We stayed here as a result of a diving package through deep blue diving. It is a great hotel, nice rooms, nice pool and grounds. It is a five minute walk from the beach which is all sand and huge. Definitely reccomend.

But we did see monkeys in the trees upon driving to the main gate. Returned to our villa, because I had to see some of the Emmys before we headed to dinner.
... and red berries gelato I had inadvertently discovered that the two flavours combined tasted exactly like my favourite haagan daz ice cream, summer berries and cream which they don't make anymore. Jackpot! We had a few beers and did some shopping and then I went home fairly early as I felt like I was going to doze off in the bar otherwise! Day 53: More snorkelling today, I'm taking a group of 9 teenagers out....should be fun. They were really, really late getting there ...
... to us, saying he was giving us a discount on the tent because of the change of plan. He didn't. Then, perhaps most bizarrely, the hostel used its own exchange rate of colones (local currency) to dollars, meaning it was cheaper to pay for the hostel in dollars, ostensibly because they use a US bank which charges a fee to convert currency..none of us had dollars. So safe to say, our first half hour in La Fortuna wasn't a happy one. It got better once ...
