Cerro Tortuguero: is it a mountain or a hill?

Who care’s, its ruddy good fun, even if you do take the long route up. New volunteers “Ooow”-ed and “Awww”-ed at the cute little strawberry poison-dart frogs (Dendrobates pumillio), as they plodded through rainforest terrain for the best part of an hour.

They could smell the sweet misty air of the summit, before they even laid eyes upon its view, which none were disappointed with, inspiring comments such as:

“This is cool” (Brian Lami), “This is neat” (Brandi Berchard), “At this moment, I realise that Belinda Carlisle was telling the truth, Heaven IS a place on earth” (Jack Roper)

Some photos to prove it:
