Overnight at Esquinas Rainforest Lodge.
She wrote in her paper guide:
Hidden in the jungle of remote Piedras Blancas National Park, in southern Costa Rica, Esquinas Rainforest Lodge is surrounded by thousands of acres of untouched wilderness. It is a retreat for nature lovers wishing to experience the sound and sights of a tropical rainforest in a tranquil, undisturbed atmosphere.
I asked her when it was dinner.
-7 o’clock sir.
-It is breakfast 7 o’clock sir.

Overnight at Poas Volcano Lodge.
