Went back to Banana Azul Hotel near Puerto Viejo for two nights - nothing too spectacular to report there except more amazing food, great staff, great room and a very relaxing time (highly recommend Banana Azul even though Puerto Viejo is a bit of a shite hole). Neil and Jess came to stay on the Friday night - great to have their company and I think they enjoyed being spoilt (even if it was for just one night). Neil and I went on a photography expedition but it didn't prove too fruitful. We could hear a bunch of howler monkeys but couldn't find them. Found a heron or two in the river. No armadillos to be seen (I had seen a dead one a few weeks before - somehow it had managed to get itself squished on a road where there are a maximum of 5 cars per day - let's face it, that's ridiculously bad luck and his time must have been up poor little buggar) - would have loved to have seen a live one and they're definitely in the area (or perhaps the last one had been run over - nooooo!!!).
