Pura Vida!

Mmmmm… my chocolate tour was delicious. Though I did fall and skin my knee… oops. Anyways, back to Tortuguero…

On our second day, we went on a boat tour of the canals in the Tortuguero National Park. Our fantastic guides, Sergio and Ricardo, were able to show us some of the nature that Costa Rica has to offer. Amoung the many pieces of flora and fauna seen were caimans, iguanas, howler monkeys (surprisingly small for how loud they are), and baby great blue herons!

Sergio was kind enough to brave the virgin forest for us and caught us some frogs. We had a great day, and finished it off with a great dinner and a refreshing dip in the pool.
