Exploring the Rio Frio

A travel blog entry by bob_and_lana


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 …

At the Foot of Arenal Volcano

A travel blog entry by bob_and_lana


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.

Rappelling or Abseiling down The Lost Canyon

... the river bed like a train one behind the other. One of the guides was at the top lying down across the water flow making a human dam. Then once we were all I place he would release the water and down it came!

En route to the white water rafting where we picked up some pineapple, we saw a sleeping sloth.


Days 40 - 42- volcanos and Hot Springs

... much else has changed. The first day we took a volcano tour, which takes you to the back of the volcano, so you can see both lake Arenal (a lake created after the 1968 eruption on the site of the villages destroyed and used for electricity) and the spot where the main parts of lava flow. We then took a hike through the rainforest which ended up at a waterfall. Here you could swim in the water (which we did) and even go behind the waterfall- which was slightly terrifying however ...

We switched hostels this morning from Sloth Backpacker to Pension Santa Elena, which is such a great hostel. Although it is large, like a hotel, there is a great common area with couches and tables.

    A Glitch That Gives and Show Character

    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.
