10th - 11th November
10/11/2011 - 11/11/2011
After a torrential downpour the night before and some slightly damp clothes, we packed up and moved on from Puerto Viejo by bus towards our next destination of Tortuguero. Stopping off enroute to buy supplies for the journey and the next couple of days we continued on to the port of Limon where we all piled into a little taxi-boat for the 4 hour journey along the Canals of Tortuguero. As we zoomed through plantations and jungle vegetation, we stopped along the way to see sloths and howler monkeys hanging out in the trees, iguanas basking in the sun, herons and kingfishers patiently waiting on branches overhanging the water ready to dive in and get their next meal.
