Our next stop was Drake Bay which is quite a backpacker destination. A couple of pictures from our anchorage:
There was a nice long trail along the coast. Here, Bjarne is crossing a river on a quite rickety hanging bridge:
The coast is a mix between sand beaches and rocks:
An interesting palm tree:
We saw several different kinds of lizards:
This part of Costa Rica has many macaws. They are a little difficult to photograph when they sit in the trees, but at least they are not shy. They just carry on eating nuts and berries while we try to get a good picture. Here is the best we could do:
Another nice beach:
The jungle is very pretty and exotic in places:
We reached the point where Rio Claro enters the ocean:
At the shore of the river we found a sign with a whistle attached. The sign said to blow the whistle and then a small boat would pick you up and take you to the other side for 2 USD per person.
Instead we walked up a high hill into the jungle:
This was the view from the top:
At the top we reached a dirt road that did not seem to be used much. Some ants are taking over:
We often see leaf cutter ants in the jungle, but these ones are carrying small yellow flowers:
We have seen that a couple of times with different types of flowers being carried.
