Why Everyone should Visit Manuel Antonio, a Tropical Paradise in Costa Rica
Pura Vida! It’s the unofficial motto of the country of Costa Rica, as I learned from a recent trip. You will hear this greeting from everyone, which basically means ‘Pure Life’. It's also used by locals as a greeting or expression, simply meaning that life is short, so be grateful for what you have. Tiny Costa Rica, surrounded on both sides by water, and covered with forest in between, is a nature lovers paradise, and the country's inhabitants, known as Ticos, are grateful for these treasures. This Central American country is well known for its eco tourism, beautiful national parks and abundant wildlife.

Hola Colombia! Welcome to the second part of my adventure in this three-part series. We went to Lake Guatavita before our visit to the Salt Cathedral. Rumor has it that El Dorado was here aka the land of gold. It was a strenuous hike to the top, with not much to see and no remnants of gold LOL. Plus you can't swim at the lake either.
