Es ging mit dem Boot über die Laguna de Arenal und dann nach Monteverde, einem feuchten und dicht bewachsenen Regenwald.

Horseback riding from Lake Arenal

A travel blog entry by jessi330


We got up early 6:15am, took our bags outside to organize so we wouldn't disturb the others. That's one thing that drives me crazy is someone diggning through their bags really early or really late. The plastic bags crinkling or the zippers.

We really wanted espresso coffee and we saw some shops. So, I stood waiting for our pickup and …

Jeep Boat Jeep is ineptly named, more like minivan, punt, minivan. Not so impressive but more true.

On the day, It was pouring with rain the entire time during …

    I was recommended this hostel by another traveler. We showed up without a reservation and they only had a private room. $40usd and it had a kitchen, dining table, huge bed and a great view - when there weren't clouds. It was nice.

    We stayed in a lovely room, fantastic value. The owners were really welcoming and friendly, always had time to chat. We went ziplining, which was incredible, arranged through the hostel.

    The kitchen is nice, you have free breakfast, tea and coffee and wifi and internet.

    I'd really recommend staying here.
