Cost Rica Study Abroad Day 4-Tirimbina Rain Forest Center

Day Four-

At 9:00 am we departed Evergreen Lodge in Tortuguero by boat for a one and a half hour journey back to the bus rendezvous location.  We then went by bus for another couple hours through Sarapiqui  until we arrived at our destination LaTirimbina Rainforest Center.  We spend the late afternoon and evening getting acclimated to our new home for the next two weeks.  We also played football (soccer) 
in an indoor football field

Tirimbina is an educational, scientific and ecotourism destination, situated between the forests and rivers of the northern region of Costa Rica.Tirimbina offers education programs for primary schools, high schools and university students, as well as facilities for study groups, volunteers and researchers, highlighting the biodiversity and conservation of the rainforest.

Tirimbina's abundant forest provides great ecotourism activities. Come and explore the trails, discover its flora and fauna, walk on the suspension bridges or discover the secrets of cacao during the popular Chocolate Tour.












Here are two sloths we discovered along the way..
