Lancha in El Castillo at 6am, 45min ride on the river: we see toucans, big iguanas, monkeys, jungle and unfortunately also a highway that Costa Rica is building along its side of the river destroying the entire ecosystem. It made me nauseous, I could't believe it. Shame on them.
Indio Maiz was a great 3hr hike thru pure jungle and the rubber boots were indispensable along the muddy trail. Our guide was very knowledgable, he showed us all the medicine plants and trees: there's a remedy for everything in the jungle! Without rain it wouldn't be a rainforest right? So we also had our thunderstorm on the way back: thanks Dad for giving me the poncho before leaving Italy!
Once back at the Hotel we had another delicious meal and a lot of relaxing time on the hammock by the river.
