After the cloud forest of Monte Verde, we headed to La Fortuna.  The bumpy dirt road through the valley was a spectacular way to view the ranches perched on the greenest mountains I have ever see
Monte Verde is our first stop in Costa Rica.  This area was settled by Quakers once Costa Rica decided to eliminate its military.  This area is now almost exclusively a natural reserve. 
Living in a land-locked state, we're always more than willing to hangout in beach towns.  San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua was one of our favorite little towns so far.  It has a slight touch of t

Meggan and I had the opportunity to go up into the mountains of Honduras to a ranch.  I think it was our best day so far, what an amazing experience.  It was about an hour and a half from
