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 ...

Back to the hotel, moaned and groaned about ...
... at the information booth for our turtle viewing tour. The green turtle, one of the biggest species of sea turtle, comea to Tortuguero every year to lay her eggs on the beach. The remoteness of the place makes it a perfect nesting ground.
Armed with nothing but a rain poncho (cameras, mobile phones and torches all strictly forbidden), we set out to walk to a meeting point, where we would wait until the turtle spotters' signal that a turtle had been found. ...
... a fun adventure we'd all remember. The new bus showed up and we transferred all the bags and got back on the road. They also sent another boat to meet us at Cano Blanco, since our first boat was long gone by then.
Our originally scheduled breakfast stop became a quick bathroom break and a chance to visit another butterfly garden. I loved the shrimp flowers and passion ...
