Adventures in costa rica

Adventures in Costa Rica

By Aleena Jilani


Language

  • Spanish is the main language spoken by Costa Ricans

  • Some Costa Ricans in the big city of San Jose speak English, but not in the villages that we visited

Language….


Money

  • Costa Rican money is very different from the money in the United States

  • For example: the plate of fries was about 3000 dollars and the plate of spaghetti was about 8000 dollars

  • That isn’t actually much in Costa Rican money!

  • In Costa Rica 500 dollars is 1.00 in American money

  • So the plate of fries was 6.00 and the spaghetti was 16.00

Money


Nature

  • The ‘La Fortuna’ waterfall was really pretty – it took us about 400 steps (up and down!) to get to the waterfall so that we could swim

  • We saw people who tried to get to the bottom of the waterfall but the current was too strong

  • It was an amazing experience subhanAllah!

Nature


Nature1

  • There are 112 volcanos in Costa Rica, but only 5 of them are active, including Arenal, the one we visited

  • We got to collect rocks that had lava marks on them

  • There were also many nice plants including one that was designed by leaf cutter ants

Nature


Flowers

  • The flowers in Costa Rica are really pretty, there must have been over a hundred different types of flowers!

  • Our favorite plant was a flower that we called the ‘monkey plant’

Flowers


Animals

  • Everywhere we turned, there was a tropical creature around us

  • We saw lots of iguanas, butterflies, and brightly colored birds, including blue birds

  • We got to visit a farm of a 102 year old man who still lives without electricity!

Animals


Adventure

  • We got to go zip lining through the rain forest, including getting to swing like tarzan!

  • We went horseback riding to get a great view of the Arenal volcano

  • We took a rafting boat trip up the San Ramon river, close to the Nicaraguan border, where we saw lots of animals including monkeys, a snake, sloths, a tucan, a hummingbird and crocodiles, just to name a few!

Adventure


Fun learning

  • We took a tour through a cocoa farm and learned about the lifecycle of a cocoa plant to understand how a cocoa bean turns into delicious chocolate

  • We also got to see vanilla bean plants, chili pepper plants, and more monkey plants!

  • We got to shake, smash, grind, mix and taste the wonderful cocoa bean we made into chocolate

Fun Learning


Beach

  • Costa Rica is filled with black sand beaches because of the underwater lava from the volcanos

  • We went to the coast of the Pacific ocean (for the second time)

  • We played on the beach by jumping the waves and doing kartwheels across the sand

  • It was 90 degrees here while it was -20 degrees at home in Michigan

Beach


Gratitude

  • Costa Rica reminded us of Allah (SWT) beautiful creation that we should always respect

  • Even though we were on vacation, we still remembered to thank Allah (SWT) for the opportunity to see and experience new places
