The incredible trail of the National Forest.
So after my grand adventure across the border I stayed in San Jose for a day recovering. I wandered around the markets of town and enjoyed some local cuisine. The next day I took the quick four hour bus ride to Cahuita. This beautiful quaint town is bubbling with Carribian culture. I have spent the past few days here relaxing on the beach, exploring the jungle of National Park which is a block from my cabina,and doing some much needed laundry. The slow pace of Cahuita has been a welcomed change. But the slower pace has not kept the adventure away. My most recent adventurous encounters have been with the animal kingdom. In my past two days I have come within four feet of a sleeping sloth, walked under a band of howler monkeys, chased off a raccoon on the beach, almost stepped on a sting ray, eyed a boa constrictor, seen a billion lizards, a gillion crabs, and a zillion bugs of every shape and size.
Every day a wander out along the trail into the National Park past the initial packed beaches. I walk on the trail for a ways and then cut out to the beach and
continue on further until I reach a small secluded patch of sand and palm trees that looks like it could have been cut out of a magazine. I take a splash in the crystal clear waters and then lay out on the beach soaking up the rays. Then after a little nap on the beach I do it all over again. It is hard life but I am suffering through it!!!
