Today we left the beautiful Rincon de la Viejo Lodge and went to see the last remaining dry forest in Central America. We visited Santa Rosa National Park for a beautiful hike through the forest and a visit to the museum there. In the park, we saw several white-tailed deer, some flycatchers, and several large iguanas defending their own territory. We then went to Liberia for lunch. After lunch we drove to a beach along the Pacific Ocean. We took a walk along and into the ocean. We stayed at the beach for awhile; swimming and relaxing. We then returned to Liberia for a swim at our hotel and another scrumptious Costa Rican dinner. Tomorrow we will have breakfast and then start for home. We are hoping to arrive at O'Hare at about 11:00 p.m. We all are very thankful for our wonderful trip.
