      ... descent down the trail. We had been hiking for about 2 hours by now and starting to fatigue after yesterday's hike. And after another half hour, still no sight of anything except a few birds. And just as we mention how disappointed we are, we hear a very loud noise running through the bushes and then it stops when we stopped talking. We freeze and look in the direction we heard the ruckus, but we can't see anything through the thick plantation. And after a ...

Our guide proceeded to play the call of the Common Potoo on a speaker, as a potoo called back from across the river. Before we knew it, the potoo landed in a nearby tree where we were able to get a good look at it.

      Today we left Ofir in San Jose, and Ali, Yav and I got a bus at 6am to Monteverde, which is a cloud forest reserve in Northern Costa Rica meaning it has 100% hummidity and lots of amazing plants and animals. We arrived around midday and were attacked off of the bus by hostel workers, enabling us to secure $12p.n private tripple for $5 each. We signed up for a Canopy Zip lines ...

      ... was designed like a Tica village - Tica is a term that Costa Ricans use to describe themselves. The hotel was in the Tirimbini Rainforest Reseve. The National Parks cover about 23% of Costa Rica, but their entry points are managed by private companies, which is where it gets really expensive. Even though we were staying in the reserve in Sarapiqui, we still had to pay US$15 each for the privilege of walking their trails.
