Flag of Costa Rica  , Province of Puntarenas,
Thursday, July 22, 2010

Thursday afternoon 7 other students and I boarded a public bus headed for Monteverde, Costa Rica. Our bus ride took almost 5 hours, the last 2 hours being down a thin dirt road that climbed up into the foggy mountains. It was also after dark so it was a relief when we arrived. 

As we hopped off the public bus it was pouring outside, but lucky for us, a person from our hostel was there ready to take us to our rooms. The hostel we stayed at turned out to be an incredible place. It was not the nicest place ever, but was clean, had internet access, and a hot shower. AND they made breakfast for us the next morning. Grand total price: $6.00 

The next morning we decided as a group to go ziplining through the cloud forest. It was an incredible experience and I feel that I now know the true meaning of breathtaking: Ziplining out of the clouds as I soar hundreds of feet over a rainforest valley below. Truly an unforgettable experience.  

After ziplining we took a jeep-boat-jeep journey to Volcan Arenal (Arenal Volcano). The first jeep portion of the trip was amazingly scenic and the boat part was fun as well. The jeep took us all the way to our second hostel.
