Central America

Magnificent Hummingbird

We have been to two wonderful Central American countries: Belize and Costa Rica.  They are very different.  Belize has a small population, is English speaking and has the largest barrier reef in the Americas.  Costa Rica is quite populated and Spanish speaking with large mountains and active volcanos.  I hope to go back to both of these countries.

I always wondered what a sloth looked like and I liked the look we got in Costa Rica.  This three-toed sloth was hiding in a tree in Tortuguero National Park.  The sloth appeared very shy and gentle.
