Our […]

TNS456 15/02/2016  We set off on the morning of the twelfth for an adventure not fully realizing the excitement and fun we were going to experience. We were met on the beach by our two dazzling Costa Rican guides. From the word go, we were putty in their hands; girls and boys alike… After half an hour of […]

TNS456 11/02/2016  Today, all but two of the voyage crew have gone off in skiffs around the mangroves of Drake Bay. All of the permanent crew and the two remaining voyage crew have spent the day working. I would just like to highlight the amount of work carried out by the crew behind the scenes, that few people get […]

TNS456 10/02/2016 We are now on our way to Drake’s Bay after an exhausting evening spent at a quiz. Our watch did brilliantly; coming a healthy last, tied with the BMs. Grahame’s watch won and have not allowed us to forget it since. The weather is really lovely today with some more breeze to cool us slightly, and we […]

TNS456 09/02/2016 Having been dubbed ‘one of the most unsavoury places in Costa Rica’ by the Rough Guide, Golfito exceeded all expectations. The locals were welcoming and the surrounding area was enchanting and home to several well-known national parks. The town itself did have a slight rough and ready first impression, however is was full […]
