Making our way to the jungle

As our time in Quepos started to come to an end we spent the last day hiking in Manuel Antonio National Park and cruising on a sunset dinner cruise. The park was great, lots of wildlife, toucans (see picture), lizards, hawks, racoons, and much more. Our guide was Roy Orozco, (check out his website, google him). What a great person, fantastic artist and guide. He spotted wildlife that others had missed and the other guides looked up to him all along the trails.
The sunset cruise was just our group. Twelve on the boat, cocktails, smooth seas, and great food. We came back to our casa and packed. A 6am pick up for Sierpe, CR.
The alarm went off and we headed to Sierpe, CR. In Sierpe we met the water taxi for an hour and half ride down the river, thru the mouth of the river and into the Pacific Ocean, along the coast line to the Drake Bay Wilderness Resort. (one of the pictures). We kicked back on our patio, enjoyed the sunset, sipped a few adult beverages and watched the stars pop out.
Today, we took the hammock tour. This is one of the resorts best ones. Lay in a hammock and do nothing. SIL Jean found a beautiful Conch Shell, that was still alive. She returned the shell to the ocean with some help from employees of the resort. Lots of photo ops here, hummingbirds, common blackhawks, large iguanas and macaws. Truly this is a wonderful wilderness spot.
