We continued down the highway to Uvita. We read that Uvita has a population of 1,000 but the rain forest is so thick one would never know. The forest literally comes down to the beach.

It claimed it was only a 3km hike to the lagoon so we were joking about how the Austrian girls could have taken 2 hours to do it, especially after the first 1.5km only took about 15-20 minutes.
