Today we picked hibiscus flowers to make tea. We learned how from school and wanted to try it at home. It was delicious !
We took a big adventure down the very south end of Costa Rica. At our first rest stop we seen Toucans and Macaws in the trees. They are really cool.
We stopped at the Tarcoles River to see all the crocodiles sunning themselves under the bridge , they were Huge!!
Along the way we stopped to see some really nice lookouts at the ocean , the waves are much bigger along the coast line then where we live.
We then arrived at Uvita for our first night. We visited some nice beaches , we played by a cave and swam in some big waves.
Our next destination was an Eco Lodge beside the Corcovado National Park. We saw a Scorpion as big as D’s hand , it was right beside his foot ! Too fast for a picture though. We went hiking on many trails , we got to see squirrel monkeys, they were really adorable. We hoped to see sloths but they were all hiding.
Then we went on a chocolate tour , we seen lots of different kinds of fruit first. Then we learned how chocolate was made from growing the fruit to drying it out and grinding it up. At the end we got to taste it !!
At our last stop we stayed by a bunch of waterfalls. We went hiking to see them and saw an army frog and lots of tadpoles.
We had an amazing adventure!!
We are heading on an adventure! We are going exploring other parts of Costa Rica. We will be visiting the rainforest and jungle areas on the Pacific side of Costa Rica in the Puntarenas Province. We are really excited to see all the different wildlife. We are hoping to see a sloth!
We will post all about it when we get back! Wish us luck!
When we were eating supper outside, guess who walked right by us? Mr. Skunky the Skunk! He was a little white and mostly black. We stayed really quite so he would not spray us , he was sure cute though.
I don’t have a picture though !

I was showering last night and guess who came to visit me??
I got out of the shower and our neighbor came over to get rid of it.
Rainy season has started! So far it is pretty great because it is still warm enough to play outside and swim in the pool. We have been making paper boats and rafts to float down our sidewalk. As long as it is not storming we can play outside.
