With no car, and taxi's really expensive to our remote hotel location, we opted to take the 2:15 employee shuttle into town. The shuttle was full, but my new good friend Alex rearranged a couple employees and got us seats.

    La Fortuna is best known as the town that survived the 1968 violent eruption of the Arenal volcano. Three other towns were wiped out and ...
