Do you know the way to San Jose..

Rain, rain, and more rain. It hasn’t stopped for days and now its taking its toll all around the Sarapiqui area. The Sarapiqui River has burst its banks, flooding immediate areas and creating chaos for the local people. Some people who work at La Selva have even had their houses completely washed away. The Director of La Selva has been really wonderful with it all, a top guy – so supportive of all his staff, and all who are staying at la Selva. It’s been the highest flood for many years and its been incredible how fast the water level of the river has been able to rise in such a short time. Roads are closed, many landslides in the surrounding areas, bridges affected too.

The floods have eased, but before the last road to San Jose was also closed or affected further by landslides we decided it was time to pack, unfortunately leave La Selva, and head back to the capital. Everyone in our group is completely safe and sound. The next time time someone tells me it rains a lot in Manchester… 🙂
