Did it sell out? This date isn't listed on the CRQ page anymore...

I believe it is sold out :) Yesterday when I checked it said there were 2 spots available.
2 more weeks :) Can't wait! Where are you flying from?

I am currently living in Los Angeles, but I'll actually be flying into Costa Rica from NYC. How about you?

I'm flying from NYC too! I'm on the 9:20 am flight on Saturday, will get to CR 4:05pm.
I lived in West LA for 8 years before moving to NY last year, I really miss the weather! It's so cold here :(

No kidding? I grew up in NY and moved to California a little more than two years ago.

I leave out of Newark and I have a direct flight so I get to SJO at 1:30pm.

Have you bought the Adrenaline Pack? I haven't :/ I thought I would choose activities when I get there, you never know, I may find more interesting activities. I will def be doing the Canyoning/Rappelling, Ziplining, Hanging bridges and rafting. I'll decide on other activities once there :)

I didn't buy the Adrenaline Pack because I'm worried if I do that I can't do the Proyecto Asis activity.

We didn't buy the Adrenaline Pack either. I'm interested in the canopy tour, wildlife refuge, ziplining and possibly rafting.

Slightly disappointed that the volcano is no longer active, I guess there won't be any lava flows to see at night.

Oh well! I'm sure it will be fun no matter what activity we end up doing!
