Awoke at 5:30am, had breakfast at the hotel, took a cab to the bus station and was on the road by 8:00am for the Caribbean town of Puerto Viejo. Although as promised there was no air conditioning the trip was totally doable and the heat hit when we got off the bus. Our bags were taken to our hotel, Hotel Escape Caribeno and our rooms were little cassata scattered in a beautiful garden of lush perfectly groomed lush tropical vegetation. Adri said we need to be prepared to awaken to howler monkeys in the morning. The last howler monkeys that we awoke to was at Tical in Guatemala where we stayed inside the park on our Belize trip. Looking forward to la mañana for sure.
Tomorrow (6:30 am) we are heading out on a day long trek to a national forest with promises of lots of animal sightings. Will report back.
