Went back to the hot springs at Tabacon in the morning, enjoyed the springs, swim up bar and saw up first iguana in CR and the basilisk lizard there. Drove around the lake seeing a male coati right on the shoulder
. Stopped for lunch in Nuevo Arenal, stopped by the German bakery and then to Tileran and the dreaded 30 Km of dirt road. Most of it wasn't that bad and even the rougher section were not as bad as the road to hotel Chachagua south of Arenal. It took an hour on that section but the scenery is magnificent. We finally got here found the rustic lodge easily and walked into town for dinner where we ate in the tree house and reserved a guide for Monteverde reserve the next morning.
Woke up the earliest we have since we've been here and another couple's guide walked in and asked if we had seen the unicorn beetle outside the door. Of course we all walked right by it. I had seen pictures but it was huge. I held it, it now my new Facebook foto. Got to monteverde and realized we left our prepaid voucher at the hotel. It was either pay again and see if they would refund or drive back to the hotel. We charged forward. There were about three groups close together. Our guide located a hooded parrot and then the quetzal, there was a male and female in he area and we were able to see the male though partially blocked by the leaves. We got some good pictures taken though the guides telescope. It's time for our night tour so will finish this later.
