About the Book
This book is the result of a trip to Costa Rica in January of 2011. During our first five days we stayed with Danny & Martha O'Neill in Hermonsa, which is just south of Jaco, located on the Pacific side of Costa Rica. Our day trips included Manuel Antonio Park, a turtle preserve where we witnessed newborn turtles being released into the ocean, and a butterfly and frog preserve. Our last two days were spent near Poas Volcano in the Peace Lodge which has its own bird aviary, big cat exhibit, frogs, hummingbirds, and extensive gardens and waterfalls.
