We stopped to scout another hotel for our return visit with Phyllis' mother, and then lunched at Novillito's Steakhouse just outside La Fortuna. We were the only customers, but the food lived up to the Trip Advisor reviews and they seemed really happy to see us. Our server was sweet, gave good recommendations, and then came back to ...

One by one we walked out into what looked like half a bridge high above the trees. A ...
