Estuary Boat Ride:
There were many animals in the estuary. There were a lot of different types of birds. I think the biggest one that we saw was a black hawk. Some of us saw caimans, but I didnt. Caimans are like crocodiles. There were baby ones swimming underneath the roots of the mangrove trees. We also saw crabs and heard cicadas. There were tons of cicadas and they were extremely loud.

Our trip to Costa Rica was so much fun. We have learned a lot about the different types of plants, animals, and forests. I especially enjoyed our hikes through the forests and the horseback rides. I will never forget the many sights that we saw on all of the trails. The monkeys were amazing and I loved seeing all of the other plants and animals. The whole experience of travelling to Costa Rica was very rewarding.
