Monday Musings – Where Tapirs & Jaguars Once Roamed

I hope everyone had a nice weekend!

Last Monday, I shared a favorite recipe that my family loves equally whether in Costa Rica and the U.S.  It just works well in a hot climate or in cold weather.

This week I want to share something else that works well in both hot or cold weather – a great book!  Whether lounging in a hammock or curled up in front of a fire, you can’t beat a cozy read.

And what better topic than Costa Rica?  Especially when it’s for a good cause.

So for you fellow bookworms, I want to share that Jack Ewing (of Hacienda Barú and Monkeys are Made of Chocolate) has a great new book hitting the shelves soon – Where Tapirs and Jaguars Once Roamed: Ever-Evolving Costa Rica.  Like Jack’s other projects, the proceeds will benefit Costa Rica, specifically the Path of the Tapir Biological Corridor project.

You can pre-order the book here on Amazon, or learn more about Jack and contribute to their crowd-funding page here.

Brides & Grooms – Jack’s books are a great gift to get your guests excited for their upcoming travels for your wedding!

Enjoy!

Save the Americans

The Costa Rica Tourism Board’s ad campaign for 2015-2016 is “Save the American’s” and the video created for this is hilarious.  We have shared this on Facebook previously but wanted to share again today since we’ve been receiving so many phone calls from you freezing Americans 😛  Bad weather in the States means our phones start ringing so it must be pretty chilly up there this week!  No worries, you’ll be in Costa Rica soon and for now, enjoy this clip:
