December 19, 2010 - Roadtrip to the Marino Ballena National Park areas. Were picked up at 9am after a good rice & beans Tico breakfast. Our driver covered the 200km trip in 7 hours, from La Fortuna to the Cristal-Ballena resort, with one stopover for a Casado lunch. The landscape changes from a mountainous rainforest to the humid summers associated with the coastal Pacific. Rest Day. Will set out for a peaceful birdwatching trip tomorrow.
