Pics from my honeymoon. These are all from phones and we aren't photographers at all. But some cool stuff we saw and did, in no particular order...

Coffee farm...



Pour over brewer. They put ground coffee in this, pour boiling water over it and they repeat pouring it over the grounds several times. Very good coffee.



Rainforest waterfall...
How it's supposed to look



How it looks when it's down pouring. Tour guide said she never saw so much rain as on our tour.



Where the hell is the trail now...


Animals around the resort.








Squirrel nuts



Flock of parrots just off my balcony.



This hawk of some sort hunted the resort property for the entire trip.



A couple random pics.


So heights, not really my thing. Nervous smile.


The sloths were right near the coffee farm. We are pretty sure they plant this sloth in a low branch and then bring us to it. They act like it's just a wild sloth. The wild ones we saw were high up in the trees. They informed us that young sloths are lower and then the guide goes to find one, then rushes back to lead the tour to the young sloth he "found". Pretty sure they just have a pet that they place for tours. But it was cool anyhow...


Sunset catamaran cruise was awesome. Best sunset ever.

Glad you had fun on the honeymoon!

Makes me miss Central America!

Those are actually coatis. I’ll find a closer picture. They were all over the resort. They are like tacooons, in the trash and all over things. The resort staff considered them pests.

Much like the trash-pandas up here.
Curious and smart lil buggers, but they will tear some shit up!

It was either a Coati or a Kinkaju in Panama, 1992-93... but that lil bastard snatched up my canteen and ran off. Lil shit is probably still drinking out of it.
