relaxing at the beach were just what we needed. Once we were sick of cooling off in the salt water, we headed for the pool for the rest of the day. Around 4pm the rain came and we headed toward our room. After showers, it was dinner time. We went to a local restaurant which was very good. We were planning to go out after dinner, but we fell asleep instead; Costa Rica wore all of us out!

The next day we were up early to go snorkeling. We saw dolphins, stingrays, octopus, squid, and a lot of pretty fish. It was a lot of fun. Once we finished snorkeling we relaxed on the boat a while until heading back to the resort. The rest of the day was spent next to the pool listening to music. It was a perfect last day and ending to our adventure in Costa Rica! The day ended with a beautiful sunset and a fun night hanging out in the Ocotal village.
