Re: Are you back from Costa Rica?

Costa Rica is incredible for the variety of all types of shooting. My arm handled carrying the E 5, 50-200, EC 20 and FL50r for hours at a time even though I am pretty rusty and shaky still. My big mono pod broke the first day so it was hand held all the way. IS is probably the only reason i got any usable shots at all.

Driving there was as much as a hoot as everyone said too. Most of the time it feels like you are in a rally race with all the passing, shifting, pot holes etc.

Most of the touristy areas are pretty expensive but we found a few local joints with wonderful food and great prices.

I'd go back but do a few things differently now that I am more comfortable. I'd take fewer tours where I feel rushed and explore more on our own. We definitely didn't spend enough time in the 180 acres of rain forest connected to our resort and I always feel like I should have shot more.
