Scout away..., Rainforest!

What would you like to get first? The good or the bad news?

Well, let’s start with the good ones. The rainforest is simply amazing in Costa Rica. Everything is alive and wherever you look it’s like a painting. Anyone, who ever dreamed of flying through the canopy like Sean Connery in “The Medicine Man”, can actually do that here. Many national parks are setup with a canopy tour rigging.

We found so many locations, one more beautiful then the other but…

…now the bad news. Everything we visited was completely inaccessible. Most of the places you have to walk for a while and the trails are super thin. That’s were logistics can beat production value. But then again, that’s not really true. There are so many beautiful places in this country that we found a replacement in a heartbeat.

One thing was for sure; I haven’t sweated that much in a long time. It was so extremely hot and humid that sweat was literally dripping from my skin like a waterfall. I think Jonathan our AD shared my opinion. :-) I felt like I was swimming the whole day. Then of course the mosquito factor was hitting us hard, too. Without repellant they would have eaten us alive.

But nothing could destroy that amazing experience...
