The packaged tour that I have paid for picks you up and drops you back at the hotel. We start at 7:00 AM. There are about 10 others. Sit upfront . Makes me feel like am driving the bus.
|The Steets of Costa Rica|
Out first Stop is the Doka Estate. The guide explains how coffee is made. The more you roast the beans the less the caffeine. Talks a little about the different Blends. Here in Costa Rica the seeds are hand picked as opposed to whats done with machines in Brazil and other countries like Columbia. The estate makes eight different kinds of coffee.

Picture shows the samplings which are less than a year old. Coffee is often grown with Banana which protects it from the winds. We breakfast here.
|Entrance to Poas National Park|
|The Mouth of the Crater..|

|At the Park|
Quick Lunch and we then head to the La Paez Waterfall. Theres an Aviary here and it wonderful seeing all the birds. some like the toucan I've only seen on National Geographic and their curious pretty faces really made me smile.
The Butterfly farm was full of rioting colours. Caught a few on my camera
The Waterfall was really pretty. But I've seen far prettier ones back home in India. For me the greatest thing would always be standing by the smouldering volcano wondering what would happen if it erupts :)
|Where the opening scene of Jurassic Park was shot..|
Our Day ended with a boat ride on one of the local rivers which connects Costa Rica to Nicaragua. Costa Rica is teeming with wildlife. The best way to seesome is by cruising through the river ecosystems.

And then it poured for a couple of minutes.. The weather here is really capricious. We sat back in the boat watching ripples and hearing the rush of rain water coming down on the roof of the boat.
The boat ride ended and I was dropped back home..Tired and Exhausted ..But happy! :).
Wish everyday was as nice as this one
