    The formidable Cerro Chato

    A travel blog entry by saroni on Apr 09, 2015

    ... the volcano went dormant and collapsed. There are 6 other people in our group; 3 Italian women, a couple from Canada and a solo traveler from Canada. We start the hike by walking through a vertical cow pasture dodging cow patties along the way. Our guide tells us to use our walking stick if the cows approach us. Apparently they sometimes confuse hikers as an additional source to get food from. They just stare at us with their big black eyes. ...

    ... there were many more spider monkeys and some capuchin monkeys. And last but not least, a beautiful ocelot.

    Be thankful that I'm writing this almost two months later, because those last two paragraphs probably would have been at least ten if I could remember more of what we learned.

    On the walk back from the tour, we crossed a bridge over a small stream and we got a great look at a bird that wasn't in a cage - a boat-billed heron. We'd seen one briefly while ...

    ... after quad biking they caught a tour up to Arenal volcano for a nature walk, and got to see spider monkeys hanging out in the trees. Costa Ricans are really proud of the nature they have and do their best to preserve what's here. We walked down to a waterfall, which looked pretty, well pretty damn cold. Ian was in, in seconds, Sarah and Naomi preferring to hang back and save their first water bound experience for the hot springs. Wow! Like sitting in a ...

    Last couple of walks.... Ouch!

    ... nothing. I saw the whole volcano in Arenal but we were at the resort for a whole day and had the time to see it. Up in the clouds, the weather is highly unpredictable so my verdict is that those tours aren't worth it unless the weather for the day is clear and sunny. I'm here at the height of the rainy season. Off to a delicious lunch at a restaurants after checking out Lankaster Gardens... Nice little place to wander through but I prefer seeing this in the wild. ...

    ... swim. On the way back up to the entrance we saw a chestnut-mandibled toucan, the biggest toucan in Costa Rica.

    Leonel happened to be waiting in his taxi as we came out the park, so we hopped in and he took us to the Hot Springs. We had previously decided to go to Tabacon even though it was the most expensive one. It seemed to be the most authentic and least 'manufactured'. Leonel didn't think we should go there though ...
