We are back in Panama but I had one more set of photos I wanted to share. This is another well known area of Ometepe Island, and with good reason. It was absolutely beautiful, and there are also howler monkeys that live in that area. It is on the south side of the island within reasonable biking distance from Moyogalpa. As you will see, we had a perfect, sunny day to go explore this area.
The area is beautiful, and there are many plants and flowers at the entrance to the park.
We find the lagoon
There are some amazing trees!
Thunderheads loom over the lagoon
The pathways are pretty and well maintained. It is possible to bike on most of them.
There was a fairly large family, and they were crossing through the trees right above us.

we saw two moms and babies
A number of them stopped and stared at us for a little while.
Another mom and baby
The beach was also beautiful
Another great tree

A beach, clouds, and a volcano!
The paths go through beautiful jungles
Check out this tree! It says don’t write on the bark, but many obviously didn’t heed it.
a huge tree!
leaving the park, there is a beautiful view of the volcano.
This little girl was going home from school. When I asked if I could take a photo she dissolved into giggles.
