TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Kokoro Arenal La Fortuna
Hotel is in a beautiful setting with hot springs that are delightful for soaking. The staff are very kind and helpful. We went to dinner last evening in their open-air restaurant, but there was a glitch: the chief and the one waitress had not shown up for work as scheduled. No problem, the front desk staff person took care of us and we had a wonderful sea bass for dinner. The chef finally arrived; it was a communications problem she said. The waitress never did show. Despite these glitches, which we chalk up to being part of the Costa Rican experience, we had a delightful evening and stay at the hotel.

Welcome back! I want to give you my first impressions of Costa Rica!
After a three hour drive from San Jose airport we arrived in Arenal which is famous for the large Volcano. We stayed three nights in this beautiful green area. Our accommodation is a simple cabin but the grounds are beautiful and the staff very friendly! We have blue, red …
... the cages, to spread birdseed and banana slices along their feeding trays. That was very weird to actually be inside the cage, with the birds flying all around us.
We finished the feedings with the rest of the monkeys, letting them take the fruit from our hands again. And then the coatis. For them we could only push the fruit through the small holes in the cage, and wait for them to take it. They were super-cute.
And that was the end of our tour. It was ...
... t have a map and we weren't sure exactly where to go. So we backtracked towards the butterfly reserve and walked back up and down the hills we just trekked. Finally reach the butterfly reserve, when they tell us the hummingbird place is the way we just came from except towards the cloud reserve. Man, give us a break...so obviously, after about 8-9km of walking hills, we are pretty stuffed and ready for lunch. So stop into the supermarket, stock up on ...
... The others went off canyoning and then me and sasha got picked up for our volcano walk. There was a few other people on the tour and the guide was well good. He was probably a few years older than me but just his enthusiasm was inspiring as he was so passionate about what he was talking about, just what you want. It had started raining but that really fine wet rain so wasn't too bad. The clouds had lowered so the view wasn't that great ...
... you know coffee beans are actually inside of these red berries? And the actual coffee bean only accounts for 20% of the total berry? And they are not brown. The brownness happens when they are roasted. Not only did we learn about coffee, but also cocoa and sugar cane. *DO NOT EAT STRAIGHT UP COCOA BEANS* It's like eating a spoon full of unsweetened cocoa powder but solid form. However, the sugar cane juice was delicious! Our tour guide, Junior, was ...
