    Property location has a great view. Received an upgrade on checkin to the honeymoon suite. Not impressive at all. Beds very uncomfortable, room drafty (windows did not all close). Other furniture in room in need of replacement. Much deferred maintenance on rooms. Lodge o.k., small gym, restaurant expensive for the mediocre quality it was, except for the breakfast which was excellent. You need a car here. Staff was helpful., but for the price I Would stay elsewhere if I returned to Arenal again.

    ... amend that, I will accept seeing an entire volcano, smoking or not! Arenal is one of the "big three" destinations in CR. With endless tours, zip lining, atv rental and all levels of accomodation easily available, it turned out to be a very touristed local. I could see this as a good family desination as there was just about …

    Oct 31. So the last leg of the journey commences with a flight from Lima to San Jose. Armed with my shot record proving I did have a yellow fever shot I approacvhed every official I could find but no one was interested despite all the dire warnings about needing such documentation. This "requirement" falls into the same category as the prohibition on hiking sticks at Machu Picchu or the 20 liter bag limit on the train to M-P.

    ... It was dramatic, loud and pristine and its waters cool but not too cold. We chose not to swim because of the feast of the activities we had lined up for the day. School and College groups from USA and Canada were there enjoying a Central American experience. After chatting, taking photos and enjoying the surroundings we began the 500 step climb back to the top. The monkeys were still there. We decided that they were looking at all the people down in the water ...

    To Sam:
    After 15 years together, I thought I knew you well. And I did. You are Superman. You can do anything and everything - better than most anyone else. But this year I have learned new facets to your personality that have never revealed themselves to me until now. You have shown me your vulnerable side, your emotional side, and a part of you that really needs ...

    ... trusting only the cable was a leap each time. Gulp. Whiz. Then, soon the sight of Alex on the next platform waiting for me to arrive! So I'll be honest: I was somewhat unfocused at first. Alex did brilliantly right away but was not wanting to use my phone to take my picture. Phil was behind me and did procure some evidence of me taking flight but did so with the digital camera. Thus, I have no access to it till we get home. You will have to trust me that I did each of the runs by my ...
