Nature was definitely a factor during our stay at Chilamate Rainforest Eco-Retreat in Costa Rica. It poured rain for consecutive days and the Sarapiqui River which borders the property rose to dangerous levels and slowly ate away at the river’s banks. At times whole trees and giant logs floated by showing the sheer force of the flood water. Also seen here is the questionable looking but reliable bridge we crossed in the trucks several times. Our photos do not do justice to the the power, danger, and effects of this raging river.

Life on the road often involves late nights followed by long days of driving. New crew member Steel Henessey Jones is pictured here catching up on his beauty sleep. Our trip this day took us from Dominical, on Costa Rica’s pacific coast, to Chilamate Eco-Retreat, in the heart of the rainforest.
