Hotel is in a beautiful setting with hot springs that are delightful for soaking. The staff are very kind and helpful. We went to dinner last evening in their open-air restaurant, but there was a glitch: the chief and the one waitress had not shown up for work as scheduled. No problem, the front desk staff person took care of us and we had a wonderful sea bass for dinner. The chef finally arrived; it was a communications problem she said. The waitress never did show. Despite these glitches, which we chalk up to being part of the Costa Rican experience, we had a delightful evening and stay at the hotel.

... we had gone for a swim in the waterfalls downstream calm waters! Having to walk back up to the top for our canyoneering transport, we faced 500 steps along with Costa Ricas newest jungle river... It did not stop raining and this walk up was a real challenge, with us not quite differentiating between sweat and rain! Once at the top we got in a taxi and were whisked off to a remote location further into the rainforest! We now understand why it is called a rainforest - ...
... to the start of the river. We saw some deadly little frogs called the Strawberry Frog, and we steered clearly away from them. As we got in the river, I got a cold butt from the water. It was worth it though. We started out a little scared, but as we hit the rapids, we couldn’t think of anything besides staying in the tube. We went down so fast, it was over in a blink. I was a bit disappointed, but we did the river one more time. This time I fell out of my tube because I ...
... doing it on bikes. We set off along the flat road and pound out the 2km home. Stop in at the shops as we are starving and head back for a massive meat, veggies and pasta feast. We sit back and enjoy the slow cooling down process as an elderly traveller sits down and we have a chat about places to go etc. But he's a bit of a weirdo trying to sell us the benefits of drinking natural products and plants and that we don't need medications etc. Mum and Dad, you know how this would ...

This reminded me of the time I went to a zoo in Miami that had lots of tropical birds, including parrots and macaws. I remember at the time being amazed and excited to see all the beautiful birds. And my mom and I even bought a picture of us holding some macaws. But after Carlos' stories, I actually felt ashamed of enjoying that experience. He made me realize that animals aren't meant to be in captivity. I understand the reason for zoos, ...
It has been a month of many changes for us here. The weather has slowly been shifting over from the dry season to the rainy season. We can no longer count on sunny blue skies day after day. It will frequently cloud up in the afternoon and we will have long hard rainstorms that send mud flowing through the streets. We have been trying to get in the habit of bringing raincoats with us when we leave the house, and getting the laundry out to dry is ...
