Welcome to Dansk udgave!

  We visited Costa Rica in February 2020.
First we spent some days in the surroundings
of San José, where we among others visited a
coffee plantation. Then we went by bus to
Pavona where we entered a boat and sailed into
the Tortuguero National Park where we lived at
"Evergreen Lodge" for three days. Then we
spent some days in La Fortuna where we saw the
Fortuna Waterfall and the Arenal Volcano and
where we bathed in the hot springs. The last days
we spent in the Manuel Antonio National Park.

On this page we are showing some of our photos.
