Tortuguero, Costa Rica sunset

On the third day of our Costa Rica vacation we were driven to the boat dock where we then taken by boat to our Tortuguero Laguna Lodge. We spent two nights at Tortuguero. Our lodge in a National park that is located between the canal and the Caribbean Sea. It was also a  great location for the sunrises on the Caribbean, the wildlife and birds were amazing. But, the first evening we sat and watched the sunset near the canal and listened to the howler monkeys. These are a couple of my sunset shots that first evening of our stay.
