After a few nights in Manuel Antonio, it was time to move on to Uvita. Ivy and I stayed behind while Lesley and Vivian took a quick walk through the forest preserve behind our lodge. Not long afterwards, Vivian and Lesley came running back, shouting, "We saw squirrel monkeys!" Squirrel monkeys (or "titis") are the smallest and rarest of the four …
We watched the first half of the Super Bowl at our favourite restaurant & bar, El Gran Escape, with the usual fishermen. At half time, after watching Tom Petty, we headed back to Las Cascadas to take in the second half with Lonnie & Maureen, travelers from Streetsville, Ont. On Tuesday this week we left our "home away from home" and went to the La …
... woken in the morning by howler monkeys and some chattery little birds which we have named 'Caitlin & Missy' birds as they are very vocal in their chattering!! We booked our boat trip for the first morning and went to meet Ronald our guide for the morning. We got in his car which towed the boat down to the sea and launched it on the beach. Ronald said that he couldn't promise we would see whales but would show us other things ...

We spent like 5 hrs. in the park with Juan and his girlfriend (God I never got her name!) and when we decided to go back, we stopped by a restaurant close to the bus stop (Uvita - Dominical) and had something to eat and some refreshments. We saw the bus at 5:12 ...
... sunburned. Like really, really freakin red. As soon as I got back today my host mom called me her langosta pobrecita (poor little lobster), and cut some aloe leaves from the garden and smeared it all over me. She gave me a whole little jar of fresh aloe to use, and I am so grateful because it really hurts!!
I know I am probably forgetting a lot, but I am super tired from all the sun and ready for bed!

One of the most beautifully located lodges I've seen in three months in Costa Rica. You're staying the midst of a private reserve, and won't see or hear anyone other than other guests and staff. Monkeys, birds and other wildlife abound. The Pacific views are fantastic, and it is a ten minute walk to either the beach or a spring-fed pool in the forest. The restaurant is a little pricey, but the food is good and a little more interesting than the Costa Rican average. This is a genuine eco-lodge, so the accommodations are simple, but very clean and comfortable. One of my favorite spots to simply be, without the necessity of doing anything other than watch the ocean and listen to the birds.
