Costa Rica Cruise Immerses You in All of Nature’s Awe
By Janice & George Mucalov, Sand In My Suitcase
“Do you want to see a snake?” asked Rey, our expedition guide. He’d just been notified by walkie-talkie of a snake ahead of us on the trail. We tromped quickly to a scene worth filming by National Geographic.
The snake was biting into a baby bull frog the size of a tennis-ball, strangling the poor thing at the same time. The plaintive squeals from the frog were heartbreaking. “They’re cries for help,” explained Rey, as we watched in pity and horror. “Yes, it’s sad to us, but it’s nature.”
Nature – in all its awe – was being dug up and tossed at us in spades.
