... 40 minutes to climb down this unforgiving terrain that should have taken 15 with dry conditions. We get to the bottom and it feels like we have conquered the world. I'm feeling victorious until I'm told we have to go back up. I was certain someone one would end up impaled on a wayward stump on the way down. The beach is tiny and the lagoon is much larger from this vantage. Everyone except for 3 people jump in. After a 30 minute rest period and lunch, ...

It made me feel great to have supported an organization that not only provides great care to rescued wildlife, but also spreads the message about wildlife conservation. And I don't think there could have been a better guide than Carlos. His energy and enthusiasm were infectious. And he also taught us a Costa Rican phrase that we hadn't heard before - "pura vida."

As part of our package we were given vouchers for a Welcome Drink at the bar and it would have been rude not to use them. It was a pretty girly looking cocktail with red, amber and blue layers in a high glass. The top layer had some pretty mean Tequila in though and because it was drunk through a straw, it didn't hit you until the end.
