It's Laura and Jeremy here and we're here to tell you all about our adventures on Sunday.
We started the morning eating breakfast at our beautiful hotel complete with a suspension bridge! The bridge overlooked the Colorado River (different river) and was scary but so cool! We were then on our way to zip lining, but not without a few hiccups. On our way to La Fortuna we found ourselves right in the middle of a bike race! We were stopped a few times, once for about a half hour, to let the bikers pass through. The entire drive we were passing and driving alongside these bikers. We had fun cheering them on! We stopped at a bakery for some treats, had a delicious buffet lunch, and then finally arrived at zip lining. A few of us went to a nature preserve for a guided tour to look at some animals, sloths included! The rest of us braved the heights and had a blast zip lining. We lucked out with the weather and only had a bit of rain despite down pouring just an hour before we got there.
Exhausted from a fun afternoon, we headed to Sarapiqui to camp out in our platform tents. The tents have beds, an attached bathroom, and a covered outdoor deck overlooking the forest. It poured, lightening and thundered all night making for a beautiful evening in nature. We stayed dry and enjoyed another great Costa Rican dinner, good conversation, and a round of Farkle, a dice game in which Mike destroyed us all, though Mau had a promising come back. Falling asleep to the rain and distant flashes of lightening was so serene and the perfect end to our Sunday.
