We've had some great experiences over the last few days here in La Fortuna. On Tuesday, we did a river boat safari along the Rio Frio in the Caņo Negro area. Before heading out on the boat, we made a stop at an iguana sanctuary where we got to see some absolutely massive iguanas. While on the boat, our guide was fantastic at pointing out numerous types of birds. We saw storks, snake birds (they actually look like snakes when the are swimming in the water!), kingfishers, vultures, and ...

... told Brian to make sure he used the handles to brake. They told me not to worry about braking and just make sure I tucked my knees so I would make it to the other side each time. I went fast enough and made it to the platform each time. Hurrah for that!
Although the lines with the view of the lake and volcano were great, the best one was the one where you went through the rainforest canopy.
