Today is tough, John and Jean left this morning we are leaving in about an hour, so sad to go. This is one of the most beautiful spots we have ever visited. The resort is in the perfect spot for visiting the Drake Bay area. We've made new friends, shared great stories, hiked , an seen wildlife that was completely new to us.

On the 27th, travelling alone, no John, Jean or Kyrss, I went to Corcovado National Park with a small group of other travellers. We hiked in the park to the Sirena Ranger Station stopping along to way to see howler monkeys, squirrel monkeys, macaws and tapir in the natural habitat. A lot of adventurous backpackers stay overnight at the Ranger Station in open air dorms or tents. Too many mosquitos, spiders, and other crawlers for my interest. The boat ride to and from the park was an hour and half. Both directions we were visited by spotted dolphins, but no whales. Kryss was on a hammock tour and John and Jean hiked to nearby waterfalls.

The 28th was a hammock tour day. Catching a few rays, early packing, making some internet reservations and making the decision to continue this trip until March 2nd. We're going to Panama on Feb 7th, but more on that later.

We will arrive at Ylang Ylang late this afternoon, so until then...via con Dios su amigos!
