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
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
