Black Vulture (Coragyps atratus) Scarlet Macaw (Ara macao) Blue-black Grassquit (Volatinia jacarina) Mangrove Swallow (Tachycineta albilinea) Laughing Gull (Larus atricilla) - Non-breeding Royal Tern (Sterna maxima)
Scarlet-rumped Tanager (Ramphocelus passerinii costaricensis)

The one thing I have to say about this town is that there is a lot of loud music. On the other hand, you can see scarlet macaws flying around in the town.


Mexico to Panama

2/24/2009: We arrived in Puerto Jiminez after a long bus ride and adventures in Central Costa Rica. After some effort, we were able to find a room for the night.

The next day, after a morning hike, we arranged our permits and meals for La Sirena. That was a time-consuming job requiring a special trip to the bank.

By afternoon, we were ready to catch a bus/taxi combo to the trailhead into Los Patos.

After our visit to Corcovado, we spent an additional night in town arriving in the back of a truck from the coastal village of Carate. Early the next morning, we were on our way to Panama.
