Today was the last day of our tour with Costa Rican Trails and I was genuinely gutted to say goodbye to such an awesome group of people ๐Ÿ’” Lucky for me I'm not heading home with the rest of the blogger group, because I'm now starting my own adventure in Latin America ๐Ÿ˜Š

For our last stop we stayed at Villa Blanca Cloud Forest Hotel & Nature Reserve, a stunning eco hotel in the cloud forest near San Ramon. We arrived to thick mist and drizzle, so I had no idea that such amazing views and rich greenery was awaiting me when I woke up ๐Ÿ’š๐ŸŒด

We had a nature filled morning exploring the hotel grounds. Hummingbirds, leaf cutter ants (which I have a new respect for after this trip) and meeting the cows at the hotel's own dairy farm. Such a cool experience - and a shame I couldn't stay longer!

Costa Rica is just so beautiful ๐Ÿ’š Our last stop in Arenal today was La Fortuna waterfall, and it was so worth the climb down ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ˜Š

Fun filled couple of days in Tortuguero at Pachira Lodge ๐Ÿ’š

There are no roads, so we had to arrive by plane and explore the area by boat and kayak. We've seen so much wildlife in the last 24 hours ๐Ÿƒ๐ŸŒด๐Ÿ™Š๐ŸฆŽ This morning I got my wish and spotted a little group of baby caiman (see if you can spot it in the photos), and while we were kayaking yesterday we saw loads of monkeys, birds, and a basilisk lizard.

But the absolute highlight was last night after dark, when we were able to watch sea turtles building nests and laying eggs ๐Ÿข AND we saw some babies hatching and making their way down to the sea ๐Ÿ’š We weren't allowed any lights except an infra-red torch so I have no photos, but the experience was absolutely incredible!

We're in the jungle baby! ๐ŸŒด๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿ˜Š

Hopped on a teeny tiny little 12 seater plane this morning to fly to Tortuguero on the Caribbean Coast ๐ŸŒด We're staying at Pachira Lodge, Tortuguero, and it's amazing being so close to nature. All I can hear is bird calls right now!

Spent the morning exploring Tortuguero and swimming in the pool surrounded by gorgeous tropical birds. Now we're off kayaking to see some more wildlife, and tonight we're headed out to the beach to see if we can spot some hatching turtles ๐Ÿข๐Ÿ’š Costa Rica is too awesome!

Naples is famous for its incredible, artisanal nativity scenes! When I visited last weekend with Aeroporto Internazionale di Napoli, I had a look down the Via San Gregorio Armeno, a road jam-packed with sculptors and artists selling the most amazing, detailed, and beautiful sculptures.

They're all hand made and painted, and in Arte Ferrigno I was lucky enough to watch some of the artists in action! #NaplesToday

Oh yes Naples ๐Ÿ˜

Day one done and it's been bloody amazing! Walking tour of the historic centre with the lovely Francesca, followed by a vespa tour of the city's best sites with NapolinVespa Tour. Seriously, is there any better way to explore Naples than by vespa?! It was so, so fun and we got some incredible views of the city and Mount Vesuvius ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น๐Ÿ›ต

All rounded by off by a genuinely amazing (and blooming massive) dinner at 50 Panino di Ciro Salvo. Pretty sure I'm going home about double the size, but it's definitely worth it! #NaplesToday
