    Moving on in Monteverde

    January 23, 2017 in Costa Rica

    Last night we ate again in one of the cheapest and best restaurants in town - this time I had rice without the beans, for a change! This morning we said goodbye to our hotel with coatis on the balcony. We’re still in the Monteverde area but today we moved accommodation to a place that has it’s own little reserve with nature trails – a place called Valle Escondido (hidden valley). On the way, we visited a ranarium (frog centre) in Santa Elena town, where we saw various Costa Rican amphibians with an informative guide. This afternoon, Solana made a new little friend, Lila, who turned out to be the daughter of the owner of the hotel & reserve. Solana is taking everything in and asking some good, and also some amusing, questions along the way. The other day, on our way to Monteverde, we passed some mountains and we were talking about volcanoes – she then asked “Are we on Venus now?”! We have just been on a night walk along the trails with a guide – we didn’t see as much as we’d hoped but we did see more coati, agouti, leaf-cutter ants and a stick insect. Hoping for better wildlife spotting tomorrow....Read more

    Kinkajou Night Hike

    March 30, 2016 in Costa Rica

    In order to see the night-active animals as well, we went on a night hike in the kinkajou reserve. Thanks to our awesome guide we didn't only see some sleeping hummingbirds and tucans, but also a sloth (Faultier) with her baby, two different kinds of vipers, scorpions, a beautiful owl, tarantulas and even the rare kinkajou (Wickelbär). Unfortunately, the amardillo (Gürteltier) our guide had spotted was too fast for is, so we didn't get a look on it.Read more
