Costa Rica

November 17, 2014
This September I went to Costa Rica for a week with 16 of my friends.  It was such a blast!  
We all stayed in a gorgeous Villa Rental in Manuel Antonio.  
The location was perfect, and the view was gorgeous.  It was nice to have a place that was big enough for all of us.  It was super close to so many things too.  Within 30 minutes in either direction we had every adventure you could hope for, and the beaches at Manuel Antonio were really close.

While we were at the villa, Ciara took maternity pictures for Nicole.  I kept her hair and makeup really natural since we were in the Costa Rican jungle.

While we were there we went on a swinging bridge hike at Rainmaker.  True to it's name, it rained (poured) on us, but it was worth it.

The high light of our trip was visiting the Hacienda Baru National Wildlife Refuge.  We were lucky enough to go on a day when some baby turtles where making their way to the ocean, and we got to help.  So cool!

I hope I get to go back and see the rest of Costa Rica.  It's hard to believe there are so many amazing things in one country!
