    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.

    ... The second option was a form of bungee jumping, but with a stiff rope and a braking system rather than a large rubber band. I knew there was no way that Caroline or Catherine were crazy enough to do it, but I had to try it out. While initially hesitant, Sam Jackson surprised all of us and decided to try the freefall as well. I still can't believe he did it. It was definitely the most exhilarating thing we've done all year - or in his case, ever. Once the braking ...

    ... a deal. Kaileigh, Hannah, and I spent some time walking around Arenal (in the pouring rain) in search for a panadaría (bakery), but were without luck. No worries though because we then went to another super nice restaurant and had another wonderful dinner. And tres leches cake again! Seriously so good! I'm now back at the hotel and tomorrow is going to be a pretty lax day. Were going to see waterfalls and then the hot springs! Buenos ...

    The Search for the treasured toucan

    ... But in the shadow of the cloud covered volcano, there is still no sighting of the elusive toucan.

    With full bellies (from a buffet) our heroes head back through town dejected, but cleansed and relaxed. Walking past the Lava Lounge, they hear a noise in the tree, sceptical that it is anything but a sea-bird due to it’s sound, Tim gives it a vague glance before stopping dead in his tracks. Although it is high in the tree, the bird has that ...
