Swimming 30:00 [2]

Interesting drive across to the Pacific coast past the volcanoes.
Final evening is on a nice quiet beach- well, except for the howler monkeys.

Been a good once-a-decade trip for a couple of biology-geek brothers, but sorry Bash and Miki didn’t get to enjoy it.

Hiking 1:00:00 [1]

Pics coming...

Early morning bird tour with the amazing guide. Despite Bro’s horror at the early hour, it was excellent. Saw tons more amazing birds, including the more reclusive keel-billed toucans, huge Green Ibis, boat-beaked herons etc,

Next up- a canoe trip in a second growth forest and lake- very peaceful, very lush. More herons and other spectacular birds. Just us and the spanish-speaking young guide.

Final stop up to a coffee plantation tour.
Almost 1000m up into the clouds. Very lush, different forest, phenomenal drop-off views to massive rapids, huge waterfalls- and good coffee.

Made it back to the lodge a bit early to hang out a bit.

Part 2 of the trip for my brother’s 50th. Travel from Arenal area to Chilamate in the Sarapiqui region- lower and more humid.

We had a more relaxed day with a jungle chocolate tour, and a pre-dinner stroll.

Bro’s able to rattle away in Spanish to taxi drivers and tour guides. I can understand lots, but can’t seem to come up with sentences.
