      Great host, clean and cosy wooden cabin style rooms (some with small cute balconies). Good breakfasts of coffee, juice, fruit, eggs, toast and pillo (rice and beans).
      Nice lounge area and the hosts allow guests to make themselves at home in the kitchen.
      Quiet and peaceful, yet a stones throw from one of the main roads.
      Also, it's really close to 'Taco Taco', the best cheap eatery in town!

      Bare-Bones Inn in Santa Elena

      The rooms are incredibly basic. Ours has a queen-size bed plus a twin bed. The queen has a nightstand - and that is the extent of the furniture. No closet, no dresser, no lamp on the nightstand, no desk, no nothing. The lighting is terrible with just one CFL bulb above the entrance and another in the small bathroom, which lacks hot water at the sink as well as a sink stopper. The room is $50/night, which strikes me as a tad high for what you're getting.

      The electricity went out on our second night here. There's no housekeeping service.

      Canyoneering and Rafting

      A travel blog entry by mothman on Apr 25, 2014

      Pick up at 6.15am from hotel in Puerto Viejo, then at about 10am plus we were rafting down the River Paquare! This was quite easy, and good fun, but a long day as we did not arrive at Fortuna Hotel Monte Real (I'd give it four out of five) til about 8pm. Good way to travel though, having the rafting in the middle. I also got well sun burnt on the upper legs.

      We had a lovely meal at Soda Viquez and then went to bed.

      Next day we looked round gardens of hotel ...

      ... sign, camps and summer activities to plan, and taxes to prepare- all evidence of future and a reality that we long for and dread at the same time. I find myself a bit melancholy at times, and I have to remind myself not to grieve the end of our year too soon, or I will miss the perfection of the moment. As I type this brief post surrounded by packed bags and messy to-do lists, I know that we are about ...

      ... dive in off the bank. After the rafting we went to a local farm near La Fortuna for lunch. A demonstration was also provided of how they crush the sugar cane and we were forced to drink a shot of rocket fuel that they produce from it. You could run cars off the stuff i reckon. Peni and Cath gave us a lift back to the lodge where we said our goodbyes. They are heading back to San Jose tomorrow and fly on Tuesday. Have a nice dinner at the lodge with Ott's mum and ...

      ... air and overlooks the volcano but it is nowhere in sight as we are socked in by clouds and fog. Back to the room and we get prepared to go to the Arenal Observatory Lodge for a guided hike through the fain forest at the base of the volcano. I do not know what the story is but it is a 20 kilometer drive on really bad road. I didn't think that it could have gotten worse but now it is raining and the roads are wet and muddy ...
