Video from Costa Rica

#68_costarica_monteverde

After finishing up my live updates from Panama, I can now present the video from Costa Rica. Although it was my least favorite country in Central America, it does not mean that the trip wasn’t good! In fact it actually was quiet nice, especially watching sea turtles lay eggs and doing some canopy as well as the obvious hikes through tropic rain forests.

Live #50, Corcovado National Park, Costa Rica

#70_costarica_corcovado01/02/2015 I made it to country No. 54 (Uruguay) and will travel from Colonia to Montevideo today. This update is the last one from Costa Rica and the Corcovado National Park was actually my highlight of the overall a little bit disappointing Costa Rica.

Live #49, Chirripó National Park, Costa Rica

#69_costarica_chirripo29/01/2015 Volcan Calbuco erupted again but luckily the wind did not blow the ash to Bariloche, so my flight last night to Buenos Aires was not cancelled! I am here now and will try to get a nice Argentinean BBQ organized 🙂 This update reports from my failed attempt to climb Cerro Chirripó in Costa Rica!

Live #48, Monteverde Canopy Tour, Costa Rica

#68_costarica_monteverde26/01/2015 A spectacular eruption of Volcan Calbuco happened yesterday just a few hours after I left Puerto Montt, coming back from the four day Navimag cruise along the Western Fjords of Patagonia. Now I am in Casto (Chilóe) and have to change my plans a bit, climbing in the Cochamó valley is off the table since it’s very close to the still active volcano… Well, at least I can get the next update out from the Canopy/Zip Lining trip in the Monteverde Cloudforest in Costa Rica. Hope you like it and I hope I will be able to leave the area again towards Buenos Aires as planned!

Live #47, Tilarán & Lago de Arenal, Costa Rica

#67_costarica_tilaran26/01/2015 I’m back from six awesome days in Torres del Paine, having sun all way through and just rain on the last day! A lot of great pictures got out of that trip, so I better hurry up with my older live updates to quickly get up to speed again after weeks of internet absence. The second update from Costa Rica covers Tilarán & Lago de Arenal and not much happened there expect for an awesome rainbow 🙂

Live #46, Tamarindo, Costa Rica

#66_costarica_tamarindo24/01/2015 Starting with my first live update from Costa Rica, I will now use the date of the actual time I have been to the places in my live updates here instead of the current day. It just makes much more sense and I don’t know why I haven’t done it from the beginning 🙂 So Costa Rica… the first country in which everything gets a bit more expensive. The start was really cool, watching turtles laying their eggs at the beaches near Tamarindo!

Upcoming: Central America

Travelling from 03/11/2014 to End of January, 2015

g_around_the_world_2I wanted to get this out much sooner, but combining traveling with the planning of next stops takes a lot time; especially when we are talking about a total of eight countries! I am flying from Toronto to Cancun tomorrow morning and can now finally present my first set of ideas of what to do in Central America. Check it out if you are interested in joining me for any parts or if you can perhaps give me some advice!
