My gypsy life…finally in the written word
Friends of mine have forever suggested that I begin a travel blog, as I tend to spend more time aboard an airplane, train or ship on my way to my next adventure. I become a bit agitated if I’m home for two weeks with no imminent departures planned. Which leads me to this day….my first entry.
I returned yesterday from Costa Rica, where I spent one glorious week at the Four Seasons in Papagayo Peninsula, in which I had the pleasure of staying in a friend’s private villa, overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Thankfully, I’ve had the luxury of residing in his villa at least once per quarter for the last 5 years, and would recommend the facility to anyone. The Costa Rican hospitality is kind, gentile and sincere and the property is well-run, as well as impeccable. Additionally, the wifi is excellent throughout the entire peninsula.
Following my stay in Papagayo, I headed toward the Arenal area, where I stayed in one of favorite places on the planet: Chachagua Rainforest Hotel, which is an ecotourist’s luxury dream! The property grows it’s own organic produce and livestock, provides educated rainforest tours, horse riding tours, cozy bungalows for rainy afternoons napping in hammocks, babbling brooks, hummingbirds, toucans, etc…
When one stays in Chachagua Rainforest Inn, one feels at home.
