Feb 18, 2018 - Last day in Cahita

Today we hiked down to Tree of Life, an animal rescue and rehabilitation center here in Cahuita. We spent an enjoyable 1 1/2 hours being guided through the center, with its Botanical Gardens and animal enclosures. Our guide was so interesting; telling stories about how each animal came to be there and how they try to get them ready to go back to the wild. So many sad stories of people who buy cute animals as pets, not realizing how long they live and how their behavior changes as they grow... Not that it's a sad story, but I am reminded of...

Feb 17, 2018 - Cahuita Beach Hike

Today was a hiking day. The weather was beautiful, no appreciable rain while we hiked the Parque Nacional Cahuita, a 4 mile stretch of beach between Cahuita Village and Punta Vargas Ranger Station. We saw one sloth who hid in the leaves, they are very shy, a raccoon and lots of blue butterflies. At the end we caught a bus back and walked to dinner in town. Barb The 8.6 kilometer hike should not have been onerous, but somehow the heat and humidity make me feel like I am pushing my way through layers of warm sticky fluid. The layers of...

Feb 15, 2018 - Rafting the Pacuare

After getting up at 4 am for our combination boat and car ride from Tortuguera, we arrived at the Pacuare River for a white water rafting adventure. The Pacuare area is beautiful, parts of the Jurassic Park movies were filmed there. The rafting is adventurous, with many Class IV rapids, which was exciting, and at times terrifying Unlike our Grand Canyon rafting trip, we all had to paddle (at times frantically) to keep the raft in the correct position to transit the rapids. I (naturally) had two very close calls with trying to fall out of...

Jan 19, 2013 - Jan 4 - Jan 19

Jan 4th I met up with some of the yoga training group at my hotel. The rest of the group picked us up to start the 4-hour shuttle trip to the Goddess Garden in Cahuita. I was pretty disappointed I was starting my yoga teacher training sick but the other 20 students were very compassionate. I made a full recovery in three days. The Goddess Garden was absolutely beautiful. In the rain forrest and a quick walk to the beach (no time for beach though). We saw monkeys, tucans, sloths and lots of bugs! The training was intense. Schedule every day...

Sabbatical No 2

Dec 24, 2008 - Cahuita, Costa Rica

December 24th - 28th, 2008 Andrew made it in one piece:) And I was showered with sunscreen, bug spray and chocolates on Momma´s orders. It was nice to have some chocolate from back home for xmas, I think somethings added to the chocolate here so it doesn´t melt as quick. Anywho, Cahuita was a small town with a laid back vibe. We didn´t do much. Did a couple of walks and just relaxed. Laura met up with us in Cahuita and spent the holidays with us:) Her VISA ran out in El Salvador so she high tailed it down and joined us. Nothing really...

Leslie's Trip South

May 14, 2008 - Cahuita

Reluctantly (a theme is emerging here!) we dragged ourselves away from Puerto Viejo but it was only a very short (30 minute) bus ride along the coast to Cahuita, a village on the edge of the national park of the same name. Again the local people were really friendly and welcoming and we soon settled in to the Cahuita pace of life - even more laid back than Puerto Viejo! We followed a trail through the national park - a lovely walk through primary forest alongside a beautiful white sand, palm fringed beach. More great flora and fauna. John...

Dec 7, 2007 - Carribean canals

Today was an interesting day. I was due to catch a boat from Tortuguero to Moin then bus to the town of Cahuita. when I turned up it was obvious the boat situation was a problem. Why? because it wasn't big enough. Firstly they put some plastic chairs in the aisle of the boat, but after 15 minutes down river it was obvious the engine was having problems. So then they decided on 2 boats.... They needed 5 people to get out... it just so happens those 5 were my Estonian friends from the day before. As it turns out they eventually arrived 5...
