The “Tarzan” Tree House

Can you believe that the tree house they assigned me to this year is named “Tarzan?” And I love it! Like they knew the little boy Charlie wanted to be Tarzan! Why it even comes with grape vines (see outside views) though I will not be swinging on them! And I was welcomed to my room by a visiting Keel-billed Toucan! See photo below.

And I doubt that Tarzan had a King sized bed or screens and ceiling fans, but I’m sure glad I do! It is hot and humid here like where I grew up in south Arkansas near the Louisiana line – hotter and more humid than Atenas which is in the hills.

Our 3 hour drive took 4 hours with a lot of trucks on the roads today and the gravel road portion of the drive was in pretty rough condition – what it costs to get to real wilderness! 🙂 And yes, we are all wearing masks here, Costa Rica is smart enough to require it and everyone working here is in the same family – cool! And so nice! I’m the only guest until Friday when there will be 8 to 10 other guests for the weekend.

  1. Hey Charlie, we had grape vines in North Louisiana near you and I and other kids did swing on them. No I would not do it today unless they were close to the ground.

  2. What a wonderful place to celebrate your 80th birthday! And, on July 4 – YOU CAN BE TARZAN. All your photographs in this post are beautiful. I am so impressed with your lodging and the “jungle” which surrounds you. Enjoy your time there and your birthday celebration.
