2015/07/15 Costa Rica Day 6-8: Monte Verde and Santa Elena
π 2015-07-15 01:01 in Costarica2015, Trips

After getting back to La Fortuna to return our rental car, we took a transport to Monte Verde, which took a little while. We arrived at our hotel (hotel Belmar) just in time to have dinner and plan for the next day. We elected to go to Sky Adventures earlier than our planned time so that we got time to go to an insect and butterfly sanctuary afterwards, and then do a coffee tour at Don Juan before doing our night tour at El Bosque Reserve.

The next morning, we got up early to go to Santa Elena for a bird tour in a high forest, but we got rained out, so we didn't see much :(






From there, our transport took us to Puntarenas to meet our boat going to Cocos Island.
