For those that make it to La Fortuna and are into your naturism, there is no better place in Costa Rica than the place they call Caño Negra.

An area of wetland gaining it´s name from the black volcanic dust tinged water it leaks into Rio Frio which flows on the border between Costa Rica & Nicaragua.

This place you are gauranteed to see animals like:
Caimen
Howler Monkeys
Sloths
Storks
Turtles
Jumping Fish
Bats
Kingfishers
and sometimes the Jesus lizard running across the waterway

For the $30 dollars, it was a sure thing.
You could spot wildlife until you could be bothered to spot no more.

Here are some pictures.

This one is showing a smaller version of the Crocodile named the Caiman which you will find throughout the Amazon and tropical regions.
Lively little buggers they are, there are too many opportunities to see them.
Our boat was able to pull right up to within a couple of meters allowing us to take pictures.

Obviously, this must have given the impression that they were ‘friendly’ and one of the Canadian tourists asked if they bite (?!)
You know what the Americans say about the Canadians.

We must be some of the luckiest tourists alive.

While we were out, we spotted this Albino Howler monkey.
Our guide had never spotted one of these before and he had been 19 years on the job.

In addition
Got a great tan.
