Costa Rica
From Rara Avis we drove further east to the Caribbean coast where we took an exciting trip on the Tortugero River to observe more wildlife. The Tortugero River is a series of canals linking coastal swamps. They were dug from 1966-1970 by logging interests. Our trip took 4 hours and went 50 miles upstream. It was very pleasant on the lancha, but very hot and sticky whenever we got off.
