Our Vacation at Rancho Pacifico in Uvita, Costa Rica

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.

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).

The amazing pizza at Piccola Italia in Uvita, Costa Rica
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.
