We spent today in Puntarenas, a peninsula west of San Jose. What made us choose here, there was another direct bus from San Jose, and it was a pacific coast town.
The ride there was pretty easy aside from a little confusion at the bus station initially. It worked in our favor though so c'est la vie! Apparently there is a direct bus at the time we planned to leave. We traveled along a pretty major highway with tolls until we made our way through a ...

... the scenery must be amazing. The coffee plant starts producing berries, each of which contain two beans, at five years. The ushers then yield three crops per year. The type of coffee grown here is the Arabica variety as it is compact and can be planted close together. When the bush is fifteen years old, it is cut back hard, giving another five years of crops before being pulled out and replaced. All parts of the plant are used. The berries are ...

... that we decided to chill until the evening at the staff house and then go out to dinner. We picked a nice restaurant and I had a much needed meat meal of chicken in white wine with chips and a nice glass of wine and ice cream for dessert.

Got back to the hostel around 3:00am pretty ...

Morning consisted of my first Otter Walk to find the elusive river otter. Unfortunately we didn't see any, but we did find some signs they had been in the area by way of their scat (poo to you and me). We took measurements of the location of the scat and how far it was from both sides of the river.

Friday afternoon was spent updating my logbook and doing some of my diploma work. After dinner we had our Friday Night Quiz which my team won :-)

Woke up early to a tasty granola fresh fruit breakfast setting us up for our Monteverde wildlife walk. We caught the chicken bus higher to the depths of the rainforest where we walked two different interesting and varied paths and terrains. The animals we came across as we snuck through were Kotis, sloths, caterpillars, dung beetles, and other interesting bugs. We had an enjoyable ...
