This was a huge bonding experience for the four of us. What near-death experiences aren't?
This is still one of the most bonding type experiences we've ever had together.
For some stupid reason, I was so excited to be here that I didn't even take a picture of this place and its fantastic hot springs, Or I may have been drunk the whole time. I can't remember.
We left Arenal and headed to the southern tip of the country just a few miles from Panama and flew into the most beautiful landing strip I have ever seen. We loaded up into a tiny plane that couldn't hold the weight of all 4 of us so my sister had to fly by herself in another plane while we helped our pilot fly because apparently, he was blind. Seriously!! He had to lift up his bottle glasses and put his face inches in front of the instruments to see them. I'm pretty sure he landed the plane from muscle memory.
We were staying at Tiskita Eco Lodge. The lodge was built on a large cow pasture and up into the rain forest and now is a private biological reserve and an organic orchard.
We picked the pool during the day and balcony at sunset.
Notice my nerd brother and sister reading Breaking Dawn!!!!
Here we had another 5 days of absolute nothingness. Days spent by the pool. Long, LONG walks down the beach in search of parties, ATMs and new scenery.
And most memorable of all, riding behind a jet ski on a giant inflated banana and listening to Mike "cramp up" then bailing out into the ocean leaving us bouncing in after him laughing so hard we all almost drowned.
Because that's much better...... apparently.
