          We like this place so much, we have been here 3 different times since our stay for 3 months in Costa Rica. The family who owns it are wonderful and service is amazing. Amenities include a pool and the hotel is just steps away from the beach with good waves for beginning surfers or for a lovely stroll on the beach. Sunsets are breath taking here as well.

          ... but it was closed, so we had to settle on a local restaurant, which did have a lovely view. We made our own sugarcane and that brought back memories of all the sugarcane we drank in Asia!

          While the day was fun and a different experience, it wasn't cheap. For the day, we paid $300 USD. Something we've been discussing a lot of during our time here is that Costa Rica is expensive compared to other places we visited during our ...

          ... He was holding onto the tree with his tail and balancing with his back legs. Was quite an experience for us to see!

          Watched him for about 30 minutes when he seemed to have gotten his fill and headed up the branch licking the insects off the branch and then down the branch and ambled off into the underbrush. Had he not been up in the tree, doubtful we would have seen him!

          ... and just soak up the attention. As an added treat, Julio joined us for part of the afternoon. Michaela - you asked, Julio is doing very well! Julio is a special needs child who lived here most of his life. He recently turned 18 and moved into the home of his soon-to-be adoptive parents. There's quite a story behind that (which I don't have time to elaborate on now). Michaela remembers Julio from her past trips, and when I (Mike) showed him a ...

It was good to talk to him and hear him say he misses me. That today would have been better had I been there. I do miss him, and Lola. I miss Lola more than anything. That little charmer is filling my heart when I see her!

          Off to sleep I go for tomorrow's adventure....

          ... bat, it is only found here in Costa Rica!" he announced.

          We all looked up at the same time and we found a tiny white thing attached to the palm leaf. A few pictures and we moved on. The trail was covered with so many dried brown leaves and it gave me the creeps every time I stepped. I was extra cautious and made use of my eagle eyes in case there was a snake hiding under the leaves.

          The two other Canadians and Luis went off the trail. We ...
