Originally we thought the drive to Dominical was only a couple hours, but it took over four. When we did arrive we were pleasantly surprised by the house Dad had rented for us. It has an amazing view and a pool! As the caretaker was showing us around, two toucans flew up into the tree that is right in front of the porch! A few minutes later two more flew up and they started talking to each other. It was so cool! Because it was getting late, we got dinner to go then went to bed.
I woke up to the sound of birds, which are very loud and repetitive here, which was amazing! The first thing we did was go to a farmers market five minutes down the road then we stopped by another grocery store. When we got back it was close to lunch time, so we grabbed a couple mangos and jumped in the pool. We spent most of the day chilling by the pool and went to a sushi place for dinner. Just before dinner we decided to go on a walk down a path that we found close to our house. It took us into the jungle and then to the ocean. We were hoping to see monkeys and sloths but we had no such luck. We did see lots of birds and carpenter ants though!
I had forgotten to mention how hot and humid it is here. In Moorea it is just as hot, and probably even more humid, but at least there is a constant breeze there!
