Rancho Margot

We left Rancho Margot today and drove east to Chilamate. Here are a few highlights from our time at Rancho Margot.

– we kayaked across Lake Arenal towards a volcano – we learned how to milk a cow – we developed and shared our definitions of leadership – we went to three yoga classes – we saw piglets that were just a few hours old – we ate the best pineapple ever – we saw a red-eyed tree frog – we talked about natural laws and whether diversity is inherently good – we practiced our active listening – we pushed someone into the biodigester pool (just kidding) – we had negative carbon footprints (this is arguable, but Rancho Margot is nearly self-sufficient and has done a lot of reforestation on their property) – we hiked to a viewpoint overlooking Lake Arenal – we ate worms from the Rancho Margot compost – we all climbed the “tree of life” (a fig tree on a hill) – we explored the town of La Fortuna

Looking forward to rafting tomorrow morning on the Sarapiqui River!
