Our final day in Costa Rica was quite special. We navigated the Tempisque river in the Palo Verde national park and admired beautiful wildlife. I am a true animal lover so going to a reserve to observe animals in their natural habitat was a real thrill. Some snapshots of our incredible day.
My dad and I took some fun footage on the boat of those cheeky monkeys. They were so friendly!
First time seeing crocs (the animal, not the shoe) in the wild. Pretty cool! They are beautiful creatures.
We had lunch included in our tour and I wasn’t expecting anything grandiose given we were kind of in the middle of nowhere but little did I know we were in for a real treat. We had the pleasure of eating at Rancho Los Coyotes, a beautiful restaurant off a dirt road that was simply magical. First of all, there were LOTS of animals for me to befriend. Second, the actual restaurant and surrounding “businesses” were really nice and the food was so delicious! We even got a traditional pottery making demonstration by the two sweetest boys: Carlos and David, two brothers.
David, the older of the two brothers was kind enough to give me the grand tour of the ranch.
Our yummy meal was followed by a super interesting explanation and demo of how they make pottery in that specific area of Costa Rica and how the skills are passed down from generation to generation.
After a day out in the “wilderness” it was time to return back to civilization and so we enjoyed a nice supper at Italian restaurant Dolce Vita back in Coco Beach. I want to thank my dad, my travel buddy, my guide, my travel enabler for all the memorable moments we shared together. I shall keep these experiences close to my heart as some of the most precious gifts you have given me. Love ya dad! xx
