Hot Springs, Horses and Zip Lines...Oh My!

Today was full of adventure. After a whirlwind breakfast, we jumped aboard el autobus de Meyer, and headed out on our two hour commute to the Wellness Gardens. We started our day with group horseback riding and got to figure out whose cabellos were "Natural Leaders," aka who wanted to be in front.

We rode our horses up the mountian and started our high speed zip-lining adventure. There were 10 sections/platforms on our zip-line course and they were all equally amazing, although the very first line was the best to watch. Everyone learned how to hook themselves up to the line and where to place your hands, and of course, how to brake.

There were a lot of screams, one hit tree and a lot of smiles and cheers. There were even some upside down zipliners and some who went without hands. After what seemed like an eternity sailing through the canopy (yet not nearly long enough) we landed back at base camp and enjoyed an amazing meal of authentic Costa Rican dishes.

Shortly after, we enjoyed massages and long soaks in the hot springs, as well as a quick dip in the local river, rapids and all.
