The last week or so has opened up my mind and heart to explore what is Costa Rica. During the excursion in La Fortuna, I definitely embraced the nature of the waterfall. Just seeing it was amazing. Also, when we got swim in the safe area, it started to pour down. Most people would leave in order to get back indoors, but the majority of my new SOLmates and I stayed in the water and embraced the nature of La Fortuna. We all definitely deserved to relax at the hot springs afterwards in Los Lagoos.
This weekend, my group went to Manuel Antonio National Park, and it was super beautiful. There, we too embraced the nature of the beach and posed with as much of the rocks as possible. These adventures have gotten me more out of my comfort zone and helped me learn more about myself.
