Lara Reserve Cave

To break up the tedium of our days, Paul takes us on excursions to other parts of the island. This is in Lara Reserve where they protect sea turtles from predators including humans. Paul took us down this cave which entailed some chimney style descent, some swinging into a crevasse, and the shimmying out of a crevasse barely the thickness of a human being. It was terrifying but exhilarating the entire time.
