... were steps, half were missing or broken. We persevered in the rain hoping that it wouldn't just be another waterfall - we've seen quite a few in our time. Thankfully, it was a little different to the standard water falling over a cliff edge, the water was flowing left and right and back again as it bounced it's way down steep rocky slope into a small pool at the bottom.
On the way back up the path David noticed what he thought was a snake at the side of the path. ...
... 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.

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.

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. ;)
