Half an hour in a boat took us to our next place to stay, Cano Palma where we caught this stunning Royal flycatcher mentioned in a previous blog.Cano Palma is the Canadian biological station for COTERC
It is the fifth site that has been part of the Tortuguero Integrated Bird Monitoring Programme since 1994.
Plenty of reptiles were about, the most colourful being these tiny strawberry poison-dart frogs (Dendrobates pumilio)

Even that couldn't spoil our brief stay in this wonderful location and we left for the next step in our adventure with a yearning to return.
