    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.

    It was a repeat of yesterday's buffet breakfast while bird watching. It is worth noting that the pancakes were really good and we don't think the locals ever eat pancakes! A herd of seven horses grazed in an open pasture beyond the infinity pool and we decided to check it out right after breakfast. After passing through the gate, a trail led …

    Happy Birthday, Mom! We woke to light rain and no view of Arenal. The lodge offered a good complimentary buffet breakfast: scrambled eggs, sausage, fried plantains, beans & rice, pancakes, several kinds of fresh fruit, juice, coffee and an assortment of continental breakfast items. While eating breakfast, we watched the birds feeding on the …

    We were packed, had breakfast and were ready to head to Arenal by 9:00. The Magellan staff were good to us throughout our stay, several of which had worked there during our previous visit three years ago. When we told Terry that we were headed to Arenal, she highly recommended doing a zipline.

    I really want to see a smoking volcano...

    ... 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.
