TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel La Puerta del Sol Playas del Coco
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.

Today was the fullest day I have had in Costa Rica. Like Sallie and I say we killed La Fortuna. We began our day with ziplining. I have been before but I find that the older I get the more I am afraid of taking risks. This doesn't stop me but it did have concerned that I would hesitate with the height of the ziplining. I didn't! I felt confident, safe and enjoyed myself the whole time. Our guides were awesome. ...
... ok I do know why ;) ). The Sights We did pull ourselves away from sitting by the water some. We took a boat tour one day and went snorkeling (okay still on the water). We also went out to Arenal Volcano and did a nature hike through the rainforest. I was quite disappointed that we didn't get better views of the volcano.

After a well deserved lunch with humming birds we continue to La Fortuna where the rafting guides serve us some nice (and very strong) cocktails in their office before we move on to natural hot springs of Arenal volcano. Total relaxation as we float in warm waters in ...
... really tight though so I couldn't actually undo the knot holding the buoy to the rope so Martin eventually did it. Which was lucky really as I would have needed someone to actually hold the buoy while I undid the knot, octopus I am not. Then under the water we went. The visibility was horrible and there was a really strong current. To try and keep together we all linked arms around my anchored buoy line. So remember the mask that didn't fit my face? Every couple ...
... didn't fancy climbing two hours through wet hillside to see a volcano that was not performing! I'd rather go for a walk in the Malverns. The rain kept coming.... I went around some of the other agencies... Didn't feel like quad-biking, zip-wiring etc... Thought that visit to Butterfly farm would be fun until somebody told me it was rubbish...Took a taxi back to the Hotel. Depressed.
Decided that I would head back to the UK, talked to Alexandra and booked to fly back ...
