After breakfast the birthday boy decided he'd like to go into the sea. They both had a great time jumping about in the really strong Caribbean waves, whilst Pete acted as lifeguard. They were swimming through the waves as they crashed in and had a wonderful time!

We finished up our time in Tortuguero with a night at a resort off of the main canal and further into the rainforest. This was a fancier place for sure, and the girls' eyes were popping when we got off the boat and they had welcome drinks for us-- just like Fantasy Island!
