Costa Rica Part 2- Jet Skis & The Comeback

Pura Vida - Pure Life!!!

So here we go again, Part 2 of our Costa Rican adventure. Guys, in the image above I had the thumbs down going on. That's the face you make when you totally wipe out on jet skis. We started off good and was having a ton of fun while Hubs was driving and doing all his tricks as if he was driving his dirt bike, go figure. The problem came when we switched places to allow me reigns to drive. Since this was my first time actually driving a jet ski, I was unaware that you needed to start off fast rather than slow and then pick of your momentum, which is what I was doing – slow walking the situation. Well I know now, and learned the hard way! Because I eased at the power, and slowly took off, the darn thing flipped over and I went in with it smack dab into the Pacific! I went first then Hubs went next. When it was all over, we and some other couples who were watching on the beach had a good laugh. But I tell you what, when I was under the water it was no laughing matter, especially for a girl that can't swim! All I kept thinking while under was, how deep is this water and am I going to make it back to the top, Oh My God! Hubs hollered as the staff came running to our rescue, "Get her, she can't swim!" Note y'all, he told them to get me, not him coming to get me - he was over it:):):):) Check out the video below, smh

Well at least we started off on a high note!  Notice the expression on my face below - my how the tide had changed! I was like seriously Sybil! Click the video below.

After all the laughing and jokes from Hubs about how I was trying to kill us and how he had drank enough ocean water, there was nothing else to do but to go take a dip in the pool - the safe-free, non-motorized water sports zone! I wasn't complaining not one bit, the fresh water was so inviting, warm and relaxing. This pool is certainly a de-stressor and quite entertaining. And the only drinking I was doing at this point was my cocktail of choice, can anyone say, "Amaretto Sour please?"  Tastes a lot better than beach water, hmp!  The pool and cocktails - what a way to comeback right!!!

Upon first glance of this pic, you might be thinking I'm highlighting the beautiful scenery of the pool area, which I was but take a closer look. Hubs was trying to imitate a covert Navy Seal tactic in the water. If you didn't notice him initially, I'd say he did a pretty good job! He was playing the part guys, he had his camo hat on and everything. I needed that strategy back when I was under the water, not now, LOL!

Here's to all-inclusive days and Hurricane cocktails! Truthfully speaking, a girl got spoiled by the all-inclusive perks - endless cocktails, being waited on hand-and-foot, room service etc., this is the good life baby or as Tico's call it "Pura Vida.", Heck, the fab perks wiped away all my memories of my wipe out!

Just another shot of the tropical pool area - so lovely and serene! It was so hard to leave and hard not to take pictures, it's like always photoshoot ready!!!.

On to our next stop, the lively beach town of Playa Coco!  We did finally leave the pool at our resort to get out to visit this beach and do some further exploration. We ended up here at Playa Coco (Coco Beach), also in the province of Guanacaste!  This town is really tourist-y and reminds me of the bustling boardwalks found on the beaches back home in Ocean City, MD and Rehoboth Beach, DE. The Tico's were really nice and it's a great place to purchase all types of hand-crafted goods & souvenirs genuine to the culture of the country and to experience an authentic taste of Costa Rican cuisine - raw and uncut. #SybilStreetSTYLe

In the pics above I was just standing on the beach in admiration of this view but of the awesomeness of God and His handy work. So when I seen this surf board around Coco Beach town saying the word GRACE, to me it further affirmed the splendor and kindness of our Lord (I embrace and am thankful for GRACE)!. Next, was just a cute little beachfront restaurant we stopped by. Then, we happened upon this colorful tree on the beach, and since I'm a colorific girl, inspired by pink, I had to capture it. Besides how often to do happen upon a tree that looks like something straight out of a Dr. Seuss book, Ha!
