End of day at La Postita...
After a long days adventure, enjoy a hot shower, sit down and relax on the deck, a cold beer in hand. The view is a blend of coffee plantations and country roads meandering to the valley below. Listen to the whispers of the evening breeze and distant muffled roar of the wild Reventazón River. The sun eclipses the hills of the Turrialba Mountains -- their shadows enhance the peacefulness of the moment -- the laughter and conversation of your friends, faces bathed in the golden glow of sunset, lift their glasses and pay tribute to a wonderful days end.
