We have definitely picked up the pace on our trip! After 4 hours on curvy roads we arrived in La Fortuna! We chose our hotel and made our way to the center of town. The primary feature of La Fortuna is the Arenal Volcano. When I came to CR eight years ago, the visibility did not allow us to see the massive volcano. This was our lucky day...the volcano was in clear sight! Currently, lava is not flowing from the volcano and it is unclear when, if at all, the volcano will continue to flow lava. Apparently, a volcano is active for only about 40 years.

On today´s agenda: Baldi Hot Springs Resort. A time to relax....

Coming up next: Horseback riding along two waterfalls in the morning. In the afternoon we will make our way to Monteverde by jeep and boat.

Pura Vida!!
