Costa Rica trip in early 1998
Made a short stop off in Mexico City on the way back to see my girl friend.
This was my second trip to CR and spent most of my time in Tamarindo.
These top pictures are from the beautiful Orosi valley behind Cartago in the highlands south of San Jose

Tamarindo is on the northern end of the Nicoya Peninsula.
My first trip in 1996 was to Montezuma on the south end of the peninsula
