Costa Rica Travel: Cano Negro Wildlife/Rara Avis

I went to Rara Avis last year. It was another great trip to Costa Rica, and I loved it. The tractor ride is an adventure and hard to describe, the accommodations are clean and the food is great. It is very remote, no electricity, and the stay in the rivers edge cabin is very private (ok this may not be great for everyone), watch for the anteater on the trail to the cabin. I was awakened every morning by the toucans flying over, and I went to the great water fall every day. Great hiking trails. I could go on and on about my adventure there. I'm planning on returning to Costa Rica in Jan. 2006, and want to go some where different, but Rara avis keeps coming to mind and I am having trouble finding a place to go that will top it.

The Caño Negro Wildlife area is a great area. If you want to see all of it go to Los Chiles, there are always some cabins available. Rent a little boat for the next day and enter the area about seven in the morning and you can see a lot of birds, monkeys, sloths, Caymans (from the baby's to the big ones) and return in the afternoon. You can lunch in the little village inside Caño Negro for little money. It is one of my favorite places to go.
