It´s hard to believe I´ve been in Costa Rica for more than two weeks already. I´m in La Selva now, which is the 7th location we have stayed, and we still have another place to go. Bird watching is the main purpose of the trip, and we have indeed seen lots of species. However, we have also seen cool insects, spiders, frogs, bats, and even a few sloths. We have used multiple means to view the birds. The highlights for me have been the horseback riding, zip-lining, hiking, and the boat tour. In addition to the exciting activities, I´ve enjoyed experiencing the Costa Rican culture through food. The group has become very familiar with the ¨casado¨dish, which consists of rice, beans, salad, plantains, and meat. Tonight we have a night hike!
