Pura Vida, Costa Rica! Part 2 – Monteverde & Arenal

You know when you get back from the beach, even if just for one day, and sand falls out of your shoes, clothes, books, suncream bottle caps... everywhere? The optimist in me says hey, you're carrying your own little piece of the beach with you! All that seemed worlds away now that we'd arrived in Monteverde, nature and outdoors lovers' dream, and home to 2.5% of the world's biodiversity.
