Corcovado National Park, San pedrillo station-romantic sunset

San Pedrillo Ranger Station has one of the most romantic sunsets you could ever enjoy.

It is the perfect place to forget about everything that stops us from fully enjoying in our lives, meditate and remember that this world is beautiful no matter what.

As a naturalist tour guide and father of a little boy I have to work hard to give travellers and my family the best from me, and it gets me very tired, however when I find myself enjoying when swimming in such beautiful places and observing these amazing sunsets I feel refilled with new energy and remember how good it is to enjoy those moments disconnected from the stress of the system of life that sometimes overwhelms us.

 

Always when I go on tours to Corcovado National Park, Caño island to do snorkeling or simply doing a night hike I find a moment to appreciate the beauty of the surroundings, and how amazing nature and its details can be when you get deeper into them.

 

It is very interesting to see that many couples come to the park to enjoy Corcovado on a honeymoon trip, or simply during vacation time.

Something that has truly helped me to avoid getting bored of working in tourism is my trips to Europe since when I come back I see the beauty of my place and I feel amazed again.

 

 

 

Red eyed leaf frogs, charming nocturnal creatures

 

The red-eye leaf frog is an amphibian that represents Costa Rica. It appears in many different products and souvenirs. Personally, it is one of my favorite creatures to find when I go night hiking, and people love it.

It is a nocturnal creature. The males stay at a place and make of it their territory, even if it means to fight for what they consider a special spot, close to a pond of seating water where they make their calls waiting for a female to choose them and begin the cycle of a new generation of red-eye leaf frogs.

Frogs are being affected almost all over the world because of habitat loss and fungus that attack their skin and block their ability to breath and drink since they do it thru the skin. Drake Bay has been affected but only by habitat loss so far.

It is also known that frogs are an indicator of the health of the forest since they are very susceptible to changes in the temperature.
