Bahia Drake snoozes the day away

... route to watch a family of Hump Backed Whales in the water. The mother was feeding a calf. I was surprised to learn (and still can't really visualise it) that the mother does not have teats, the calf has to hit her with its fin to stimulate her skin which then secretes milk which is supposedly more like curd and floats in globules on the surface of the water. Luckily we had digested breakfast by this time.

After landing we hiked through primary and secondary ...

... an amazing place, very beautiful but with dark beaches, a long long way from anywhere in an unspoilt landscape of ocean and forest. As expected our accommodation is simple but adequate and it is probably the most relaxing place I have ever been. The hammocks are very comfortable. In fact some people don't even need hammocks – see last photograph! We want to take some trips but will say more about them in the next blog.


Corcovado or bust

A travel blog entry by cookcorn


... not much point making the effort really. I’m not quite sure how Willem got wet I think he was between me and Jan and just got caught out. Luckily for him it was only his shoes and not anything else but at the same time unfortunately for both us we were only halfway there so another 10kms walked in wet shoes, ho hum. It’s about this point where the ticks start to appear on the trail. They are tiny little suckers that are little more than specks when they ...

Outbreak Monkeys and Weak Handshakes

A travel blog entry by cookcorn


... Sierpe. An hours taxi ride from Hacienda Baru dropped us off at a riverside restaurant-cum-jetty. Before we’d even got out of the van the boat touts were on us asking whether we had a booking where were we going to. Some were more pushy than others but nothing too over the top. Our Cabinas had already organised places on the Chanchita for us so all we needed to do was find the captain. We arrived way too early so just sat around having a chat with ...

Where the Jungle meets the Ocean

... five degrees on the beach at the island so the rain may just cool things down a little. Rain has gone, now sat in the garden watching the monkeys playing in the trees. Wandered into the village for town and went in the Pizza restaurant (the options are quite limited) only to find they don't sell alcohol. Fortunately the supermarket was right next door, so you just pop in there when you want a drink. Pizza was very nice and finished another day. Nothing on tomorrow so we may even have ...

    When I decided to go to Osa I imagined an isolated bug ridden sweaty experience. Cabinas Manolo is amazing! I skyped with my credit card company from their place (in the jungle,) they have a very nice restaurant with great "naturales," a warm and knowledgeable staff, and clean clean rooms. I was very impressed.
