Costa Rica Day 8: Osa Peninsula

We woke up this morning to our outdoor bathtub and the chirping of birds and insects outside our window at Nayara Hotel near Volcán Arenal.



















After breakfast, we spent most of our day on the journey to Osa Peninsula, which is located at the southwest tip of the country and home to at least half of all species living in Costa Rica. 



















We traveled for 3 hours by car, 45 minutes by plane, 15 minutes by boat, and 10 minutes on foot to Paloma Lodge, where Priya and I have the best window in the world.


We just finished dinner with the wonderfully warm and large-hearted Marxe family, meeting Hope, Isabelle, Emme, Austin, Diane, and Unik and enjoying a joyful conversation about travel, school, and our times in Costa Rica. A lovely end to the first day of our year!
