The main event today was a cruise on the Rio Frio where we scoured the riverbank for more sightings of wildlife. After an early breakfast we loaded up in our mini-van and set out for an hour-and-a-half ride towards the Nicaraguan border to the town of Los Chilies. There we boarded our boat for the morning and set out to explore the banks of the Rio …
Our major activity today was a visit to an organic farm owned and operated by retired high school principal Don Juan Bautista. The farm sits literally at the foot of Arenal Volcano, one of the most active in the country. After our tour we enjoyed a delicious lunch composed mainly of products raised on the farm.

... vi en liten fruktpaus vid ett vattenfall, och sa fortsatte vi ner en timme till med klass 3 forsar. De forsarna var som en sondagspromenad jamfort med den forsta biten, vi satt och smapratade medan vi slentrianpaddlade.

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.
