Update from Osa Eden…
Our guests this week were Steve and Mary Ann Johnson from Williamsport PA. They managed to take in the complete Costa Rica experience that included a rainforest wildlife tour (birds, squirrel monkeys, parrots, a screech owl, Iguanas and a rare three toed sloth), inshore fishing (Rooster fish, Cubera Snapper, Yellow Snapper, Mahi, Barred Pargo and a close encounter with a Humpback Whale), hiking, a mountain bike ride, tour of the new Avatar lodge and cocktails on the beach.
The fishing was off considerably all week due to a rare Red Tide condition that caused the fish to migrate away from their normal hangouts to safer waters. I managed to have several very large Rooster fish chase my topwater popper but they were non-committal and I wasn’t able to inflict a sore lip. The killer tide is now diluting and should clear up in the next week or so.
We are also witnessing the rainforest come alive with color as several trees are blossoming with stunning flowers. They don’t last very long and they are on full display early this year due to the exceptionally dry weather. This morning when Katie and I set out on an 8 mile hike, it was 64 degrees and very dry.
More to follow as we continue the exploration.
