While I did not see as much wildlife as I had hoped - I did learn about Central American wildlife viewing enough to know how to see more next trip, and I saw an introduction. Most wildlife centric trips cost more than the one we elected to take, though we emphasized it as much as we could. It was a nice mixture of seeing things and adventure and a much needed break.
As always, I'll try and pick and share my favorite photos of the trip here, and animal stories. (I review the hotels and restaurants on TripAdvisor). Today's installment is a close up of an iguana we saw in Tortuguera, on the Carribean side of Costa Rica. Overall that was my favorite spot we visited as it was the most remote and we saw the most wildlife. There were a lot of small lizards there as well as some quite large ones. We saw one that was a few feet long climbing a tree, which I'd not seen before.
