We had a wonderful few days here with our two kids aged 10 and 14. We enjoyed just hanging out at our cabin (Toucan), watching the birds and the sloth outside the door. The horses were the best we've ever ridden and we had a very exciting ride through the countryside to an idyllic waterfall. The weather was a little cloudy but we still managed to see the tip of Arenal a few times. Breakfast was always entertaining with a big flock of parakeets coming to the feeders, plus the tame parrot. All in all a really great stay.

The bus trip to Monteverde and Santa Elena provided some incredible scenery during the ascend; lush, deep green fields and valleys. First we had to get there. The bus from Liberia dropped us at an intersection on the highway, where we were to transfer to another bus taking the less common, and much less user-friendly road. 2 buses a day pass here to tackle the 2 hour, 33km ...
... in and were off upstream. The boat was manned by a father/son team. The son was in the back running the motor and the father stood solidly in front, eyes alert to the river ahead. He held a long wooden rod, about 8 feet, which he would use to steer us away from rocks and navigate over small rapids. He directed his son with subtle, practiced flicks of his wrists one way or another. The ride was absolutely stunning. We made a sharp turn right at ...

After a quick change of shoes, we headed down to el Castillo village and visited the local Eco-zoo. It was a centre for snakes and other amphibians, reptiles, insects and butterflies mainly from Costa Rica but from other parts of the world too. We had a guided tour by a young passionate guy called Jose who was knowledgable about all the animals. It was very interesting and we got to see the poisonous ...
