... for some of our newly made acquaintances, hike across a bridge and to a village for the bus to take them back. We packed, and discovered several miniature scorpions (babies?) attached to our ponchos. We would have carried them back to the USA if we had not been careful. We had to wait a until 11AM to board the rafts , and once we finally got on, we had to stop and wait which was annoying. The few big rapids we did were ...

There are only two daily buses to Monteverde and we didn't fancy the
idea of trying to make the 6am one so we took the chilled approach and
hung about till 230pm.
