... our last day that we escaped for a canoe ride on the lake and a short wander through the forest to find some wildlife'. It turned out most of the wildlife you see is from the main house, where a tapir, pecary and capybara hang out. A family of spider monkeys also kept us entertained constantly, initially as very cute 'guests' to watch outside but then they started to break into the kitchen to steal food any time our backs were turned.

The lady at the hostel ...
... some of the national parks around here and making this visit a bit of a waste of time, except that Nicky and Rod are meeting us here. So we walk into our hostel to find Roxanne eating her breakfast on the patio. Surprised to see her still here we sat down for a chat before checking in. Rod walked in shortly after, so there was more hugging and catching up to be done. Nicky wasn't due in till late afternoon so we went into the main part of town (a plaza and a few cafés) to ...
