... well protected and hard to see from the overgrown path and given the number of poisonous snakes in Panama, it wasn't going to get poked with a stick to get a better view.
With the rain that had fallen, the trail back down to the Ranger Station was slow, slippery and hard going. Despite going slow, David still managed to upend himself and land heavily on his leg. How he managed to get his entire body horizontal at waist height will remain a mystery and the lack ...
... owns a tour company. He had three people booked on a tour to Volcan Baru (11), the local volcano, and it was only $59 a person if I wanted to go. So I signed up. The catch? The tour started at 2am. I had an early dinner, and an early night. One advantage of having the hostel to myself is no noise which makes an early night much easier.
So after about 5 hours sleep I got up at about 1.45am, grabbed my stuff and walked up the road ...
... a local farmer said we had less than an hour before the heavens opened and boy was he right. By the time we got to our hostel it was absolutely pouring and while it let up every so often it was off and on the rest of the night. Our hostel was run by some locals and a German and there were amazing Tintin murals on the walls.Due to the weather we didn't go ...

This place is like Switzerland!! Views in every direction. Cooler temps in the 70's during the day this time of year. Misty and cooler in the later afternoons. Clear skies at night. This place costs around $65 per night including a good buffet breakfast. The star of the hotel is a Toucan bird named Toucky. He has the run of the place, both indoors and outdoors. You can see from the pics that he likes to pose. He is worse than Trey. ;)
