Today we had a much more relaxed morning, particularly for Lucy who had an hour long massage!! During which mum and I decided to try out another one of the trails. We went on the waterfall trail during which we saw some very very large burrows which was slightly worrying. We also saw a group of about 5 adolescent spider monkeys and a little baby one in the trees. Who must have all jumped into the same tree at one point as hundreds of twigs started falling down, making us feel like we were being chased. (Do take whatever I say with a pinch of salt – as Joe would say I’m a bit of a drama queen).
We then popped in the pool to cool down just before lunch, which consisted of a huge chicken salad with an amazing passion fruit dressing – note to self, find a recipe when I’m home!!
That afternoon we got suited up in our harnesses and got ready to go waterfall rappelling !! We went down 4 waterfalls with the last one being over 20m high –
and we had so much fun (even mum enjoyed it).
It ended on the beach and we then had many, many steps to climb to get back to the lodge…
We then headed back for a coffee and a final swim in the pool and had to start packing as it was our final night in Puerto Jimenez, sadly!!
We had our final dinner and confirmed all our travel arrangements for our final day in Costa Rica.
