First Day in Costa Rica
I woke up at 3:00 a.m. and got to the Lafayette airport at 3:45 a.m. We had no issues flying to Houston. However, our flight to San Jose was delayed twice. We had to fly around once we got there because there wasn't an open landing strip. There were four flights landing ahead of us. Once we landed, we waited in the customs line for 2 hours. We also got stuck in traffic because of contruction on a bridge. We had an hour long orientation to complete insurance information and receive an overview of the itinerary for the rest of our trip, education on exchange rates and Costa Rican currency, and safety procedures in the hotel and around San Jose. I'm really excited to start exploring the country tomorrow.
