A day in Cartago

This weekend I finally decided to visit the charming city of Cartago.

To enjoy the sun, I woke up early, and I was there at 9:00 am, with a fantastic weather! Walking in the streets, I went to the famous ruins which are really nice, but above all, I discovered the amazing Basilica and it is the most beautiful piece of architecture that I’ve seen in Costa Rica!! That was a great day, despite of the rain in the afternoon!

Monteverde Weekend

Happy birthday Antigua!!

This is the part of the year I like more as my hometown is celebrating another anniversary!

I like to watch all the activities during these days, the “gigantes” dancing in the streets, the main square full of people, the fair, but the thing everyone enjoys is the parade specially because it passes in the corner of my house.

I just want to say: HAPPY BIRTHDAY ANTIGUA! From a proudly Antigueño!
