La Quinta was one of my favorite places to stay while in Costa Rica. The rooms were large with a large porch on the side. The setting was spectacular with great landscaping, ponds and gardens. In the morning they put out food for the birds and we saw so many gorgeous birds. They had a nice pool that was a bit cold and shady but felt good after a hot day. We did the tour of the leaf cutter ant farm they have set up on the grounds. It was well done and fascinating, not to be missed. It was the perfect location for our whitewater rafting trip on the Sarapiqui River, just a couple of minutes away. The meals were buffet style which I liked because I could pick and choose what and how much I wanted. Everything was tasty. I recommend this hotel.

This morning Rayner had told us that we could get up for a 6:30 am bird feeding at the hotel's bird feeder. I really wanted to sleep in, so I didn't plan on going. But then Mom knocked on our door and told me I should get out there. So I did.
I was really sleepy at first, but I was really glad Mom woke me up. The birds were amazing! The …
Estrella Lagoon Canoe:
This morning we had an even earlier bird watch, getting up at 5 am to leave by 5:30 am. But this time we were driving to a nearby lagoon for a canoe ride. It was in a lagoon that used to be the delta of the Estrella River where it entered the ocean. But a while ago there was a huge storm that drastically altered the …
Larry and I got up at 6:30 to go birdwatching with Rayner. It was actually just going to the courtyard of the hotel where they have a bird feeder made of dead tree limbs with nails in them. They put papaya, pineapple and plantains on the nails. When the man came out to put out the fruit the birds started putting up quite a racket. They knew what …
... we walked 3 hours, picked up lots of information from our guide and managed to see 2 new birds on our own.
On the way up the hill Miguel, the guide, picked up two stones and started hitting them together twice to make a clicking noise, waited a few seconds and repeated the 'clicks'. He was trying to attract the White Collared Manakin but as people were noisy they didn't come. When we returned through the same area on our own we tried the stone strategy. ...
... for the attack!
A little further down the river, we had the opportunity to swim which I was the only person to take up. It wasn´t really a proper swim because the water was too shallow but it was refreshing and a great experience to dip in the river in the jungle and the guide had PROMISED there would be no camen here!
Next, we headed to an archeological site of a steamship, whose wrecks had formed an island in the middle of the river. ...
