Weekly Photo Challenge: The Road Taken

The weekly photo challenge is The Road Taken

“Roads are long; make them short with a good company!” ― Mehmet Murat ildan

When we have visitors, we always take them to Charco Verde on Ometepe Island. I’ve written about this beautiful place many times, Place Where the Gods Pee.  Yet, we always discover new things along the path taken through the Charco Verde Nature Reserve. 
The path starts in a field of flowering vines and plantains.

The Howler monkeys chatter in the treetops and their loud howls can be heard reverberating throughout the reserve.

  1. We loved our stay at the Chaco Verde Hotel (late spring, 2014)and walked the path several times because the howler monkeys were so much fun to watch. I especially remember the Butterfly House (which I think may have just opened ?) and spending a couple of enchanted hours watching the butterflies. So peaceful! Anita
