    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.

    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 …

    ... into our helmets, naming ourselves the rapid rabbits. The first small rapid we hit was great fun and was accompanied with squeals and a few of our limbs flying all over the place. Waves were coming over the raft left right and centre and I swear just targeting me. It was a struggle to hold on whilst still paddling and this came to a head when a particularly large wave bounced the raft and sent me flying out of the boat **** first onto the surroundings rocks!! Luckily ...

    ... again. We had a pit stop at Restaurant Las Iguanas, where there was a viewing deck to see some really big iguanas in the trees. But one of them had ventured onto the deck and was checking out the inside of a trash can. Very cool.

    For lunch we stopped at Rancho Mi Tato, a small open-air restaurant right on the side of the road. I got the casado con pollo (with chicken) which was served on a banana leaf! It was good, although I was surprised the chicken was fried.

    ... American yellow bus and after walking the hills of the town yesterday, I am intrigued to see how this bus will manage to get around the bends and up the hills with other traffic on the road. But it does well and we make our way towards the reserve. When we realise where we are, we notice that we actually weren't far from the reserve on our trek yesterday. We pay the $20 admission fee each and head into the forest. We are given a trek guideline for the ...

    ... less visitors than Monte Verde which has a reputation for being too crowded. We must have chosen well because we hardly saw anyone as we walked around the park for a couple of hours. It's a very special place here. It's wet all the time and was windy today. Despite that it had a magical atmosphere. The track was fairly challenging. Supposedly there is a place where you can view the Pacific and Caribbean coasts simultaneously if the sky is clear. The sky ...
