Canopy (zip line) tour and Tabacon hot springs

... from the zip line experience we were very hungry and the food at the place was not bad. We had these great Maracuya (passion fruit) mojitos. Then it started to rain.

What better way to spend a rainy day than at a hot spring? We decided to spend the rest of the day at Tabacon Springs. A very nice resort with natural hot springs. A lot of the pictures look cloudy because of the steam. I loved it. Their ...

... reality that this is indeed a hostel. We spent our first day here relaxing and planning our trip to the volcano. Luckily, no one in our group was feeling up to hiking, so we booked a tour with a nice walk, a view of the volcano and a mud mask hot spring dip to finish.

Jueves 9 - Sabado 11 Enero

After a nice 3.5 hour bus-boat-bus (even though they tell you it's jeep-boat-jeep) journey from Monteverde, we arrived in the picturesque surrounds of La Fortuna. From the peaceful, but choppy, Lago Arenal, to the horizon-dominating peaks of Volcan Arenal and Cerro Chatto. La Fortuna is one of a small number of places we wish we had stayed longer to enjoy the natural surrounds and abundance of activities (many of them free). Along the journey we met ...
