    Escape from the jungle

    January 25, 2019 in Costa Rica ⋅ ⛅ 29 °C

    Up at dawn, breakfasted, packed, checked out and on the boat by 8.30! Ah hour and a half later we arrived at the boat terminal to find no bus waiting. It turned out one broke down so a second bigger bus picked up all the 'incoming' so was 30 min late getting to us. Not so bad though as it was a more comfortable ride and we made up time on the rough road. We stopped for lunch and there said goodbye to our guide before being dropped of at the car hire depot.
    We have a big 4 wheel drive Hyundai with an Internet 'hotspot' included which makes finding our way very easy!
    We reached our next stop 90min later and found tea making facilities in the rooms much to Chris's delight! After a drink and a snack we retired to the rooms and watched the first half of 'The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society' before turning in early again as we wanted to be back in the jungle by 7 at the latest next morning.

    Tirimbina Reserve

    September 27, 2017 in Costa Rica ⋅ ⛅ 30 °C

    Tirimbina Reserve: Lunch was served here, and was delicious as always! Then we walked in the rainforest, including the longest hanging bridge in the country. We saw lots of wildlife, including the little poisonous frogs and a small, coiled viperous snake in the path.Read more

    La Tirimbina

    March 20, 2015 in Costa Rica ⋅ ⛅ 33 °C

    Nach einem guten Frühstück steht am nächsten Morgen der Tirimbina-Nationalpark auf dem Programm. Das Faultier, was uns gleich am Anfang begegnet ist nicht so kooperativ und zeigt uns nur seinen pelzigen Rücken.
    Auf Hängebrücken geht es hinauf in die Baumkronen des Nebelwaldes, ein Erlebnis, auf das wir schon voller Vorfreude gewartet hatten. Und so schauen wir dem Regenwald im wahrsten Sinne des Wortes aufs Dach und erleben die grüne Pracht von oben... :-)
    Riesige Farne und Stelzenwurzeln beeindrucken uns. Das Leben in den Baumkronen, auf das wir gehofft hatten, ist allerdings nicht zu sehen...
    Ein kleiner nur ca. 5 cm großer Pfeilgiftfrosch läuft uns aber über den Weg. Und ein Aguti, ein kleiner einheimischer Nager. Weder Frosch noch Aguti sind allerdings besonders kooperativ beim Fotografieren.
