This was the last day of our expedition, and probably the most productive in terms of wildlife sightings. We started early in the morning with some hikes and walks inside the Curu Wildlife Refuge, where it didn’t really matter where you were, there was something interesting to see around every single corner. We discovered white-faced capuchins along with howler monkeys, white-tailed deer, and coatis; for the birdwatchers we found scarlet macaws, woodpeckers, hummingbirds, and trogons. We even spotted a few black iguanas, “garrobos,” for the ones that like reptiles. Later in the afternoon we all had a really nice dinner and farewell at Isla Tortuga. We said goodbye to the expedition and the time we shared together that created memories that will last forever.
