Keeping You In Stitches

Fun Time at Playa Dona Ana – Costa Rica

Posted on: January 24, 2013

This past Tuesday we took Maricela, Dylana, and Nazareth to the beach.  It was the first time they had been there…Maricela had been there before but it’s been a long time.

As we drove into the parking lot, there was a gorgeous iguana running across the road and climbed up a tree!  So pretty, even the girls were very excited.

This beach is a National Park so it’s very well kept.

We love this beach because there is a section with trees, picnic tables, grills, etc.  These trees are the ones the monkeys love scampering in….

We had no more than arrived in this particular area, and Nazareth and Dylana spotted monkeys frolicking in the trees! They were so excited!!!  It was so fun to see them get excited; their faces and grins told the whole story.

All the tables were full so we found a stretch that was still in the shade and settled down there.  In seconds the girls were in the water.

Nazareth has no fear of anything! Maricela kept telling her that this is not like a pool, and to not go out too far.  She minded most of the time and between Mark and Maricela, Nazareth stayed in pretty close to shore.

We had taken sandwiches and snack food; and stopped at a fruit vendor to purchase bananas for the monkeys.  They were so excited to feed them…..and as usual, we saw mama monkeys carrying their offspring and jumping from tree to tree.

On our way home, we saw a Granizado man and of course, we stopped; we all had “rojo” granizados, except Mark – he declined one. LOL  The rest of us just slurped ours down – yum!

I was very surprised the girls stayed awake on the ride home; it was obvious they were tired!

They had such a good time that they are going back next week with a friend that has never been there!

The girls start back to school on Feb. 4th and it will be quiet in the development! LOL
