On the last couple of days, I chose to do the canopy zip-line tour. It was really awesome. We zip-lined from mountain to mountain while crossing over the river. It was really beautiful and fun. The people working the zip-line were a bunch of young hispanic guys and everytime I landed they would always say, "Good job Princess." It made me laugh.
After the canopy tour, we went to their "Animal House." They only had a few animals but it was still fun. The first three pics is of squirrel monkeys. Then Zach with a Boa. I forgot the name of the animal in the last pic. It had the face of an opossum and the body of a racoon. It was weird looking. That is the only animal that I did not hold. Then there were some more monkeys (we didnt get a pic of them). They were little and black with white hair coming out of their ears. They bit Zach and I though because we wouldnt give them the carrot. They did not want to share the carrot, they wanted it all the themselves. HeHe!
When we slept in the hammocks, at night there would be dozens of these crabs that would come to the beach, lay their eggs, and then go back to the beach. When we woke up in the morning, there were so many crab tracks in the sand. They crawled right under our hammocks. Good thing they cant climb. :) Some crabs were still up on the beach where we were in the morning. There was one crab that got into our friend's board bag.
We went to this place where the boys surfed and there was this family who had a little palapa on the beach and this was their goat. He was one month old. How cute is he?....I called him Goatie. He had little horns on his head and he loved for you to scratch them.
So this is our sleeping quarters for the first 5 nights. Yes, we slept in hammocks. It was actually really comfortable. The wind from off the ocean kept us cool. It rained every night there, but we stayed dry because we were under that palapa. There was one really bad storm where the wind was blowing the rain on us, so we went into our tent for a few hours and then got right back in the hammocks. :) We slept in hammocks to save money. It was only $3 a day. :) The last couple of nights we slept in a hotel.
At the hotel we stayed at the last couple of days made this elephant out of our towels. I thought that was pretty clever!!
