Hotel Villa LaPas
The hotel Villa LaPas is located 90 minutes west of San Jose on the Pacific Coast. The grounds are lovely. Indeed, around noon
each day groups of people from the cruise ships came on tours of the garden.

Lots of Iguanas lounge around the hotel.  One guy walked boldly up and under Jackie's chair at lunch.


It was fun to watch the leaf cutter ants.


Machette Jackie.


We had wonderful thunder showers each afternoon.

Before breakfast our last morning we walked around the lodge and saw several birds including the Yiguirro below.
