¡Hola Familia! This is Summer and Anabell and we are your Líders Del Día today! We will keep it brief tonight as we were surprised with a farewell party by our gracious hosts and staff : )

Today we had a late wake-up and breakfast at 9:00 am. Afterwards, some of the group went to the park for games of soccer and volleyball. Lunch was a hearty meal of beef stew, rice, and mashed potatoes. At 2:00 pm Carla, our friend from Florita Farm came to speak to us about Costa Rica’s history, culture, and natural resources. After saying thank you and goodbye to Carla, we again went to the park to play with the locals and take our last trip to the store. For dinner, we dressed up in our formal attire and were surprised by a beautiful setup by our awesome hosts!

Today was a perfect closing to our time in Aquiares. We were all surprised with an amazing dinner setup of lights, balloons, candles, music, and delicious nachos with various desserts. After eating, we all took lots of pictures and said a nightly farewell to our wonderful cooking and cleaning staff who have made us feel at home these last two weeks. They deserve so much appreciation for making us all feel comfortable and loved. We will certainly all miss them!

Can’t wait to see you all back at home very soon! Stay tuned for tomorrow’s blog.

All the best,
Summer and Anabell.
