... and lemon, spin again. The lemons and avocados were from the farm of Dona Olivia. As I was cutting the veggies she told me to put the extra pieces aside for the cucina Cochinas (sp?), the kitchen pigs, aka the chefs who eat all of the extra food. One simple tasty snack was an avocado sprinkled with salt and scooped out of the skin. Meanwhile, Paul and josh tidied up the store. Paul introduced josh to mindfulness. Wax on, wax off. Dusting. ...

We saw that the National Museum had a butterfly enclosure so we figured we would pop in and have a look. We quickly discovered taking photos of butterflies while their wings were open was ...

First stop: La Fortuna

A travel blog entry by slmackay


... We looked at a few options before finding a tour company that was doing a private horse riding tour around the other side of the national park which sounded cool. I haven't been on a horse for years so was glad that it would only be Anna and the instructor who would be there!

After some initial problems getting my horse Piquolin to move we were soon on our way. Our first stop was the Fortuna waterfall. We left the horses to rest and climbed down to the falls. We had ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Arenal Springs Resort And Spa La Fortuna

    Had a great stay


    There were 4 of us (2 couples in our 50's) and we stayed here in early Nov. Our check in with Ruth was very quick and friendly upon arrival. They gave us a really good fruit smoothie type drink in a champagne flute. A nice touch. When we booked we had requested rooms in the 100 block. When we got to our rooms they were in 200 block, but Ruth was quick to make the change for us. We like the 100 block of rooms because they look out onto the beautiful gorunds, rather then other cabins. Although all the rooms have great views of the volcano when it's not clouded over. The rooms are really nice size, very clean and have gardens in the showers. The front porches a very private and have great rocking chairs to kick back and take in the awesome veiws of the volcano and beautiful grounds. Be sure to leave your curtains open at night so you can watch the show the volcano gives right from your bed. The buffet breakfast included in the room rate was quite good. We had one dinner which was very good also. The waiters gave great service and were very friendly. My only complaint would be that the walls are thin and we could here our neighbors, but our friends said they couldn't here their neighbors. Maybe we just had noisy ones. I would definantely stay here again.

    Good place


    Just got back yesterday from Costa Rica. We stayed at this hotel for 3 days/4 nights. The people were friendly and very easy to deal with. The breakfasts were good and restaurant prices were fair. The rooms had a nice view and were very comfortable. The only real negative thing that bothered my husband and I was that they did not clean the room on a daily basis. The staff would bring fresh towels and make the bed, however their was no cleaning of any kind. But overall, I would recommend this hotel to everyone.

    Good hotel with very nice people.


    The hotel was very nice. It was a little far from the main road but that was ok becasue we had rented a car. The service was very good, the AC broke down in our room, once we told them of the failure they quickly placed us in a new room. Overall this is a good hotel. I would avoid the tour from the hotel direct because you can get them much cheaper. Go into town where you can get tours at a cheaper price.

    A great place to stay


    We booked on Expedia for a stay at the Arenal Volcano Inn for Easter 2006 but when we arrived at 11 pm after a long flight/drive they had given our room away despite a confirmation phone call and were not very apologetic.

    Cute hotel-nice views


    This is a nice, clean hotel with large ceiling to floor windows overlooking the volcano. The volcano no longer spews from this have to go towards the park entrance side to catch the lave.

    Rooms are clean. Bathrooms are larger than average. Restaurant is good and well priced. Nice stay!

    Loved arenal Springs resort


    We stayed at the arenal springs resort for two nights. The room was clean and well furnished, and had a great view of the Arenal volcano. (the eruption is on the other side, so cannot see lava from this resort). The resort has a beautiful setting, and we saw a lot of hummingbirds, yellowbreasts, and even couple of toucans during our stay here.

    Good Value


    We stayed at Arenal Springs with two children on November 25. As others have noted, the Resort's restaurant is still under construction and the pool is not heated. A special rate on the rooms made up for these inconveniences and we felt that the resort provided a good value for the money we spent.

    Great resort - will be even better soon


    Just spent three nights here in late November. We got a special "spring rate" of roughly $86.00 per night. The cabins are side by sides - two per building. The showers are great - there are flowers growing in your shower! The rooms are spacious - and one wall is pretty much all glass to look out on the volcano. When you wake up in the morning - boom! There it is. There are tvs in the rooms - which we didn't use, and a fridge, which we did. The porches have great rocking chairs on them. The rooms are also very eco-friendly - there is a key box inside the room - and your lights/electric won't work unless you are in the room and the key is in the box, so you can't leave and leave the air and lights on. There are also in room safes that we never figured out how to use.

    Under Construction


    My review is an "above average" with strings attached because this resort is currently under construction. The room was beautiful, new, clean, the service was good and the view was breathtaking! You can't ask for to much more (except food and drinks)! We would like to go back and stay here but we plan to wait until construction is finished.

    Under Construction


    I say above average as a review with strings attached. This hotel is under construction which is the reason for the current discounted rate. However, the rooms are beautiful! Brand new! The view was awesome! We even got towel animals and fresh flowers in out room!! I will definately go back when the hotel is finished with construction. There was a great breakfast served every morning that was included in the lodging costs but no other resturant nor bar on site. It appeared that a poolside bar was under construction as well as a resturant. Not having an on site resturant can be a hassle especially if you have been adventuring all day and get dropped off at your hotel (even if you have a rental car the tour companies pick up and drop off at your hotel is built in the tour prices) for much needed food/drinks and rest and you have to turn around and get a cab or get back in your car to find a something to eat. Plus Costa Ricans are really laid back and do not seem to be in any hurry to get a meal to you, so don't go to a resturant really hungry! This laid back attitude really grew on me after a week there so don't worry! We had a great time in Lafortuna and Arenal. We did a canopy tour, a rafting excursion, Tabacon Springs(breathtaking springs!) and a sunset volcano hike. Memories for a lifetime were built here. All of the tours we did were with the Sunset tour group- what a great tour group. But a word to the wise- If you negotiate a price for the tours directly with the tour outfitter you will get a better deal than the hotel offers you.
