The exressways are privately owned. One entrance costs about 3 Dollars. Residents can only apply for a quick pass.
My friend and I wanna walk through a rain forest today and decided to go to Carara’s where we can see some wild animals.
Beware of the snakes. Those are highly poisend. After bitten, you only have 4 hours to live. There is a hospital in San Jose you can reach within 2 hours.
There are guides present to book. They carry emergency kit, but these shots can lead to death as well. When bitten, you should also tell the hospital which snake bit you in order to treat you right.
The hard working ants took the wrong direction. I guess they cannot read signs.

We were called by a guide to watch this snake eating a lizzard. The guide was really happy to see all this happening. He saw how the snake grabbed the lizzard.
Going to Catarata the highest watefall in Costa Rica (tourist fee about 20 Dollars)
Bring plenty of water with you. The rain season already started. The trail was very wet and steep. The last part down to the waterfall was in my opinion quite risky. Dont go all by yourself! There were only us and 3 more people on the trail. It was raining hard on our way back.
Always risking his butt :-)
Due to heavy rain we left for San Pedro

Museo de Arte Costa Ricense - formerly the grounds of the airport
did not go in, but at the corner of the backyard we could see some parts of old air planes
Some drive a Jeep like this. This black part helps driving the car through high water without getting the engine and inside under water.
