The thunderstorm raged through the night. Rain pounded the roof and more than once, I awoke to the entire room illuminated from a lightning bolt. It was wonderful.
The itinerary for our second day in Tortuguero included a nature walk through a frog pound and butterfly garden, all on the grounds of the Mawamba Lodge, followed by an afternoon cruise on the river where we would look for Costa Rica’s wildlife. What we didn’t plan for was the rain. Granted, we were the ones who decided to travel during the wet season so we knew what we were getting into. Well, at least some of us.
