Yesterday we did our canopy zipline tour in the morning with Dream Canopy Tours. What a blast! We had 7 ziplines. It was so cool to go zipping through the rainforest on a cable. It was totally fun and we had a great time doing it! We had two guides and a photographer, so we didn't have to worry about bringing our cameras. I would do it again in a heartbeat.
After that, we headed back down to the public beach and rented a canopy for a few hours
While we were on the beach, we witnessed a fight between some Ticos. It was the weirdest thing. All of a sudden, this dude started bashing another dude. The one who was being bashed had blood on his back. Then at one point, Lissy was like, "and now he has a shovel." It was wild, and honestly a little freaky. Our cabana waiter walked by after that and said, "not nice." I said, "Si, and not good for tourism." Seriously!
I ended up taking a little power nap in the room, which I think I needed. The Zithromax is helping, but I'm still coughing up gunk. My voice definitely sounds better. I can tell when walking up hills that I still sound winded.
We ended up going to Villas Nicholas for dinner, a quaint little place off the beaten track. I ate mahi mahi and it was AMAZING! So big, so fresh and so good. It was served with a side of rice pilaf, veggies and yucca root, which look liked french fries. It was a great last meal in Manuel Antonio.
Today we travel to San Jose and will be staying in a hotel for two nights. On Thursday morning, we come back home. I'm not sure how I feel about that. I love being here, but I wished I felt better. I miss home a bit and Kelly-dog, too. And the "living out of a suitcase" thing is starting to get old. We shall see......
