This Island area is home to various schools of fish, including white tip reef sharks, barracuda, amberjack, and many tropical species. One of the highlights was seeing a marlin swim by while we made our 15 foot decompression stop. There was so much to see, especially all the "little stuff", colorful invertebrates and smaller marine life.
To top off the wonderful diving, there was also an opportunity to see the Rainforest at night, with all the truly unique spiders, snakes, frogs, and lizards. Next was a hike thru the Corcovado National Park which offered a quiet look at the various birds, monkeys, plants, mushrooms and even bats.
At the end of the hike, we were even chased by a couple of peccaries. The end of our trip brought us to the Arenal Volcano area, where we saw the red-hot lava flow down the side of the mountain one night while we were at the pool. What a treat that was. A trip down the Piedras Blancas River where we saw sloths, kingfishers, and the strawberry poison dart frog, made this a most unforgettable trip. It is impossible to see everything in just 11 days, so, a trip back to this wonderful country is certainly in the cards.
