Our transfer shuttle arrives at 7:15. I booked us a shared shuttle for $40 per person. However, we are the only people on the shuttle. This feels a little weird, but maybe no one else booked the same transfer between these two particular cities. It makes me a little uneasy just because of all the stories I've heard about Costa Rica.

... tall trees. I can't say how far these runs were (the guide SAID one was half a mile long but I'm not so sure about that) or how fast you go, but "exhilarating" MIGHT apply here.

In the afternoon we decided to go for a drive around Arenal Volcano to the village of El Castillo. The road to get there is ...
... to shop and get lunch. I LOVED the batidos (?) de banano (banana shakes) that me, kallyn, and ian got. They were amazing! I got a chicken parm and it was good :) then we ventured into some shops, a geladería (gelado place), frutería (fruit store) y una panadería (bakery). I bought a DELISH pastry! We later went to the hot springs and it was so cool!! It was like a straight up resort, but the springs were still amazing. They get hotter ...
