Andy Travel Central America, Costa Rica Leave a Comment

We traveled to Costa Rica at the end of December 2013, just after Christmas and we stayed through New Year’s Day. It was sort of a quick 5 day trip, but in this photo gallery you’ll see photos from La Fortuna, Rio Celeste, and Puerto Viejo. One of the places we had a lot of fun and got some great pictures was at the Jaguar Rescue Center in Puerto Viejo.
