120 miles by road from San Jose, going N.W., is the Cano Negro river and refuge. With no tourists in sight, we took a small boat up the river, well stocked with birds, monkeys and Caymans. This Cayman came down to the edge to inspect me. Like the larger Crocs and Gators, the close you get the more amazing and intimidating they become. Costa Rica has some parks not so abundant with wildlife, but not this one. Cano Negro gets a thumbs up!
