We had a really fun time with Jessica and Evan in the Monteverde Cloudforest Reserve. We enjoyed a view of Lake and Volcan Arenal from our mountain bungalow, hikes to waterfalls, and catching glimpses of Howler Monkies, rarely seen colorful birds such as the Trogon and the Quetzal, amongst other animals and critters. One of the coolest and most fascinating places we went was the Frog Pond where we saw and learned about a number of different species of frogs, some as small as my thumb, others were translucent. I now have a new found interest in frogs!
The next stop was of course, a beach. We headed out to the Nicoya Pennisula and parked ourselves on Playa Sୡra on the pacific coast for a couple days to soak up some sun. It was a really nice swimming beach but no surfing.
Since we are so hooked on traveling in real third world countries, we decided to head north to Nicaragua, stopping by a couple more dry forest parks along the way. Should be interesting. We don`t really have a plan but we do have 4 more weeks here in Central America.
oh, and a belated Feliz Auevo!
