Following a nice breakfast in San Jose in our hotel's open-air restaurant in a beautiful garden, our driver, Alex, picked us up for a 4 hour drive to our hotel near the active Arenal volcano. He chose to take us on a scenic, two-lane curvy, bumpy road which led us up into the eastern mountains on our way to the central valley. On the way he made …

... picking of the coffee berries, to the drying, shelling and roasting of the beans, complete with a taste test at the end. But wait there's more. You will also get a rundown of how the farm produces chocolate (which is planted alongside coffee to give the soil a good mix of nutrients). You will get to taste the disgustingly slimy cocao beans (freshly cut from a huge seedpod), they will show you the process that it takes to make the tasty chocolate we ...

... rejects and had lots of quality problems. Thankfully the pancakes made up for it! We went to Skytrek which is a canopy zip line place just by Arenal volcano. Arenal is active and until recently you could see lava coming out of the top. We could see some smoke coming out which was exciting enough for me!! We got a cable car up to the top of the zip lines and after a few practice goes we were ready. There were 8 main wires of different lengths, ...

... with wheeley suitcases) through Central America.

We got on the bus and enjoyed a really scenic drive past beautiful Lake Arenal, rainforest and volcanoes. We arrived into La Fortuna an hour earlier than we expected, which was a little annoying as our shuttle wasn't due for another 2 hours. La Fortuna is a souless tourist town in which every other shop is a tour agency offering a selection of tours to the local sights and activities. They were all so expensive and none ...

    The staff is helpful, it is clean as a whistle and the view is incredible of the Arenal volcano. You will love the pool and I highly recommend it.

    Okay, I'm writing this on the first night, so it's possible that my views will change. However, the service and room so far have been excellent. Clean rooms (huge bed!), polite staff, a pool with a swim-up bar. Now, take all this with the knowledge that I've never really used a booking agency before, so I tend to find myself the cheapest hotel with a/c and internet that I can. Maybe for people who are used to higher-end resort stays this place isn't so special. Nevertheless, I'm impressed and our room has a lovely balcony looking out on the Arenal volcano! Oh, did I mention the complimentary drink when we arrived?
