Lovely gardens positioned at the foot of Volcan Arenal. Everything was just that little bit extra. Only complaint was the WiFi connection.

... he had rented with his friend, a French girl, so the four of us got in the car and headed to the springs.
Most of the hot springs are part of big resorts but there is a river that you can go to for free that is part of the springs. It was really neat! I've never been in a hot river before, it felt so nice, but it got quite hot after a bit.

A lady on the bus u from san jose af we days before had told us it was the best time to go and see the quetzal that often sits out the front of the entrance. Stunning bird!
