This is a photo of one of the boats used for the wildlife river trips on the Tempisque River in Palo Verde National Park. These trips are similar to the Jungle Cruise at Disney World, except the animals are real, and the river guides do not tell a bunch of corny jokes and puns.

There are tour guides who make the arrangements and drive visitors from Tamarindo to the river dock where the boats start their wildlife tours. I have been on this trip 5 or 6 times. The photos I have posted recently of the crocodiles and white-faced Capuchin monkeys were taken on one of these trips that I took with my brother-in-law last month.

We are showing photos of the architectural details of Budapest, Hungary this week on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.

This boat is a little different than the one I took with Julie a couple of years ago. This is truly a place where you want to keep your hands and arms inside the boat.

The boat looks like it can make a fast get-away when necessary.

I thought it would be a bigger boat. I'm not sure I would feel safe this close to the water. But then I am known to be a "fraidy cat".
