Kramer Law Group - May 2019



E xploring new places is a pastime my family and I greatly enjoy, and since we are starting to sit down and plan some upcoming summer trips, I figured all my readers might be doing the same. What better way to build excitement for warm summer days than to recount some nostalgic memories of the best vacation my family shared: a weeklong adventure in Costa Rica. For the last seven years or so, I’ve traveled to Costa Rica to attend a seminar to advance my knowledge of law and learn various trial techniques. I’ve periodically had sons and daughters join me for these trips in the past, but it wasn’t until recently that we were able to get the entire family there together. We ended up making plans to go the week before Christmas. We typically spend the month of December layering up our coats and shoveling snow, so we felt lucky to be able to escape the brisk temperatures and find some sunshine. On my last day at the seminar, I left during a quick break to pick them up at the airport. With eight of us on the adventure together, I had to rent a van to make sure we all fit! Once the seminar was over, we hopped in

would actually be, especially after spending the last few days soaking in the sun on the warm beaches. We reserved a small log cabin in the heart of the forest, which was a sight to behold. There was moss growing on the outside of the cabin, and there were skylights so we could see the trees towering above us from inside. While we had a hard time "WHENWEWEREN’T IN THE BEACH HOUSE, WE TRIED OUT TASTY LOCAL EATERIES AND SPENT TIME PLAYING IN THE SAND; NO MATTERWHAT WE DID ORWHEREWE LOOKED, THE SCENES SURROUNDING USWERE ABSOLUTELY PICTURESQUE."

getting a fire started (due to all the wetness) and spent the night feeling pretty chilly, our experience there ended up being the most memorable of the whole trip. To this day, all my kids still talk fondly about that cold rainforest cabin.

The next morning, we put on our rain gear and

ponchos for a ziplining adventure. Weaving in and out of the trees to take in the rainy landscape was like nothing any of us had experienced, and it’s still one of my favorite memories.

the van and continued to Playa Hermosa, where we’d rented a house next to the beach. It was an amazing place filled with lots of great activities. We spent a lot of time playing billiards

and swimming in the pool that overlooked the beach. When we weren’t in the beach house, we tried out tasty local eateries and spent time playing in the sand; no matter what we did or where we looked, the scenes surrounding us were absolutely picturesque.

While our journey in Costa Rica was certainly a unique and different way to prepare for our Christmas celebration, we came back to Utah with fun-filled memories we will never forget. If you ever have the opportunity to visit this beautiful country, I speak for my entire family: We highly encourage you to give it a try! You won’t regret it!

While there, we decided to take a trip to the rainforest as well. While we expected the rainforest to be, well, rainy, we didn’t anticipate how wet and green it
