Costa Rica | Part 6

Puntarenas Province, Jaco, Costa Rica
We are finally in the last days of the trip, but we still have a few days left. On our sixth day we started out traveling to Central Pacific Coast. We made one stop at a rest area and I got a coffee and a pastry. Our first stop at Central Pacific Coast was the Rainforest Adventure Park. We rode an aerial tram up the mountain. It was a pretty cool experience. Like the Monteverde Cloud Reserve, a man replanted this area after much deforestation for farm lands. I can't remember exactly how old this forest was, but it was relatively young compared to other parts of the forest. From the top, we could see the Pacific Ocean! After the tram tour we toured a nature trail and visited a butterfly sanctuary.
Next, our guide dropped us off in Jaco where we had an opportunity to walk around on our own. Jaco is a total beach town. 
Around 4 pm, we went to our hotel. It was so hot and humid. This was the first we experienced the climate like this, and it was my least favorite part of the trip. I was sweating just sitting outside. I watched some of the kids at the pool while the others went to run. Then I walked over the bridge to another part of the hotel grounds where I took most of the photos. There was a beautiful church but a creepy looking Jesus inside. 
Which city would you want to visit so far?
