After the Lodge my Guide and I hiked for a bit in the rain forest along well manicured trails.. these led to some of the famous jungle water falls in Costa rica.. it was raining hard all day! 

 

 

 

 

 

Pretty insanely cool here with 3 waterfalls coming together.. the roar of the water was awesome..

Costa Rica has some wild frogs.. and I am pretty sure some of these are deadly..

 

 

 

Poison Dart frog?

Up into the mountains that is.. after the coffee plantation my guide and I went further into the rain forest and mountains outside of San jose, on our way to Peace Lodge. Before arriving we travelled through some small towns and many strawberry farms..
