I stayed for two weeks in Costa Rica, but I decided I’d rather take our time to discover the place then rushing from one place to another. So besides Arenal and Monteverde, I focused on the Pacific Coast – from Tamarindo to Manuel Antonio Park. Also because I wanted to catch some waves 😉 and I made the right decision!
La Fortuna (meaning lucky!)… a good name for a village lying around a well awaken Volcano. You can’t miss … it dominates all the surroundings from wherever you are. Majestic and apparently quiet, but if you look closer (a binocular will be very useful) you’ll see him breading… a small line of smoke coming out the top.
I visited Costa Rica in April 2019, staying for 2 happy and adventurous weeks, searching for hidden places beyond the hot spots highlighted in most guides!
Welcome to Odeceixe, a typical Alentejo village, with its white small houses next to each other forming narrow streets and leading you, up the hill, to the church. Be brave and make it to the windmill and find perfect picture scenario and an amazing 360 degrees view!
