The most warmer place I visited was called Hacienda Pozo Azul. This is where we stayed when we were in Sarapiquí, and it was located right inside the forest. At night I could hear all of the monkeys moving around in the trees. 

Other Travel News from this week:

On Saturday morning, I finally got to see the local farmer’s market. It was set up just outside of the institute where I go to school. Although it wasn’t too far from where I live, it seemed like I was in a different part of town entirely. The whole area was transformed into a lively shopping center.
