... clouds obscuring the volcano..... Show yourself Arenal!!! We walk down one of the trails where we can hear howler monkeys and eventually we see them in the trees above. It starts raining so we head back to our room, in the gardens I see a family of coatis, but they disappear from view, we go into our room and hear a commotion outside below our balcony, the coatis! There's about 20 of them snuffling around for food, climbing ...

As our guide explained, this is in contrast to the ...
... he's a forest fireman! That's pretty cool! We were planning on catching a local bus to Rivas and then another to the border. Upon arriving at the bus which wasn't leaving for another hour, we found lots of people in the same boat, so ended up spitting taxis instead to save time. Only $5 each so not too bad. We teamed up with this Dutch dude and made our way to Rivas. Upon arriving we went to 2 bus companies. One was full, the other didn't ...
