    As of late this afternoon, nobody else in town had signed up for the half day Matapalo tour at the agencies I inquired at, so I schlepped on over to Osa Wild and booked a full day Corcovado Tour, which proceeds a few kilometers into the jungle from the southern end of Corcovado National Park. I was stoked to give some business to Osa Wild, since they do a lot to give back to the local community.

    Back at the Oro Verde Hostel, the room I was sleeping in got crowded as a girl from San Diego, California moved in. She was visiting the area to volunteer for six weeks on a produce farm just outside Peurto Jimenez. We chatted for an hour about our lives and traveling. It was nice to hang out with someone from back home for a change. Later, three young bucks from England and France also checked into our room. The room was full and then some, as the hostel owner threw a foam mattress down on the floor for the third guy. In fact, the whole hostel was full, as well. He even had to buy a couple of new fans.
