This a panoramic shows the tombolo (sandy strip) within the park that connects the mainland to Punta Catedral which used to be an island.
That evening, we got to Monteverde, the Cloud Forest. This is the view from our hotel with our blue tour bus in the foreground.
Happy Holidays and Pura Vida!
This tree was setup in La Sabana Park near our hotel.
We found all of the evergreen-themed Christmas ornaments to be amusing. We even saw live trees decorated on front porches.
We then went on a uphill climb to some overlooks.
...and then to a beach that was closed due to a crocodile in the water.
They had gotten funds recently to improve the trails so we didn't have to walk in mud.
Our guide Rafael took us on a side trail to check out a waterfall...
Can you spot the frog?
