Here are photos from our excursions. My tummy trouble stopped me from visiting the volcano, but my Hubby took pictures for me.
First Into the Estuary.
We took a trip up the river that flows through the area and into the sea by boat. Our guide, Pony, did not speak English. I got to practice my Spanish. It made me laugh to follow Pony through the mangroves to see the Howler monkeys. He was barefoot though the rocky soil but had a pink High School Musical backpack.
We saw birds, monkeys, and fish. Our guide was shocked we did not see any crocodiles. I guess they needed beauty sleep. We were first on the river that morning. The other boats came up the river as we were going back.
We went snorkeling, ate great food cooked on board, and toasted the sunset on this beautiful boat. It is a great deal for those who want to see the beautiful rocky seashore, get out on the ocean and snorkel. I will be honest and tell you the snorkeling was hard work. I was spoiled in Hawaii but it was fun to see the fish. They have promised to post pictures from our trip but not up yet.
No photos of the turtles. It was dark. I love the ecoturism in the area. They take good care of their turtles because they know that people come to Tamarindo just to see them.
Here are Hubby’s photos of the volcano trip. I will admit to being a little jealous.

I love the pictures! You two took some wonderful shots. I am not great with the camera, but we still have a few okay photos. We have ones of similar things from last year! The resort we were on had lots of coati and iguanas running around. Well, the coati ran around looking for food, most of the iguanas lounged in trees and on large rocks by a pond. We saw the howlers at dusk, when they would come back out of the mountains near by. (I am not a morning person, so we never saw them in the early morning hours when they would head out looking for food.)
I am so glad you were able to go to Costa Rica. It is such a beautiful place, and the locals are very kind. What I wouldn’t do to retire there one day. :o)
Thank you for sharing your pictures and trip stories. It brings back so many fun memories.
I am glad the pictures brought back memories. We loved the beauty of the place and the kindness of the people.
