In der Nacht hat es fast ununterbrochen geregnet (besser: geschüttet). Die Geräuschkulisse unter einem Wellblechdach ist beeindruckend ;-))). Der Regen hält auch tagsüber an und so entscheiden wir uns für einen Badetag. Dank Vulkan gibt es ja auch heisse Quellen und einige Badelandschaften Costa-Rica-Style. Auf dem Weg dorthin nehmen wir unsere …

... and then move on to more intense and longer ziplines. The ultimate thrill was the Superman zipline. This is a 1 km zipline where you soar high above the mountains head first, like Superman. It really felt like I was flying overtop of green mountains. It was like flying in a dream, only it was really happening. I really felt like I had superpowers. It was also fascinating to get a bird's eye view of the forest from the ...
