San Jose-Selva Bananito
costa rica beaches & rainforest

(Kim Anderson)
Breakfast on the patio at Hotel Le Bergerac....watermelon, pineapple, papaya (?), fresh juice, croissant and hot chocolate. Met several other people beginning and ending their tours. Van to Selva Bananito ecolodge...about 4 hours. We were met for the last leg of the journey by a Jeep that took us over a back country road and a couple of river crossings. This wasn't scary until I saw another truck crossing behind us...and saw that the water was up to his bumper. But we made it just fine. Beautiful cabin with louvered windows and doors, tiled bathroom, mosquito netting over the bed, hammock on the porch. Went for a horseback ride...horses absolutely sweet and gentle but happy to get up to a good gallop. Buggy and muggy outside. Tip for next time: Remember the DEET!
