It was time to experience the sunset from a wonderful restaurant up on the hillside. I think we drank some lemonade made of lime, sugar, mint leaves spiced with vodka, it was way too delicious.
Today I chose to try a yoga session with Sebastian (Yoga teacher) from Argentina. He was really good and even though my body was tired from the surf it felt so great afterwards.
It was time to get up in the trees and experience the concept of zip-line for real. It was not that scary as I thought it would be, the focus came more on the art of using your hand as a brake in the last seconds to avoid a crash in the tree station. I guess the next time I do this I will be ready
Finally I succeeded to catch a real surf wave, I was so shocked, thinking "so this is surfing" I felt as I was flying 0,5 meters above the ground on an invisible track, I almost didn't dare to change my position at all. I also felt that this was enough for this surf camp, I didn't have to achieve
It's funny how easily you can get used to different things. Today I was surrounded by howler monkeys up in the trees above me, just outside of our hut. But I had no problem going to sleep in the hammock just under them even though someone suggested that they could pee on you.

I had a great Costa Rican brunch (gallo pinto, chorreadas, tortilla, fresh tropical fruit, yoghurt, muesli, fresh fruit juice and coffee of course)and got the opportunity to watch parts of the Costa Rican surf competition. It felt so nice to swim and play in the warm ocean, 27 degrees? The guys at
Time to hit the road for the bus to Santa Teresa, I thought it would be a nice and relaxing trip, but it turned out to be another travelling day, meaning quite exhausting. One major factor was that the temperature started to rise when we got down from the highland and reached the coastline. We also
It was time for an early sightseeing to Poas to see the famous crater, we got very inspiring company, one guide that seemed to be a comedian, Jerry a retired man from New York that sold everything he owned and just moved to Costa Rica to live an adventurous lifestyle at the age of 65 and a mother
Finally time for our first 5 hours sightseeing at La Paz waterfall, it was an extremely lush garden with butterflies, monkeys, frogs, jungle cats and hummingbirds (it was a real challenge to catch them on picture). We had a lunch break with a nice buffet before we could explore the waterfalls, it
