monteverde

Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve

The pictures speak for themselves... Monteverde was amazing.

Our fantastic room at Hidden Canopy Treehouses

Howler Monkey at Monteverde Cloud Forest. It was rife with all sorts of exotic creatures.

It looks just like a leaf! That really is a bug!

Same on this one...

When it rained, it poured!

Tarantula from our night hike


A mushroom growing on a beetle. Quite the sight!

They called this Angelina Jolie Lips

Humingbirds...

And now for the food...

Arroz con pollo

Empanadas in a rich, buttery crust


Breakfast at Hidden Canopy

Heart of palm fritters
