... a warm sea, but here it was hot. The boys coped with it well, but I struggled with it.
The local woodcarver lived across the road. He lives in what was basically a wooden shed, with one chair and a mosquito net over a mattress. He was always ready for a chat when we walked past.
Early one evening whilst we were looking out to sea, Pete noticed some movement - there was a pod of dolphins in the bay. ...
... The people were very friendly. Nice beaches and warm water. Costa Rica was very clean compared to all other countries from Guatemala to Panama that has a terrible littering and pollution problem.
DISLIKES: All luxuries (alcohol, taxis, and restaurants) are very expensive. From a tourist viewpoint the culture is not nearly as rich or interesting to experience as its Central American neighbours to the north.
ENTERING COSTA RICA was not ...
... was misty over the mountains in the distance.l
The next day we headed back to Playa Preciosa to check out the nest again but were never able to get a clear shot of the birds. They would coming flying in very rapidly and with very little warning to give you time to get the camera up and into position. Still it was great heading up into the manglar as usual.
... you can access the national park proper from here, the Canadians have beaten out a series of varying length and difficulty trails in their own land, that encompass waterfalls, viewing points and of course the jungle and everything that lives there.
As it was already dark, and days of travel can take it out of you despte the lack of effort required we got on with some spag bol and called it an early night, well aware of the pre-sunrise alarm clocks tomorrow. ...
... When we got back we changed into long pants and put on more bug spray as the bugs were bad. We went to the main building and worked on blogs, pictures, facebook, email etc. until supper at 7:00. For supper we had fish with peppers and onions, zucchini which was amazing and mashed potatoes topped with coconut. It was all delicious. We had great conversation about travel with Matthew. Then we blogged and went to bed.
