... to join up for Corcora Valley hike in the morning.
We woke early, all a little grumpy. We put rubber boots on, had heard that the trail was muddy. Dad, Annie and I went out to the main square, got some strong coffee, hopped in the old Jeep with Aaron, Ryan, Sagi and an older slightly irritating French guy. The ride to Corcora was bumpy but beautiful. So lush here, cool air, no rain, just perfect. The Brit Aaron had been here the day before and liked it so much he was coming back. ...

We stayed there, it was like a stone prison cell but somewhere to put heads down for couple of hours until daylight. ...
... jeep was filled with around 8-9 people, including some literally hanging off the back. Its a 25 minute journey out of the town and into the forest.
The hike is free and everyone scatters quickly to start the trek. We hang around at the base of the hill and opt to buy a coffee and arepa for breakfast. Jeeps (or Willys as they are known here) leave at 3,4 and 5pm. We are approached and offered a donkey ride to the Acaime (hummingbird house) but decline and opt to walk ...
