Panqueques con banano at Rainforest Cafe and then off we (all 7 of us - Karsten, Rachel, Kari, Alicia, Nick and Cara) go on our canyoning adventure :) Met with one of our guides, David (hottie!). Around 20 of us on the tour which is quite a lot actually. Drove to our first stop and got all strapped in - even managed to get a special Go Pro helmet! Group photos and then off we go! Mini 25m one to start off with - ...

... and managed to nab a seat. Met a guy travelling from Montreal, Canada who works in aviation security. Heard about the giant freeze up in canada. Minus 35 C - what!?

... by leaves. We got some better opportunities on the walk back, though they seemed more agitated by our presence.

We saw a lot of butterflies and a squirrel on the walk before emerging onto an old lava flow (which looked a bit like a dry river bed, as opposed to the cooled flow I was expecting after the volcano hike in the Galapagos).

Good cabin, but the bathroom was clogged
