Where I stayed
There were quite a few birds including a couple of colourful Fiery Billed Aracaris high up in the trees but we were a little disappointed that we didn’t see more although it was nice just walking through the park. We made our way back to the car but on the way stopped in a sushi bar (not what we would have expected) that was on the road out of the park and had a small snack and a well earned drink. Back in the town we bought two cheap T-shirts to change into. The exertions of the walk had taken their toll and we did look a mess. We caught up with the boys who had taken the complimentary bus from the hotel in to town, on the beach. The palm trees on the beachfront were filled with the squawking of parrots as they bickered and flew about.
After lunch we took ourselves back to the hotel and decided to do the trail. This turned out to be much more productive than the park and we ended up seeing a large troupe of white-faced monkeys in the trees in the hotel gardens.
The boys ended up doing tennis again and then we all played on the crazy golf course in the hotel, a family tradition. That night the meal was a surf and turf BBQ and it was superb. There was lobster, tuna, steaks, kebabs and mahi mahi.
