This blog will be a discussion about the first two days of the trip. I flew out of Boston at 5 AM and finally landed in San Jose, Costa Rica at 10:30 AM (Costa Rica is two hours behind Boston). After passing through customs, outside the airport. I was met by my driver and driven to the Hotel Bougainvillea. After checking in, I took my camera and went out to their beautiful gardens. Early that evening three of us met Greg for a drink and were told we would be leaving in the morning at 6 AM. After supper I got everything ready for the trip by taking my tripod out of my checked luggage, since we wanted available when we stopped for breakfast. Because of the possibility of sloths being in that area.
