|When you pay for a private float trip you get to sit in the front of the boat!
🙂 Here near end of trip we approach the rookery or nursery in earlier post.
|Even when working, young people have fun on the water!|
|This is one of the government nature reserves.
I think there may be more private reserves than public right now.
|It is currently legal for locals to collect firewood in the reserve as long as
it is already dead wood. In Nicaragua most people still cook on wood fires.
|Non-commercial Fishing is allowed in the reserve.|
|and “Nature Tourism” is growing here!|
|My guide Freddy had new hiking shoes he did not
want to get wet, so boatman carries him across stream.
I got my old shoes wet – no big deal anymore! 🙂
And why didn’t he take them off and go barefoot?
Good question! The boatman is barefoot!
|Where we got our boat was a little “Comedor” which is the same as a
“Soda” in Costa Rica, a small Mom & Pop restaurant for cheap local food.
We did not eat here but got sandwiches at a little local bakery.
