Costa Rica - Day 1

Hola! Today was day one of the Costa Rican Proficiency trip. We left Miami and flew to San José. We boarded the charter buses and we were on our way to finally eat some lunch at El Rodeo. We experienced new dishes such as: cold fish soup, palm hearts, and chimchurri sauce; however, some were familiar such as steak and chicken. After eating, we headed to Alajuela to tour the Buttterfly Farm. Our guide Jonathon informed us about butterfly species and anatomy as well as the connection between humans and butterflies as part of the the ecosystem. Following the tour, we took some very winding, narrow roads in the dark and the rain. Finally, after some scary turns, we arrived at our hotel, the Volcano Lodge in La Fortuna-San Carlos. More stories from the trip to come tomorrow!
