The second time we went to Puntarenas, a group of 11 crew members got together to go on a zip lining tour over the rain forest. We all met off the gang way around 8 in the morning and were picked up by a representative of www.crew-tours.com. Jesus corralled our group and some others into a small tour van and drove us the 45 minutes into the mountains beyond the city. The drive up was spectacular. Along the way we past the Sardimar Tuna Canning factory, a prison, several curches…. and mango trees dripping with fruit. He also told us some history of Costa Rica and showed us the fruit that a cashew comes from. I really had no idea that the small sweet nut was the seed on the top of a fruit that looks a bit like a small macintosh apple. He cut one apart so we could taste it. Sweet and juicy, the flavor was alot like an apple too. The part that I found fascinating is that the cashew cannot be eaten raw and that it could actually cause blindness if not handled properly.
