We flew to San Jose, Costa Rica and spent the night near the airport. The next day was a long day because we traveled for 5 hours to get to Dominical which is where our house is. I'm glad we are out of the cold and are now in a tropical rainforest.
The house looks like a treehouse because there is a lot of living space outside. It is built into a hill which is great because we have a perfect view of the mountains, ocean and jungle! There is a pool which is the perfect temperature, no chlorine and I practiced snorkeling in it too. I thought the house was going to be terrible because my mom kept saying, "Don't get your hopes up." But it ended up being beautiful.
Just on the first day we saw 4 toucans, geckos and a lizard. The lizard is called a basilisk and is special because it can literally run on water! I'm looking forward to seeing other unique animals.
