they use it of a drum to make rituals and dance and play around [Music] so they their average lifetime of this birth of 70 to 90 years so we are here at the international coco um together with sandro he works for the park actually this is like the last remind of a tropical rainforest like a replica from the amazon symphony from south america this is one of the most biodiverse places of the world we're supposed to have more uh life by a square meter than anywhere else in the world this is a place where many species will gather together so that might be one of the places where you can see the most life wildlife example like this is the the best place to see like birds in costa rica like about the 40 percentage of the avi fauna of costa rica is in south costa rica we are supposed to be one of the most eco national parts of costa rica that mean that the relationship of us and wildlife here is a little bit more strict and more different than the rest of costa rica or other places in the world we see a lot of radical changes especially in this part of costa rica you know so it's been a hard process we didn't have any conscience culturally we were hunters and farmers produce you know from land leaving from just from the nature resources until now we have more environment education and we're trying to bring this to local school and teach kids the importance to protect and preserve the nature like about recycling about classifying you know the trash about being more conscious about what eating you know and all those things also like educating teaching them nature like about plants or jaguars or on synapses you know they have a neurotoxic voice on the frogs so it'll give you a paralyzed in your body like i mentioned before without tourism there is no protection because doesn't mean one of the main economies of the country tourism become very important economy there is so many people involved including sunnho who due to the collapse of tourism because of covert 19 had to find other ways to make a living to feed his family so here we are today uh doing a little bit land trip with sandra again our guy from two days ago from national park uh he his parents got a um like a kind of an echo farm we're visiting it they have cacao and coffee plants and we just saw a tucan and uh macau again so all the birds we want to see we saw them here in in costa rica so let's check out the farm [Applause] [Applause] do you have any idea what those two are doing over there ah yes they make laws huh that's enough they are making honor to their nickname the spirit of life really are they making they might be they are very like you can come and look who might be feeding a baby are you treating a baby that's a baby i'm a cow but that's so big out of macaulay a termite they are bothering a termite the macaws can be heard from far away by their squirty voice which sandra referred to as not very sexy he said in the bird's world it's pretty much like in the one of humans the less colorful and pretty you are the more effort you have to put into other qualities such as a beautiful singing voice to be recognized which the handsome ones don't need sounds quite reasonable doesn't it most of the time males have more colors than females medium speed societies but when they get larger they kind of love that [Music] with its large beak the tucon can easily crack hard nuts and kernels sangro said he can make out a tucon by the distinctive noise it makes when flying as this is not necessarily their strength with their huge and rather heavy beak [Music] this is the government release a little bit money for their for the village here they can build a soccer field and a school and a kind of a sports center so they develop really fast here location among the cacao to see how it goes orders they are doing in primary forest or they're in secondary other than open areas to see which ones go better yeah we have a lot of natives eight species nated from central america from costa rica so we are like using four of them to see how they they are a lot of these pieces we brought them from the tourists in the producers so anybody can come here with even with a wheelchair and [Music] okay how you plant the pineapple this is two or three pineapples is fine but sometimes like you plant a thousand pineapples so it's a hard job look at the roots growing here so until now the pineapple is good to plant you can plant it right away but you're risking it maybe it will be too dry you put it in that in that shape you human place so the root will grow now you peel it off and it's ready you put it right there and you are sure you're gonna get water and then we make it pineapples bromelias look similar very similar yeah same family bromelias some of them from the trees all the from the ground this one pineapples are native from north america somewhere mexico but the malanduras that's where the pineapples come from from dry dry climates and dry weather yeah the fruits would be a reason for me to move to a country like this oh man not so nice we can ferment the skin we put all the skin in a container with a little bit brown sugar and then we will ferment in a few days and you can drink it and what does chicha taste like like fermented foods like very strong like alcohol so it's just this dip before alcohol when you make chicha and you ferment the food and then you want to make alcohol you steam it then you get people just drink it before that process yeah it still has alcohol it stays like a beer very strong beer do you like it yes i like it i made my own sometimes it's on the planet of coffee and almost a thousand of cacao this is pieces from brazil and they were brought to colombia and in colombia costa rica costa rica to my farm but this is very new in costa rica actually like that's what i said just like that because a couple years come to costa rica and then i went to one of those farms my family and then i stole some seeds and then i come and bring them here and then i start planting i have three pieces this one looks so green you see to know if the coffee is good the leaf has to look very green so that means that it's producing a lot of chemicals to defend himself that means that he is producing good caffeine to defend himself cafe so probably gonna be a good quality coffee and the coffee will taste like my milk account actually that's the idea when you do um a plantation like biodynamic all mix it because plants will share toxins remember what i tell you about the ants yeah so the trees do the same when you have a monocrop only one thing they lost that and they cannot produce and protect the cell that well