Costa Rica Ultra-lite Adventure
Submitted: Feb 28, '07
Great Travel Moment
Where can you rappel from waterfalls, zip across the top of a rainforest canopy on a cable, kayak to a remote island, ride in an ultra-lite plane, enjoy hours of class four whitewater rapids, and have world class meals all in a week? Costa Rica. Our accommodations in Playa Samara were at the Flying Crocodile a resort purchased by a German family because it had a runway to operate an ultra-lite plane. Built around the runway is a beautiful resort, with unique bungalows and a family-style environment. Finding the Flying Crocodile was a challenge, as we drove several miles down a dirt road in total darkness, only to run into a river which we could not crossour would not attempt to cross. We approached a house on the road that had a light on, and the owner told us that we could go back and go a different way.
