Rincon de la Vieja- Tuesday May 21st

By Isaac Bolduc

Today’s adventure took us to one of the local volcanoes called Rinco de la Vieja.  Although the tails to the craters at the top were closed due to volcanic activity, we were able to walk a three kilometer trail to see some boiling mud pits, massive ficus trees, and various plant and animal species that reside in the humid forest.  Up till now, there has been very little rain and much of the forests in the lowlands so there are many trees that are still without trees.  We finished our hikes just before the first rain of the trip started.

Tonight we are hitting the town of Liberia to visit a museum, have dinner, and find something fun to do.
