My trip to Costa Rica

So I recently got married in Costa Rica. We spent an entire month traveling around the country. I thought I'd share a few random photos.

We rented a giant villa on 66 private acres of rain forest. We got married on the property under this arch



The villa was absolutely amazing. Here is the view from the master bedroom


This is my favorite shot of the property. I took it just as the sun was coming up over the clouds


The house had an amazing infinity pool. Here's me (in the middle) and a couple friends enjoying the view


Here's a couple the photographer took of us down on the beach after the ceremony




The beaches were amazing and desserted. This particular beach had a random hammock hanging in the middle. Here's me relaxing


After we left the house, we traveled to La Fortuna to see the Arenal Volcano; one of the worlds most active volcanoes.
Here's a view of the volcano from the hotel in which we stayed


and the gigantic bathroom of said hotel room


Volcano started getting active one day


We did lots of cool stuff like Canyoneering



And hanging out at the hot springs


Trip wouldn't be complete without a Costa Rican McDonald's breakfast

Congratulations to you and your bride. We vacationed in Costa Rica last year. Stayed at the Springs Resort outside Fortuna and directly in front of the volcano. Looks like you did the zip lines as well. What a rush - 700 meters over the rain forest canopy! We also about four days at Manuel Antonio.
