... A "tree" will produce 3 crops before it is cut down. The first and second crops have the highest quality, destined for exports. The third crop is for local consumption.
We stopped at a fruit stand where we tasted a palm peach, a local fruit the size of a lemon, that is cooked and eaten warm with mayonnaise! We also had a taste of the "ice cream bean", a long pod that contains seeds that you suck on to experience the flavour. Very mild.

... our pictures.

We were picked up at 6am and drove through the Cloud Forest to Moin where we boarded the boat for the 50 mile trip to Tortuguero. We stopped at a lovely outdoor restaraunt for breakfast.

And ok, maybe a bought a thing or two but really not much. Costa Rica is not near as cheap as I was hoping it would be.

Back to the hotel, moaned and groaned about ...

... we headed out in the dark with 3 others and our guide. Upon getting to the entrance of the national park we waited around for the green light from the ranger, and were finally told to head off to a numbered post, where a spotter had seen a green sea turtle. She was absolutely beautiful, much bigger than we anticipated and quite extraordinary. She had already buried her eggs, and was "camouflaging" where she covers her hole with sand from digging a second hole to ...
