Arrivée en sol Costa Ricain!

Nous sommes arrivés hier soir, vers 21h00 à l'aéroport de San Jose, après un peu plus de 8 heures de vol. Les vols se sont bien déroulés malgré la bipolarité de Édouard... Bonheur et pleurs intenses étaient au rendez-vous! Édouard, lui, ça ne fait pas son affaire que l'on ne puisse pas …

What does sky tram and trek mean to you?

... down. Imagine our shock when we arrived to see people queing for harnesses. Upon further investigation it turns out a trek means ZIP LINE! Oh dear, it was going to be a now or never moment!

Sometimes not knowing is a good thing and once up in the rainforest via the ariel tram (got that bit right) we were then told that we would be zip lining down 8 wires some 656 ...

... guy who trained them can even stand in between their two back legs! They are clearly well looked after and well disciplined! After an hour and a half (including some galloping) we stopped for a beer....Dougie jumped off his horse and the whole inside of his trousers ripped, we could barely stand with the laughter! We had a beer and hummingbirds were all around us- very pretty! On jumping back on the horse ...

Majestic Volcan Arenal

The original plan was to spend around 3 night in La Fortuna enjoying the views of the Majestic Volcano Arenal and the possible excursions around it but our now turned-travel-guide-hostel-owner of Santa Elena told us there wasn't that many exciting things to do in La Fortuna. So we listened to his suggestions and went along with it. The plan was now to leave for La Fortuna early in the morning, arriving in the afternoon, just in time to catch ...

Life on the Green Mountain- Monteverde, Costa Rica

... house, the girls completed their first week of school, and we have had some time to explore the area. Our house is just outside of Santa Elena, a busier, more touristy part of Monteverde, but also with most of the shopping and restaurant options. The front of our house sits on a very busy road, but we have a nice sunny backyard and terrace with views up into the hills and a horse pasture, and trees that attract wonderful birds. It ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Volcano Lodge & Springs La Fortuna

    Highly recommeded!

    from

    Started our CR vacation with three nights here and what an introduction! The grounds were beautiful and the units laid out very nicely. The rooms were spotless and spacious and the covered porch area kept things quite nice even when it was rainy. Excellent views of Arenal when the clouds permitted it.

    Perfect Volcano Views

    from

    My husband and I stayed at Volcano Lodge for an overnight trip and loved it! We checked in after dark and woke up to splendid views of Arenal the next morning! Our tidy front porch was steps away from gorgeous plants and flowers buzzing with hummingbirds. The included breakfast buffet satisfied us for a busy day of tours. Would definitely stay there again.

    Great Hotel

    from

    My wife and I stayed at the Volcano Lodge for two nights and enjoyed every minute. The room was spacious, clean, and the staff was very helpful. The views from each room cannot be beat as we watched Arenal Volcano and its activity during the day and night. The breakfast buffet (included) was also very tasty and fresh. From omelets to fried plaintains to black beans and rice, we never left the table hungry. A great stay and we would come again.

    Beautiful!

    from

    We were a couple of high school buddies without our families (husbands and kids) without us. We had spent 5 days in the Guanacaste area and came to Arenal to finish up our Costa Rica visit. We spent two nights at the Volcano Lodge and we were also very happy here. While the rooms are not huge, nor resort-style luxurious, they were big enough, spotlessly clean, and by no means shabby. We had perfect views of Arenal Volcano (it looked like all rooms had similarly fantastic views). Rooms have a small outdoor patio with rocking chairs where you can sit, listen to the river below, and watch the volcano (or not, depending on the clouds!) and exotic birds (flocks of parakeets and parrots). The breakfast buffet at the new restaurant was vey nice. They have a new pool and jacuzzi. The desk is helpful with booking excursions.

    Top-notch arenal area hotel

    from

    We spent 2 nights at this hotel and were very pleased with the experience. The hotel has a resort feel to it; the rooms are spread out in clusters of one-story buildings, so that golf cart service is provided to carry luggage to the rooms. The property feels quite new and the extensive grounds are beautiful and well maintained with a profusion of exotic flowers. Rooms are very spacious and come with AC and cable TV. The Lodge is one of the closest to the Arenal Volcano itself and an excellent view is available from every room. There is a very good pool, but a much larger one was being built, together with a clubhouse. The open air restaurant serves good quality food. All and all, a wonderful experience.

    Loved the new place

    from

    This was a second trip for us. We were showing my parents what

    a wonderful country Costa Rica is. We tried to get a room at Tabacon

    but they were sold out. Which was our great fortune. The only problem

    we did not have a car. We were put in the newest section which is too

    far to walk for an elderly couple. The staff was very helpful in rearranging

    our rooms. The rocking chairs on the patio are wonderful for watching the

    volcano. Great view. Front desk staff very helpful in arranging taxis,

    tours and transportation back to airport.

    A wonderful surprise

    from

    This is a wonderful resort, with very spacious rooms, with all conveniences, very well kept grounds, and of course the view of Arenal Volcano! The staff was very helpful and spoke excellent English. The restaurant is pleasant and the food was plentiful and quite good. La Fortuna is only a few kms away, and certainly worth a visit.

    Volcano Lodge stay

    from

    Just returned from a 2-night stay at Volcano Lodge. The lodge is fairly new, which is reflected in the quality of the rooms. The shower was huge and the water pressure great, and the AC and satellite TV were nice touches. Each room has a private patio looking out at the volcano, and we spent a whole afternoon watching ash and rocks spew from the top. The lodge restaurant is really very good, though if you're a budget traveler, I wouldn't recommend it. While not cheap, the food was excellent - better than most meals we've had at home. We had gotten engaged the day before at Tortuguero, and celebrated with a dinner at Volcano Lodge - $100 USD included a bottle of wine, bottle of water, salads, appetizers, main dishes and desserts, plus all taxes, service charges, and an extra trip. Comparable to a great meal at home, and worth every dollar. The staff at the lodge are helpful, though the laundry service was a little odd. We had dropped off clothing at 7:30 a.m. and were told they would be ready by 7:30 p.m. the same day, but late into the evening, nothing had arrived. A call to the front desk let us know our clothing would be ready the next day, but after we explained that we were checking out at 7 a.m. the next morning, the clothing appeared within a half hour. So that was a bit strange.
