TravelPod Member ReviewsArenal Lodge La Fortuna
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.

Back in town, I grabbed some lunch and checked out the location of the bus station, as I was likely to need to use it tomorrow.

Tomorrow is a moving day and another very early start.

For supper Erin and I had chicken in a pineapple sauce, Larry had a pork chop, and Derek had Seafood Fettucini. For dessert they brought a jelly roll cake.
After supper we went back to the bar to drink, blog, and look at pictures.
... the cages, to spread birdseed and banana slices along their feeding trays. That was very weird to actually be inside the cage, with the birds flying all around us.
We finished the feedings with the rest of the monkeys, letting them take the fruit from our hands again. And then the coatis. For them we could only push the fruit through the small holes in the cage, and wait for them to take it. They were super-cute.
And that was the end of our tour. It was ...
... walking it felt so much longer but we eventually made it back, to be welcomed by some ice tea in the van. The next stop was the hot springs. Omg they were so nice. Not as natural as they had previously described or compared to the Icelandic ones I went in but still so good. We had dinner beforehand where I had some well good fajitas. There was about 5 small pools all ranging in hotness and lap couple of them had slides and one had a bar too! ...
