Beautiful day!

We left at 10 because of a landslide but instead of sending us a message on what's app which we had already sent questions on we went all the way to the store and were told we had to wait for an hour and a half. The rest of the day was great. It would have been nice to know to take a wet bag for the hike after swimming in the rainforest. Take more than a water bottle
