Today we woke up in the beautiful lodge to a light rain and headed down for breakfast at 7:30. For breakfast we had delicious banana pancakes, eggs and fruit. After a great breakfast, we gathered on the deck to prepare for ziplining. The instructors helped us slip into our harnesses, we grabbed some helmets and headed up to the ziplines. The ziplines were amazing! There were 4 cables total and each presented a beautiful view of the river and the jungle around us. It was definitely an experience to remember.
After ziplining we loaded up the rafts and headed out for our second day on the rapids. We were challenged with class 3 & 4 rapids, but we approached the challenge head on and had a blast on the water.
After we finished up our last rafting session, we headed back to the Rios Tropicales resort to take quick showers before hitting the road. Our next destination: San Jose for dinner. After a 3 hour bus ride to the city, we cleaned up and had a wonderful final feast of pizza, complete with a pineapple and Nutella pizza for dessert.
After dinner we headed back to our first stop of the trip for our closing ceremony. We reflected on our trip, talked about one another and made bracelets. It was truly a great way to end our adventure. It is almost 3am now and we’re preparing to head to the airport in a half hour to begin our journeys home!
