Casa Orquidea
Panama and Costa Rica Expedition Cruise

This morning we took a short rainforest hike. I spent most of the time pacing ahead of the group to try to get Matthew to sleep in the backpack so that he wouldn't make any noise and disturb the wildlife. We saw a few howler monkeys high in the trees and soon returned back to the boat.

In the afternoon, we visited Casa Orquidea, a privately owned botanical garden. Despite the torrential rain, the gardens were beautiful with hundreds of flowers representative of the area.
