Day one of our adventures in Costa Rica was a success! Pictured is thebreathtaking view from the window of our arrival into Costa Rica. When we got through customs at the airport, it was clear that we weren’t in Allentown anymore. The oppressive humidity and hustling crowds were a bit overwhelming, but also exhilarating at the same time. After getting our luggage, we met Carlos, the owner of the community center that we are staying at. He was extremely friendly and welcoming and was just as excited as we were to begin our journey. Our ride to Las Juntas was a wet one, but that did not stop us from enjoying the scenic views on the Pan-American Highway. We finally arrived at the Community Center of Las Juntas, dropped off our bags, and quickly headed back out to explore the town! Our first day in Costa Rica was exciting, but we cannot wait to see what the rest of the trip has in store for us. Tomorrow we are off to take a tour of gold mines and to explore some more!
