This was our second trip to Costa Rica – we were excited that Marriott had built a nice property on the Pacific Coast. We like to adventure and know the roads can be a bit “rough” so we rented a 4x4 to get around. We travel a lot for both work and pleasure and have visited many Marriott properties around the world. We used points for this stay and had an oceanfront room.

The beach is really great for swimming which is a shame as the waters of Costa Rica are really warm and inviting. We walked down to Avellana’s (30 minutes) and went in there. We collected some great shells along the way. If you do go in the water in front of the hotel, be careful of the rocks.

Arrived at Bocas del Toro at 10:30 and were at the resort by noon. The day was spent getting to know the resort and lazing away a little.

Day 6 we went scuba diving. We left at 8AM from Popas and were back by 4:30ish. Scuba was a bit of a pain since we had to go all the way back to Bocas but as I said the boat ride was quite scenic. We used Starfleet scuba. We only dive once a year and the places we’ve been to typically put together our gear for us. So we were quite spoiled and very surprised when they asked us to assemble our own gear. Haha – we were very rusty and got a little lecture on taking a refresher course. I did feel very safe though since they watched us like a hawk to make sure we did it correctly. Again as a result of it being the end of the tourist season, it was just the two of us with our own dive master and a dive master in training. So we were given lots of attention and many things were pointed out to us underwater. Scuba diving was fairly decent compared to the diving in the Caribbean; the coral especially was very nice. After diving we walked around Bocas Town – there really isn’t much to do during the day and we were happy to be staying on another island.

「We spent 4 nights by Arenal and thought in that time we'd be guaranteed to see lava, but I didn't realize that even in the dry season, it rains a lot

We spent 4 nights by Arenal and thought in that time we'd be guaranteed to see lava, but I didn't realize that even in the dry season, it rains a lot in that area.The night lava view was a total waste, it poured and we couldn't even see where it was, much less lava. We did get lucky on a clear day and saw and heard a lot on a daytime hike. Unfortunately I forgot my camera battery back at the room charging up. We met a couple who said they would email their pictures, but nothing yet. If we ever go back, I would stay at the Arenal Observatory Lodge for a couple days even though everything else about it gets pretty bad reviews. It is so close to the action, and really, isn't that why you're there? I guess what I'm trying to say is seeing the mighty Arenal in action is even more of a gamble than seeing wildlife.

we went to the Corcovado national park, actually I saw more monkeys in MA than in Corcovado, but I saw more other species in Corcovado than anywhere else in Costa Rica.

some people complaining not being able to see some animals that they expected to see,what I would say is : don't expect too much since it's not a zoo, it's national park. we were not lucky enough to see tapirs, but we saw 4 wild macaws flying in the jungle, what a beautiful birds :)

元祖ディズニーランドに行ってきました。東京よりアトラクションは古くパークも狭いですが、古き良き「遊園地」の名残りがあり、ゆったりと時間が流れています。ホリデーシーズンでない限りは1日で全部回れると思います。

モルディブへ行くなら、マレ島で1泊して観光してから、ヴェリ島へ渡りリゾートを満喫するプランがおすすめです♡ 心ゆくまでリラックスできて、モルディブが大好きになることでしょう! 空気が濃い!青い空に青い海に、小ちゃい動物たち、白い砂浜。 地上の楽園と言う人がいるけど、本当にそうですよね。 今まで、アジアだと知りませんでした…。インド洋の宝石箱と呼ばれているらしいです。スリランカの南西に浮かんでます。 モルディブはマレ島以外すごく小っちゃな島がたくさん集まって出来ています。マレ島も小さいけど、もっと小さい島がたくさん。それで実現する、ひとつの島に1リゾートっていうのが本当に素敵!
