July 27, 2012 - With Illa's visit coming to a close, we made out way back to Playas del Coco, but this time we had our eye on the top-end resort there, Rancho Armadillo.
On the way back, we stopped at Las Pumas, a refuge for local wildlife. Started as a wild cat sanctuary, it now houses about eighty different species of pelted and feathered wildlife.
This little guy used to be a pet and really wanted a cuddle, but his beak just looked a tad too sharp.
Rancho Armadillo was amazing and we had the place to ourselves.
From the hammocks on the overlook, we could see the ocean and hear howler monkeys all around us.
A nice dinner at Villa Italia that evening rounded out a fabulous week.
