The final stop we made was at La Cangreja National Park, a few hours east of San Jose. After driving from Piedras Blancas and stopping over for a quick lunch, we met the group and I exchanged many hugs with my favourites Elisa and Mariel. We unpacked and set up our sleeping mats and mosquito nets for the night. I then took a shower with a giant spider and we all had dinner by candlelight, followed by a movie quiz before falling asleep on the floor.
It was hard saying bye the following day knowing we were on the final stretch, but there was also a sense of excitement as we recalled previous adventures and unforgettable memories.
