Today we had wake up at 5:30 to be ready to leave for our rafting trip at 6:00 am! We were picked up by two buses, one with Roberto and the other with his hilarious brother Daniel. It was about a 2 hour drive through the mountains to the Pacuare River. On our way we drove right through a volcano! We also went through a cloud forest and saw " …

Apologies for a late final post! I was a bit of a zombie on the journey home and would have rambled more than normal. Left Costa Rica more than a week ago now, but wishing I was still there. It was tough coming home and facing the real world... Not that life is too rough at the moment, down in busselton finishing off my elective with a family …

We took some tandem kayaks out and explored a small side channel, and then had more pool time.

The rain started up that evening and kept on through the next morning until it was time for us to leave. We had an hour ...

... we were part of only visit 5 miles of the beach. We were very privileged to have seen this spectacle and just hope some of the babies make it back to the sea. Out of the 120 eggs only 1 or 2 make it to adulthood. After surviving two months in the sand nest without being dug up and eaten they then have to walk down to the water and swim for eight days to the Sargassum sea where they then start to feed - not an easy start to life. We returned back to the hotel tired and soaked but ...
