    We had a wonderful experience at Arenal Manoa! The grounds were beautiful and green and we had a great view of the volcano. The staff were very attentive and helped us plan some great activities and tours.

    Another nice hotel quite luxurios compared to the last two night in the Laguna Lodge in Tortuguero National Park.

    AC and TV (Yes I am back to civilization! :-)
    And finally I can dry my laundry.

    Huge bathrooms! Really do they need that much room? They could have spring for a soaker tub and jacuzzi yet they did not. I wonder if they changed their mind afterward. They could use it in the room although they were spacious already. The grounds are amazing and the hotel has a very good vantage point of the volcano. It is so close that you could hear it go off and the shock wave actually cracked the windows facing the volcano.

    The Restaurant is very nicely located with an uninterrupted view of the valley and the Volcano as well.

    Golf Cart system to drive you around the property-So I heard as I never got to use it.

This town, now La Fortuna felt very fortunate, hence the name change from El Burio. Central American tid-bits: When you read the cost of something on the menu be prepared to pay more because tax (15%) and (voluntary? 10%) tip will be added when you go to settle your bill. So buyer ...

    ... and paddle. Once we were on the raft the guide taught us how to row as a team. The commands were relatively easy; forward, right forward (the right side of the boat would paddle forward while the left paddled backward) left forward, backward, hold on, and get down (when he says this command you best follow it quickly). Once we had all of those in mind it was time to set off downriver. It was unbelievably fun. I was in front so I took a lot of water to the face. I also had ...

    ... It was a quick walk to the centre of the city, where there was a pedestrian walk for many blocks. The City is not very impressive. It is not as old as some of the towns in Central America, so there isn't much history or sites. In fact Gadventures doesn't even give a tour of the city. Today (Friday) we were up early and in a van with our group on our way to Fortuna. Fortuna is on a lake at the base of the volcano Arenal. It had been active until 4 years ago. It must have been ...

Those opposing it included the hoteliers of the region (if the roads are bad, you make a multi day stay in the region instead of a day trip) and the Quakers who settled here in the 50s from the States because of their non violence stance that aligns with the philosophy of Costa Rica. (Why they didn't want the road paved, I do not know). As ...
