Kate Desvenain managed a variety of successful tours as a Smithsonian Journeys Program Manager before following her dreams to Costa Rica. There, she and her husband are building a bed and breakfast from the ground up while getting used to life in the jungle.
Ten years ago, before we had met, my husband purchased a piece of property in southern Costa Rica with the hope of someday building a small resort. Last year, we decided to take the plunge and attempt to make that dream become a reality. We’ve lived in Costa Rica now for six months, and each day brings new surprises.
