After nearly eight months away from home we have to admit we were pretty excited to see some familiar faces.  Our friends Sue, Jill and Allie came to visit us in Sámara beach.  Located along the 130km of coastline that stretches across the Nicoya Peninsula, Sámara is just one of the many beaches that together make up Costa Rica’s most popular tourist destination.  We stayed up on the hillside in a jungle lodge overlooking themono ocean where we would watch monkeys swing through the trees just outside our rooms.  And when we weren’t hanging out on the beach, watching Sue and Allie’s surf lessons, hiking waterfalls or exploring the town we could be found relaxing poolside up at the lodge.  Evenings were spent watching thunderstorms light up the sky from our balconies (rainy season has finally arrived in Central America), dining at excellent beach-side restaurants and dancing salsa or mingling with other travelers at the open-air nightspots.  Unfortunately, the time flew by and before we knew it the girls were heading home and we were on our way to Montezuma beach.
