Guanacaste area on the Pasific — 28/2 – 1/3
This is an area of tropical dry forests, marshlands, estuaries, and mangroves which are characteristic of the northern Pacific region. It was a hot and dry environment and very different from what we had seen so far. We spent one night at La Ensenada Lodge which had a splendid view over Gulf of Nicoya. After lunch at the lodge, we visited Solimar, a huge cattle ranch where we were taken round to see some more spectacular wildlife including some very interesting owls. The next morning we birded around the lodge before we set off for the next destination taking in Las Salinas, the salt pans, on the way.
Next destination — Carara Biological Reserve — Days 9 to 11 (1/3 – 3/3)
