After going out in Puerto Viejo on Friday a traditional „Gallo pinto“ breakfast at Hotel Colón Caribegot us ready for the guided walk through Cahuita National Park. Our guide Fico, who knows everthing about Costa Rica´s wildlife, showed us the big variety of species that lives in this area… and it was really amazing to see the Capuchin monkeys climbing on the trees and butterflies in colours I´ve never seen before. It was a really unforgettable experience to walk on the seaside and to see so many different species. I´ll never forget those „untouched“ beaches with palmtrees and I couldn´t stop taking pictures because I was overwhelmed by the beauty of this part of our world. We got into the really warm Caribbean water and just enjoyed the moment.
After a few hours of walking we reached Cahuita and looked forward to having a traditional Caribbean lunch. We went to a small restaurant, called „soda“ in Costa Rica. It was a very good choice because the food was very, very good. We adapted to the Caribbean way of life called „zero stress“ and waited a little bit while drinking delicious fresh fruit juices. It was worth waiting, because I really fell in love with the coconut-dishes there and we all enjoyed the food.
Can a day be better than spending it with nice people, seeing amazing landscapes and enjoying special drinks and food that are made out oft he freshest incredients? For me not…
