Simple but friendly retreat with little courtyard. Like a little community of it's own, just a couple of minutes walk from the main street with lively bars and restaurants.

Travelled by public bus for 3 hours and stopped off on the coast fro a boat trip along the canals. Saw 3 toed sloth in first tree, followed by others, and also blue heron, egrets, and lizards. Poured with rain after lunch and legs got soaked! Then picked up a mini bus to Cahuita- a lovely lazy town on the Caribbean …
... raining slightly, so we took our raincoats with us. Although by the time we got back, I realized that my raincoat was worthless. It’s about 5 years old and is no longer completely waterproof. Because I was wet underneath after we were done.
The bird walk was pretty cool. Although the first thing we saw was a mammal. And it was in the garden at the Inn. It was a large rodent called an agouti. Kind of like a small Capybara if you’ve ever seen those in ...

Manuel's parents don't speak any English, so this makes conversation very difficult. After a lovely lunch, it's 'adios' and back in the car to Casa de Lis, the rain at this point has ...
... It was close to midnight, and we all collapsed into bed.
We finished up our time in Tortuguero with a night at a resort off of the main canal and further into the rainforest. This was a fancier place for sure, and the girls' eyes were popping when we got off the boat and they had welcome drinks for us-- just like Fantasy Island! There were beautifully landscaped grounds, a big pool with a waterfall, and all of the buildings and walkways were raised up on stilts. ...
... not least was the Tarzan Swing, a 50m drop which you free fall into then at the last moment it swings you out and away from the ground. I was pumped but when i got out to the end and saw the drop my heart began to beat faster. I survived and the group was all stoked with the mornings tour. We got back to the office/gift shop and saw the next tour group rocking up which would have been about 30 people and would have taken ages to get everyone through, we were pretty happy we got ...
