Arenal is the one area that every guide and tour operator in Costa Rica seems to sell to the tourists – a must go place.
We had heard rumours about high winds (wrong time of year). Instead we entered a world of jungle, a beautiful lake at the foot of a volcano, and a funny town filled with “things to do” ranging from lying in thermal hot water, to hiking and biking. We opted for zipline and horseback. It was horribly expensive but fully worth the price as we zipped on lines 100m above ground and up to 1km long across waterfalls and right through the jungle.
If you have money left over, you have plenty of options here. We instead opted to head away from the tourists, to the Caribbean side, down towards Panama. On the road again…
