    ... we had found on our first trip, Novillito's, for dinner, and were pleased when we walked in and the waiter looked at us and said "Alaska!". Food was again quite tasty, including Mother's experiment with Arroz con Pollo.

    Early to rise on Monday morning, we drove around the volcano and took that terrible unpaved road towards El Castillo again, this time stopping at the Sky Trek/Sky Tram adventure we had previously scouted. ...

    ... to work out what her motivation was for this activity.

    Possibly trying to scare herself to death?

    She certainly did a good job of terrifying her kids.

    Personally had a blast and there were some terrific views as you swung through the rainforest canopy. The only downside was that it was difficult to take photos, as we had to wear thick gloves on both hands. A leather one was used as a brake on the cable, while the other was simply to ...

    ... scale of 6 so quite easy and lots of fun! We only went with 2 rafts and had two additional canoe's for safety. We had a lot of fun with everyone in the group and to see the rain forest from the river is amazing!! We saw sloth bears in the trees. They are very cute! Apparently they sleep all day. .

    Our next stop will be Monteverde, a three hour drive from Arenal.

    ... to get between the two places - a bumpy, windy 6 hour bus ride, a 3 hour horseback trip but not in 'green' season or the fastest 'jeep-boat-jeep' option.

    We choose the latter option. It wasn't a jeep that picked us up, but it was a rather nice bus. We were taken back along the road we came to La Fortuna on but this time we were dropped at the lake. We carried our bags down to the shore and put them on a small launch which took us across ...