yeah so the trick the tricky part of the vanilla is and you have to pollinate by yourself because pollinators are very rare we don't have too many pollinators so a haropon is a leaf than having a hash yet a soft leaf the leaf will come out at some point on top so what you're eating is a young leaf right now we mix it with eggs like a scrambled eggs and cook it it's really good so for the mayas and other civilizations it was a fruit a product given by god by kaksal koat exactly their guts and then they say that guy he was he he feel bad for humans to see them suffering a lot and the wars you know the fighting and a lot of starving you know too much food so they got come to to one of those skins in north america and give him cacao plants so cacao chocolate was only the high levels of society that can't drink a cow because it was something holy only the warriors before they go and fight they will drink cacao make a cacao ceremony which is nothing similar than the chocolate and we see now chocolate chocolate means bitter water so they were drinking a bitter water they do the process of roasting all of that and they mix it with hot pepper hot pepper and they start pouring it you pour it from high and start making bubbles and get very bubbly you after you heat it and rain make it bubbly and you put pepper hot peppers so when you drink it it will have a lot of you know minerals and components that will give you a really actually scientifically good reactions in your body like active active your serotonin your endorphin will just increase in the moment when you're drinking it because that will stimulate so you are like beat up like brock or very tired you drink chocolate very strong without milk you will feel the benefits right away and that's why it's related also with the fruit of love you know like this is super typical around the world to give chocolates to your girlfriend right super all over the world bring chocolate to your girlfriend because we find out that people get happy which when you eat chocolates after you eat first of all the sweet and then also the theobromine will affect your serotonin and you will have the feeling of feeling well and feeling happy so it's good to eat chocolates maybe after we eat chocolate today we'll be feel so much better enough of everyone want us to live happy here you can stop from those seats don't show it it's bitter but you can you can um a sock on the pulp which is sweet exactly right there so after you fermented you put it dry so here's where every typical house in costa rica have one of these cuisines we call them for oneness so where you can have them in them the cow to make it chocolate it has to be processed and refined many times as many times as you refine it and make it smaller and smaller you will get more as a texture of a gummy you know like a squeezy we use it look this is purest chocolate dash chicken sauce the oil chocolate yeah no this is cacao heads yeah yes look at that how greasy look you see it's so greasy oh there it is goodbye and this is actually uh the piece of cocoa if you would leave it in that flesh wolf machine i don't know what it's called and uh it gets hard super super quickly and this is like from from yesterday uh sandro just said and it tastes all right smells a little bit like a cow a little bit like fridge i don't know what else was in the fridge and this is what the cocoa looks like in the end and it's very very rich now it's uh with some water and i put some milk and some sugar in it otherwise it's pretty strong and they said that you can also add like pepper and chili for example chocolate chopped chocolate is bitter water and then we translate it little by little chocolatey it's very like oh [Music] when i came back here it was the termites eat it all the oven it was falling apart so i ran the whole place to my dad and i throw the cabinet and i'm building this one right here and there the idea is to make a little jacuzzi for each cabin a little pool at some point yeah make a little swimming pool some more privacy we were thinking about to make one big for everybody but i said no i would like to be by myself that's perfect for you your family yeah [Music] just before leaving drake bay after a few wonderful days spent there beaten matthias who had also accompanied us on senro's family farm visit offered us some fresh water for our tanks as our leftovers was still the rainwater caught on our pacific crossing bit and matthias have so much solar on deck their trim around sun they can run the water maker and a whole bunch of other electronics like the washing machine midday without any problems and still have more than enough stored in their lithium batteries for the night something we could only dream of as they went for a day sale anyways on their way back they docked next to our boat so guess what the best birthday present was besides spotting the scarlet macaws and the canopies of the trees ashore are anchorage ice cream on board sun and freshly washed laundry in a machine after 4 months oops i hope i didn't just say that out loud but that's the way it is in the pacific if you have no washing machine on board hand wash hand wash hand wash or if you're really lucky to find a facility on our trip exactly found at three spots in french polynesia it's around 15 euros per machine with no guarantee that the laundry returns clean so thank you again and matthias for the many smiles he put on our faces [Music] private sunset tour with some cute dolphins saying bye-bye bye-bye [Music] so we say bye bye to the usa peninsula it has been wonderful he is so pretty uh we could have stayed so much longer if we didn't have to go through the panama canal again and uh yeah so we're going to uh sail parallel to the osa national park um or the colcabado national park on the osa peninsula i hope that the wind is going to stay a bit so we can keep the seals up as there's not a lot of wind here but a lot of sun as you can see on my lip got totally sunburned and yeah it's pretty pretty hard i think we would have loved to travel a little bit more in costa rica it's very laid back and uh so tropical green all these cool birds flying around and also the noises the birds make so pura vida comes up to its name we can tell you thanks for joining us on another episode meeting and learning about the life of a lovely people we met during our costa rica adventures join us in our 390 nautical mile sail to panama with the encounter a bit too close for our taste functions [Music] if you fancy watching our episodes and would like to support our salty sailors with our filming project click on the
