Mangrove boat tour

Great day in the mangroves

sunny 85 °F


After yesterday´s butt buster, this was an easy way to see another part of Costa Rica. Six of us in a flat bottomed boat cruising up the Sierpe River. Wildlife in abundance! Outstanding scenery! Just to quickly list some of wildlife we saw: Yellow crowned night herons, green back herons, macaws, osprey, white ibis, igrets, blue herons, white faced monkeys, squirrel monkeys, toucans, caymen, American crocs, three toed sloths, and turkey buzzards.

Sitting in the boat photographing all the different species was great!
