Years ago some friends and I went on an Earthwatch trip to help monitor sea turtles in Costa Rica. We flew from Miami to San Jose (Costa Rica), and from there we took a TINY plane out to Tamarindo. I've been on smaller planes since, but this was my first time going on an itty bitty little plane where you could feel every bump and turn. It was a little alarming at first, but once we got over the feeling of it we had a great time. The view from the plane was absolutely amazing. And when we arrived, of course we had an awesome time with the sea turtles every night!
