Working a Costa Rica Adventure
My own Costa Rica adventure began almost a year ago when I came here for a Week of Rivers guided adventure vacation with Costa Rica Rios. It was such an amazing experience, kayaking in warm clear water, seeing the brilliant blue morphos flashing through the trees around us, waking up to the exotic chorus of birds, insects and monkeys at the jungle camp… by the end of the week I didn’t want to leave! So when I heard they were looking for a new office intern here in Turrialba, starting just as I was finishing university, it seemed like the perfect opportunity and I jumped at the chance to come back.
My first couple of weeks here have been amazing! Everyone is so nice, it’s like I’ve been adopted into a big new family and they are all teaching me so much. I’m learning all about the language, the music, the food, the culture… and the guests are awesome too. It’s fascinating to hear the stories people bring, from so many different places, of such crazy adventures. But still the best thing for me is that when I’m not working, I can go kayaking. We had some extreme weather last week so I even got to check out some new rivers with high water – perfect!
Today the sun is out for the beginning of the holiday season; the schools will all be finished in a few short days, the special Olympics are being held in town next week, and soon after that will be the Christmas parades. It is also the peak season for travelers so things are starting to get pretty busy around here! As well as our signature guided tours: Week of Rivers and Week of Adventures, we are also working on lots of custom adventure vacation tours, and a new range of Costa Rica adventure honeymoon packages. I can’t wait to meet all these new people and help create more perfect adventures.
