Nicaragua and Costa Rica Trip Day 25

We went to Rincon de la Vieja national park today to the hacienda Guachipelin and did a bunch of adventure tours.  We went zip lining, rappelling, did Tarzan swings, rock climbing, horse back riding, white water rafted in a tube, went to hot springs and painted ourselves with hot mud.  It was an incredible day!

Getting instructions on how to zip line
Garret.  This zip line was a lot faster than the last one we did, plus Garret had a hard time not spinning around on this one.  He was a little scared on his first run.  Look at the expression on his face in this picture.

Katie side ways rock climbing.  I know there is a name for that, but I can't remember what it's called.

Emily and Katie horseback riding to the river to go white water rafting in a tube

Kirt-I think he forgot to close his mouth

Garret-he got to go tandem with a guide the whole time

Tanner-yes that is him in the bottom picture.  You can tell it is his shoe.

In the hot springs.  One of the pools was so hot none of us except Ben could even get in.
