We saw: iguanas, fish, crabs, Halloween crabs (multicolored and so neat), herons, butterflies, and of course mangroves (red and tea).
Brendan got more pics...coming in 2 years when he develops them.
After kayaking, we ate tacos with new friends Shay and Greg who also stayed at our b&b. I miss them already! A big group of 10 of us went to dinner at a pirate bar on our mountain and then played cards against humanity...the Canadian version, which was so wild.
This morning we enjoyed a delicious breakfast and then had to say goodbye to tree of life cabinas. We had such a great time, and owners Ben and Nate are the perfect hosts. We planted a pineapple by the pool before leaving, a TLC tradition.
Maybe we can come back for another anniversary one day. I hope!
Up next, we were in the car for a day of driving. An hour in, we hit a standstill right before reaching parrita; we had to sit in the car for 66 minutes. Turns out, it was a protest. The taxi drivers were promised paved roads, and the government didn't deliver, so about 50 cabs blocked the road. Our drive ended up taking 7 hours, but it was very scenic, and we even stopped to check out these guys:
We found our next hotel near the beach, and we are pleased with our room, view, and resort. We ate dinner by the pool and had a good view of 2 howler monkeys (just like at TLC). It was a lovely end to our big road trip adventure day.
