While the purpose of my Costa Rica trip is mostly to catch up with friends and adopted families from my time living here, I also had one destination I wanted to go to... the BEACH!
On the way to the Pacific Ocean, you can stop at a certain bridge to see the crocodiles that wait for tourist treats, haha. I counted about 30 (crocodiles, that is, not tourist snacks :))! Thankfully, there's no fear of being eaten because we are on top of the bridge and the crocodiles are all under.
The view of the crocodile river.
And the ''gringo beach,'' according to several ticos. The official name is Manual Antonio.
Pictures just do not do this beach justice. I just wanted to soak in all the mental pictures that I could.
