The cacophony of noises which surrounded us day and night was unreal. We listened to layers upon layers of birds, insects, and frogs. It was almost impossible to separate a particular noise individually. Our wildlife viewing included sloths, giant tree iguanas, hundreds of birds, bats, frogs, lizards, snakes, and crazy insects. My favorite were these cute little red frogs, which are slightly poisonous.
This stay was the big splurge of our trip, at $100 a night per person. The price included all of our meals, for which most of the ingredients were grown on site. The lodge also ran a chocolate farm, which meant that we enjoyed many fabulous cacao/coconut milk desserts.
One of my favorite new fruits, the biriba:
It's very sweet and rich, like a creamy custard. Mmmmm.
A jungle hike:
Notice how drenched in sweat I was. The humidity in the jungle is intense! Excellent toxin removal.
Question: What's the weather like in your neck of the woods?
