Our birdguide, Andres Trujillo. His birding skills were amazing and was, without doubt, the best guide we have ever had. He worked tirelessly helping us find and identify the birds, out in all weathers (believe me, we had rain like you cannot imagine). He was fabulous and such a lovely, kind person. We would definitely recommend him and will certainly take another bird trip with him in the future.
Bananas - served with every meal, good job we like them !
This was the strangest town and felt and looked like we were in a 1960's commune. All the shops were silver / craft and all run by westerners. The square was surrounded by organic coffee and food shops, all looked to be run by hippys. I spoke to a couple of men sitting next to us in a cafe and they had come from Manchester to do 'hands on healing' 5 years ago....and they were still there. Lovely people, lovely place and I did buy a pair of earrings !

A picnic in the road ! Good times.
All the lodges we stayed at had hummingbird feeders like this one. Birds never stopped visiting the feeders. It was unbelievable watching the hummers feeding all day with no fear of humans whatsoever. One of those moments in our life that we will never forget.
Simon enjoying his coffee at the hippy cafe. The coffee everywhere was lovely and we brought quite alot back with us. Freshly ground for us and a fraction of the price.
