TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel La Bocona Granada
Hotel La Bocona was great. The staff was incredibly nice. The location made for easy walking to historic sites and dinner.
You should know a few things before staying here, however....
1. You have your own bathroom... but it's across a large courtyard. So if you're like me and have to go potty in the middle of the night, it's not the most convenient thing to deal with.
2. Our room was along the street with nothing but shutters and bars between us and all the loud street noise. Yelling, loud cars and lots of honking made sleeping difficult. I'm a light sleeper so I didn't sleep much. So bring some serious ear plugs!
3. No airconditioning, fans only. Sounds like a westerner luxury we could do without... until it's hot as hell and you're trying to sleep. So if being comfortable at night and not sweating like crazy is a big deal to you, I'd advise another spot to stay.

After a short night's sleep, we set off from La Fortuna. The beginning of the route, which led us around Lake Arenal, was absolutely beautiful. Tropical scenery and jungle noises!

... English with a few American missionaries there, make phone calls to my family, eat brownies, and drink coffee that didn't make me gag, I was also able to buy some clothes, which I desperately needed more of. When you don't have a dryer, the washer is shared at times by 15 people, and it rains ALL of the time, three pairs of underwear just doesn't cut it. :O) I bought jeans for the equivalent of $7 and felt the experience was just heavenly. Strangely though, after that ...
