Hola Chicos! It's been a great few days - met up with friends, Siva and Rukman for hiking in the cloud forest, a great coffee tour, and finished up with some of the greatest zip lining in the country. We left Monteverde on our "jeep-boat-jeep" yesterday afternoon, which involved, as the name implies, some rough roads, before a ferry took us to the town of La Fortuna, which sits in the shadow of the famous Arenal volcano. ...

We have a bungalow which is like a cabin only very, very nice, with an open air patio that has a spectacular view of the volcano! I could spend the entire vacation on that patio!

... our meals here. Free coffee in the mornings. Loads of tour information available, and every tour is cheaper through Gringo Pete's, even cheaper than direct from the company.

What to do:
- Arenal National Park: The big volcano you can see from everywhere in town (when it's not covered in clouds!). Inside the Arenal National Park there are several hikes, almost all of which you can do solo, or pay between $25-50 (depending on number of sites etc) for a day of hiking with ...
