Our move from La Fortuna back to the coast but the Caribbean side this time, was long to say the least. Amazingly the girls travelled really well. Our 240km drive took 6 hours and they helped pass half of it by counting 1,218 trucks between the San Jose highway and Limon. We passed three pretty significant truck accidents on the way and saw these mammoth trucks in various stages of being righted or towed back out of the ditch. It made driving quite a tense exercise for Rob.
It was great to pull into 3 Bamboo just before sunset and settle into our home for the next four days. We had a kitchen so ate two meals a day at home. As we were 5k from Cahuita town this was very handy and meant we could enjoy the pool and the shade in the hot, humid afternoons. While in Cahuita we toured the Sloth Sanctuary and saw some of the sloth adults and toddlers that had been rescued but would not be able to be returned to the wild. We also took the opportunity to book a guide and walk the Cahuita Reserve park. This was by far our best walk and we saw everything from a sloth to a raccoon and even a bright yellow poisonous viper. Carlos was great so if you are ever here make sure we pass on his details. We even finally saw a Toucan.
