well after La Fortuna, we took another shuttle to Cahuita. I went here for 1 reason- the Sloth Sanctuary and Rescue. i had high expectations- and they were completely surpassed. we got to see up close and even pet these amazing, prehistoric-looking animals! even ADORABLE babies!!! i could just sit there and watch them slowly move for.. well minutes at least. they're really adorable, with their ever-smiling faces, you wonder what they could be thinking. the tour to see the sloths also included a boat tour thru the mangroves on the property where we saw bats, lizards, birds, more sloths, monkeys, frogs, etc. As we were leaving, someone brought in a tiny baby pizote they found in a box!! sooooo cute! we stayed only 2 nites in cahuita cuz there's not much else to do there. its a small surfing town. we went to the beach which was lovely but the waves were a little dangerous to swim for too long. we stayed at hotel national park cahuita- a nice enough hotel right on the beach. we sampled the "nite life"- not much to do but an interesting experience :)

Sounds like this was a great break after all the activity in La Fortuna
