Honeymooning in Costa Rica – Day 1 Liberia

24 hours ago I was sitting next to my bride in her wedding dress under the stars back home in Colorado. Now we are in a small room at Marlene’s house in Liberia, Costa Rica, starting our new life and our honeymoon. Last time we came to Costa Rica was 2 years ago when we first started dating and we stayed at a resort in Puntarenas which was very nice with the limited amount of time we had. This time we are staying in airbnb’s and touring the country. So far we are totally pleased with the experience. Marlene’s taxi driver picked us up at the airport at 9pm and dropped us off at her house before 10pm. Marlene is working with the rental company to get the car dropped off to us tomorrow morning. She welcomed us at the door with hugs and congratulations. It’s not the honeymoon suite but it comes with wifi and a homemade breakfast. Tonight is the only night we are staying with a host in their home, the rest of the nights we will be staying in a guest home or a whole house provided by the host. It will be nice to have a place to ourselves, but tonight, being greeted by a friendly face who I had been communicating with via Airbnb feels like we are visiting a friend.
