... through the jungle to spot some of the nocturnal animals. The night walk was on a private reserve that was part rainforest and part banana plantation. The group was split into two smaller groups of 6 and our guide gave us each a flashlight. The first cool thing our guide found for us was a huge stick insect. Apparently they are very common in the rainy season but not this time of the year. I don't know how he spotted it as it looked exactly like the branch of the ...

An additional bonus on this trip........a ride on the ascensor to the passenger level of the ferry. Ascensor is ...

- Ficus trail. A few hundred metres from town is a small trail through some massive ficus trees, big enough to climb inside and up.
- Cerro Amigos. A few km from town and about 1:30-2hours walk up this hill to the tv towers atop. Great views of the valley and the Pacific Ocean from the top. Go early as the clouds always seem to roll in in the early arvo and the views were already getting bad as we started the walk ...

... wasn't too successful. Seems like I was a little early or a little late. But it was good to be in the surf again in warm water.

We decided not to walk through the state park because it was 1/2 hour walk there and back and two of our party walk with a cane and it seemed like not the best use of our hour there. It did mean that we didn't get to see the white faced monkeys. We saw a couple in a tree along the road.
