Kejda and I recently returned from ten days in Costa Rica. For the majority of the trip, we stayed at a resort named Rancho Pacifico, in the coastal town of Uvita. While Kejda was not a fan of the capital city of San Jose, just about everything at Rancho Pacifico was awesome.
Here some of the photos I enjoyed taking. Click the photo for the full resolution images.

This is where Dan and Sarah, a newlywed couple we were lucky enough to meet and spend time with, stayed for their seven days at Rancho Pacifico.
This was Kejda's view as she enjoyed a hot rocks massage at the Rancho Pacifico spa.
On the property of the luxury resort Rancho Pacifico is a one kilometer hiking trail which loops down to an amazing waterfall on the Cortezal River (Rio Cortezal).
A worthy reward for a challenging hike down from the Rancho Pacifico resort.

A slice of pizza from Piccolo Italia. For our money, this pizza was better than any pizza we've ever tasted in our hometown of New York City. Seriously amazing. The owner, Marcello Sauda, is originally from Brescia, Italy -- and now lives with his family close to the wonderful beaches of Uvita.
