Off the beaten path in Costa Rica: Liberia’s Fiestas Civicas
During our vacation in Costa Rica, to my utter joy Vera and I stumbled upon the Horse Parade in Liberia, Costa Rica. I always loved horses and to be able to watch them in a parade was awesome!

Pura Vida, Costa Rica – Three weeks of Costa Rica!
The tranquil beach of Ocotal is situated in Costa Rica’s stunning Guanacaste province on the northern Pacific coast.

I should also mention I was there in March, with FOUR beautiful ladies who really took good care of me!!
