We made it to our last stop La Paloma in Osa Peninsula! This is pretty remote just like Pacuare was. The views are amazing and since we are on the pacific side there’s a chance we will see whales!
Getting here was interesting, we had to take a puddle jumper for an hour to a make shift airport, more like a hut! Janet slammed four beers and popped half a Xanax before we got on to this thing. She talked that poor old mans ear off the entire time! Poor guy ran off that plan so fast and chain smoked about four cigarettes before we even made it to our driver! I on the other hand, cried the entire time clinching my cross and repeating “oh God please don’t let us die! This plane sat about 8 people total and it was scary! I was able to come out of my fetal position a few times to get some pics.
The first night we were here we went on a night hike through the jungle with a bug/reptile expert. It’s a husband and wife team. They’ve assisted national geographic and animal planet on several episodes and articles. It was very interesting but gross. You should see some of these things out here!! YUCK
We went snorkeling yesterday and saw mama and baby spotted dolphins. along with a few white tipped sharks and plenty of fish and a turtles. There’s a ton of butterflies, I love the morpho’s ! Last night we walked the jungle path to town for a quick beer and then followed security back to our lodge, his shift started so it was nice we had the extra protection walking at night.
Today we relax! Maybe a swim at the pool, hike or a kayak trip up the river.
There’s a white faced monkey that steals cookies at the man lodge where we eat. He’s sneaky but cute and has a major sweet tooth!
Till next time!!

I love the way they made the towels into things. That had to be Janet holding the bug. Just love all the pictures. And Im so glad the cross I gave you years ago still helps you. Love you ❤
No, wasn’t Janet it was the bug lady!
I love the picture of the frog on the leaf or flower.
