Thanksgiving in Costa Rica

Believe it or not, this is my very first blog post ever. {scary}  So, I thought I would write something about my trips to Costa Rica — since it’s one of my favorite places to visit.   My next visit is scheduled for November 22-26, 2010, which is the same week the USA celebrates Thanksgiving.  Why that week, especially since it’s one of the busiest airline travel weeks of the year?  Well, I can only take a few days off from the University of Utah since I’m relatively new there, and I figured I would take advantage of the two-day holiday and get back down to Costa Rica.

My first trip to CR was several years ago. I was invited by the CIO of Backcountry.com to come down and see their operation.   Since we were helping BC with their recruiting in the USA, they also had us assist with their recruiting in Costa Rica. That first year, we probably were involved with recruiting and hiring over 25 BC employees.  On that first visit, we went on a canopy tour to Turu Ba Ri. I did the superman ride and had a blast!

From that very first visit, I was hooked! I have made about 8-10 trips since then and have been able to see some beautiful sights — beaches, volcanoes, monkeys, and the rain-forest, just to name a few. I still would like to try deep-sea fishing at Jaco Beach one of these next trips.

So, we’ll see you very soon for a good old-fashioned Thanksgiving feast!
