We had a wonderful few days here with our two kids aged 10 and 14. We enjoyed just hanging out at our cabin (Toucan), watching the birds and the sloth outside the door. The horses were the best we've ever ridden and we had a very exciting ride through the countryside to an idyllic waterfall. The weather was a little cloudy but we still managed to see the tip of Arenal a few times. Breakfast was always entertaining with a big flock of parakeets coming to the feeders, plus the tame parrot. All in all a really great stay.

Most people come for the birds and flowers, but here we were greeted by one of Costa Rica's interesting mammals, the red-eared agouti (in the possum/raccoon family).

Let me start with the observation I made in the hot tub later this evening: this is the most relaxing vacation I've ever had. Booking this as a package deal a couple months ago, we did not have to worry about finding hotels (and what regions of the country we wanted to visit), getting a rental car, booking flights, or any of the rest of it. Packing last night was ...
... I rushed to the toilets and washed my foot and sandal. All ok. (I had visions of cement drying on my foot and never coming off, ever...)
The hummingbirds were amazing! They're definitely my favourite bird. I could've spent ages just watching them. The garden had little feeders, holding sugar water. So a constant supply of food means a constant supply of hummers. I must've taken 100 photos. :) Did you know that a hummingbird's heart beats up to 1000 times a minute? Or that ...
