    ... outside of the tree rather than in the ground. And when they get really old, they hallow out and it's just the roots. To get to the last bridge, you have to climb up through the inside of the tree! It was awesome! After the cloud forest tour, we went on a canopy tour-zip lines, repelling, and a Tarzan swing! The company we went with has Latin America's longest zip line cable! I think it was like 1.5 km or something. It was ...

In order to go, one needs to have a guide and there are not many guides who will guide the trip. So many years there are only ...

    ... to get between the two places - a bumpy, windy 6 hour bus ride, a 3 hour horseback trip but not in 'green' season or the fastest 'jeep-boat-jeep' option.

    We choose the latter option. It wasn't a jeep that picked us up, but it was a rather nice bus. We were taken back along the road we came to La Fortuna on but this time we were dropped at the lake. We carried our bags down to the shore and put them on a small launch which took us across ...
