Saturday we went from sea level at Quepos to almost 11,000 feet. We had one long dirt road detour because of storm damage but on the whole most of the storm damage had been cleared. Danaca Cloud Forest Lodge where we stayed is in Quetzales National Park. It is a beautiful spot. Unfortunately their internet was down because of storm damage so I haven’t been able to publish the blog for the last couple of days.
We had a sofa in front of a giant picture window to relax and enjoy the view.
On Sunday morning we hiked through the cloud forest down to the river below the lodge.
This morning a giant moth had died outside our picture window. He was six inches across.
Today we headed towards the Caribbean coast. There are still many roads out so to go east we had to first go north through San Jose. Tonight we are at Hotel Villa Florencio in the country just outside of the town of Turrialba.
