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.

Our guide Freddy collected us from the hostel shortly after dawn and drove us along with a Dutch couple back out of town on the road we had taken the day before.

Once out of the jeep Freddy rummaged in the boot and produced a pair of binoculars for each of us and a higher intensity telescope for us to share. We ...
... The force of the current is strong enough that it is impossible to get close to the point of impact. We manage to get some not so candid shots in before we explore a little more and then head back up the steps to the top. At this point we have acquired a k-9 friend. We have dinner at the resort, which is expensive but delicious. Whoever told Jamie Costa Rica is cheap was a liar! We haven't found one cheap thing. However, the beautiful flora and fauna makes it worth the expense.
... in between. One was pretty hot, and the other was ice cold. It reminded me of a place my mom and dad used to vacation at on Lake Superior. It had a sauna right next to the bitter cold lake. And they would sit in the sauna until it was too hot to handle, then plunge into the icy lake water, and keep alternating until their bodies were completely and utterly relaxed. So we tried the same thing with the hot and cold pools.
We started off in the hot pool, and boy was it ...
... she is). The bus from 100% Aventuras picked us up at 10:30 and drove us the short distance to their zip lines. We were in a group of about 30 people and the first step was to get kitted out with all of our harness gear. The guy at Pension Santa Elena had described this particular canopy tour as high adrenaline so I was understandably nervous. After being trussed up like a show pony we had our instructions and ...
