Monday 21st July

Spent the morning shopping and bought some earrings for Steph and a pura vida board. Had lunch with some of the guys from the school then me and Lara got the bus to La Fortuna at 2pm. Very long and bumpy journey but met a nice couple from San Diego on their honeymoon. Loudmouth Tico (Julio) got on the bus and somehow sold us some excursions. We went to see lava falling down the side of Volcan Arenal at night which was pretty cool. We were quite far away but it was still pretty amazing.

Then we went to some hot springs to swim, but we didn't swim because it was pitch black and there were some very dodgy teenagers looking like they were waiting to steal our bags. The hostel was nice (Arenal Backpackers). It had a swimming pool, but it didn't look so clean.
