Turri Town may occasionally be referred to as "Terrible," but I do have to say that it is a perfect, quiet, safe, country town. So the night life isn't all that great, who cares? The people are absolutely incredible. And you are surrounded by natural beauty at every corner.
Just today I was invited by my trainer to go to a CrossFit session in La Suiza (just outside of Turri). It was at his house in the mountains, and let me tell you.. the views were amazing. It was by far the best way to spend one of my last days in this part of the country. We got rained on, as is to be expected, and it only added to the experience. I was with other athletes who encouraged me and laughed with me when I slipped in the mud. It was one of those experiences you don't really expect. They just get brought to you, and you have to be willing to take them and enjoy it. I'd call it a true Costa Rica experience. It wasn't planned or structured. Just natural.
Fortunately I get to come back to Costa Rica in January for my internship :)
