  • I was completely miserable and the scenery wasn't great. But the people there were pretty dank.

  • I met through the NPTC (national tourist award program). Almost all my life I've been adventurous. I liked the change in temperature, altitude, the difference to the breathing, the diversity of the flora. The different views... From the top you feel more than free. If you like nature, you must be here; This is something fascinating. That day I understood xq told you Gaby q should occur with the Chirripo chest... Jajajajaja... By the way, visit Fraijanes, volcano Poas, Irazu volcano, Arenal Volcano Tiquicia thanks!
