When I was a boy, I would spend many Saturday mornings watching nature-based television shows and would never, ever pass up an opportunity to visit a zoo. So to find myself sitting in the middle of the Costa Rican rainforest writing this blog post is a bit surreal. What an amazing adventure!
My first couple days exploring Costa Rica with Adventures by Disney have been spent in the rainforest, seeing creatures in their natural environment that I’ve only seen before on television or at a zoological park. We’ve soared above the rainforest on aerial trams and sailed into the heart of the rainforest on our very own jungle cruise.
The hotel we’re staying at is adjacent to Tortuguero National Park. The wildlife is so close that we didn’t need a wake up call in the morning – the Howler Monkeys in the nearby trees provided us a with a wonderful serenade to help get us out of bed.
Every aspect of the trip has been meticulously planned by the experts at Adventures by Disney so we’re able to see all the highlights, but never feel rushed or hurried — there’s always time to just kick-back, relax and enjoy the natural surroundings. And hosting us on our journey are two Adventure Guides, Michael and Ronald, who already have become an extension of our family. They are both amazing!
While exploring the rainforest, I was lucky enough to get a few photos of the local inhabitants. I hope you enjoy them!
Stay tuned for more updates from my Costa Rican adventure.
