          ... my teeth - Tony smiling, he loves the adventure. I hate it but get over and we finally make it to the lookout point. We were given a key to access the lookout and we walk through what looks like an abandoned garden. There is a stone table and chairs at the end. The view is lovely so I am glad I went. Had dinner in the hotel restaurant and set alarm so we could go on the walk to the waterfall before breakfast ...

Of this 150 km journey, Julie tried her first go at driving in Costa Rica, and apart from nearly falling off the road once or twice (to keep week away from oncoming traffic) was ok until we reached unmade roads when we swapped back.

Jason and I took a water taxi across to a nearby peninsula to start our way to meet them. Throughout the hour or so boat ride, we stopped a few times to see some wildlife. There were so many pods of dolphins swimming right ...

          ... along after that.

          Went back to Cristina's for our final dinner in Tambor. Visited with a young couple from Poland that were doing an exploratory trip around Costa Rica and there was so much they wanted to see!
