La Fortuna to Monteverde (Day 5)

We really enjoyed our time on the outskirts of La Fortuna, but it was time to move on. We arranged to travel by Jeep - Boat - Jeep to Monteverde.  

The weather in Monteverde was very predictable. Nice in the morning, terrential downpour starting around 3 and then it would dry up in the evening. It was a perfect excuse for an afternoon nap back at the hotel.


A bit wet

Our ride.

 

Howler monkies!

 

 Play the video to hear the howler monkeys.

 

Our Jeep! It wasn't exactly a smooth ride.

 

We visited an Orchid museum. 

 

I believe this is a shot of the smallest orchid in the world.

 

Winding roads in the hills of Monteverde.
