Hoy es el último día en Costa Rica. We have that mix of nervous energy and sadness whenever we’re leaving to head someplace new.

Yesterday we drove from Monteverde around Lake Arenal and then to Alajuela, where we spent today doing some quehaceres, catching up with Christina, and watching a little World Cup.

Here are some photos from the past couple days. See you in Tulum!

 

Monteverde Cloud Forest

Monday morning hike in the Monteverde Cloud Forest Preserve — we were too late to see birds, but we did see some pizotes

 

Birds of Paradise Monteverde

One of the things that’s pretty amazing are the big, old trees: they have hundreds of other plants growing on them

The only photo I took on our night hike was of this little lady tarantula — we also saw some cool birds and bugs

 

Volcan Arenal

Volcán Arenal shrouded in clouds — the drive around Lake Arenal was lovely and this was a great finishing touch

 

Tamara Christina Chris

Our friend Christina came to stay in the same hostel as us before she set off to visit other friends in the area
