Looking for a way to top all of the adventures we had in Arenal and Manuel Antonio, we decided to bungee jump off the old bridge over the Colorado river. It was definitely one of the highlights of the trip and a I even gave a shout out on video to the World champion Baltimore Raven's before I jumped. www.bungee.co.cr/
... and lots of wildlife too). On the way home, we passed howler monkeys shrieking in the trees and even saw a couple of Toucan - which Robbie was very pleased about.
While we were on our trip, the guide was talking to us about tourism in the region and how the government was trying to promote eco-tourism in the jungle. There were really very little tourists in this area and we knew before arriving that it was off the beaten track due to the difficulty ...
