Elizabeth’s Secret Garden Living in Arenal, Costa Rica

Come follow me to Arenal, Costa Rica for my 3 month adventure. My plane lands in San Jose on Feb. 14th. I will be living with my mom and siblings in a small village near Arenal Volcano. The village overlooks Lake Arenal and the Arenal Volcano. The Arenal Volcano pictured below measures about 5,358 feet and is estimated to be less than 7,000 years old. It is considered Costa Rica’s most active volcano.

My future blog entries in Costa Rica will start on February 18, 2011. I will document my adventurous explorations, photographs of exotic wildlife, and starting an agricultural project for SHAPE International . I will also be blogging about people I meet, community service projects, and daily living in Costa Rica.

Below is a preview with some photographs along with a video that depicts the adventures of Costa Rica. I encourage you to become a follower and check in weekly for updates.
