We took a short drive up from San Jose to the La Paz Waterfall Gardens, about an hour's drive up from the hotel where we stayed near the San Jose's Juan Santamaria International Airport. La Paz Waterfall Gardens has walking trails past waterfalls, and also exhibits of tropical plants and animals.
This photo shows one of the birds in one of the aviaries. Sorry, but I checked in my book of Costa Rica birds and could not find the exact species that this is. It looks to be from the vulture family.
This week photos of the architecture of Ronda, Spain, posted on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.
