Cute little bugger.
We came down to the Osa Pennisual to visit Nastassia's friend Kate (they worked in whistler together) who is teaching English just outside of Peurto Jiminez for a year. We met up with her and made some plans to venture into the wild Corcovado National Park to see some untamed jungle life. With a few tents rented, we caught a collectivo (truck taxi) to the park entrance and hiked 3kms down the beach to a beautiful campsite. From here we did two, one-day hikes; one down the rugged and very beautiful coast, the other into the jungle depths. Nastassia managed to contract a mysterious case of food poisoning on the second day (despite eating everything identical to us) and was quite out of commision. But needless to say we had a great time and saw lots of jungle and wildlife (including monkeys, tapiers, pizotes (jungle racoons) and we even saw a puma which is very rare to see!)
After the hike Ben was getting ancy to be back in the surfing scene so we decied to go check out the surf spot called Pavones. Pavones has one of the largest left breaks in the world when it is working, but
when we got there we found that there would be no surf for a couple more days so we moved on up the coast to atempt meet up with Bens friend Erik. Currently we are in Jaco doing some surfing and looking for some boards to buy...
