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.

... but that was about it apart from a few common looking birds coming to check us out for a second or two.
Our walk took us back to the start just as the rain and thunder started. It was quite surreal to watch, the cloud thickened and began to move faster up the hill from the valley. The droplets of moisture in the air just seemed to grow bigger until they changed to raindrops and full on downpour. We were in the shelter at this point so ...

- Each bridge has a width of five feet, the widest bridges in Costa Rica, and also a capacity of up to 80 people per bridge making them both the longest and strongest bridge systems in the Monteverde Cloud Forest. -
... t realise because I had fallen asleep, and just presumed the driver would stop and tell us – but then I made the stupid error of presumption. Anyway this border town was a turdhole as you would expect, but in amongst the stares (yes you can stop staring now you know… nope your still staring!) we got a room sorted then set an alarm at 5am to get the hell out of there and to where we wanted to go in the first place.
Not that that was the end of the problems – we ...
