We’ve been hanging out in Golfito for the last 10 days or so. Chris had’t gotten her fill of tropical animals yet, so we took the ferry across the Guldo Dulce to Puerto Jimenez with friends from Sunnyside Up and Libertad. Then onto Cabo Matapalo via –wheel drive taxi to Encanta La Vida eco-lodge. Cool place to stay with great food and beautiful gardens.
Water taxi over. It leaves on a fixed schedule,unless it fills up earlier or the captain wants to leave at a different time.
Lodge beds, no charge for the mosquito nets
First order of business was to hike along and in the stream straight up to the waterfalls.
Pretty impressive falls, compared to the little people on the right.

If you hike up stream, then you have to hike back downstream to get home.
A cross between a rabbit and large rat, a ?????
A Jesus Christ lizard. These things walk across the top of the water a break neck speed.

Cocoa growing wild out the side of the tree
Red dragon fly doing her thing
And monkeys. The howlers were really loud at about 4am and the capuchins would stop by in the afternoons. we Look closely at this mama capuchin and you can see her baby snuggling tightly on her back.
