Arenal Volcano, Costa Rica: The grounds at the Montagna De Fuego Hotel.
Upon waking up at the Hotel we found that it was in a beautiful spot.  We were going on an early tour though so we had to have an early breakfast and then head out for our tour of Cano Negro.   Cano Negro is up near the Nicaraguan border and is a river tour on a boat to see wildlife.  I was a little scheptical about going on this part of the tour but it was probably the best part of the trip to La Fortuna.  We got on a big tour boat and went down the river and saw caiman, lizards, some monkeys,  a sloth and a lot of interesting birds.  Interesting day on the river.  The tour took about 3 hours.  From there we went back to Tobaccan Hot Springs Resort for some more soaking in the Hot Springs and another dinner and from there we rejoined a tour group day tripping from San Jose for the bus trip back to San Jose.  On the trip home the bus got a flat tire and we had to help the bus driver repair it.  He had no flashlight so I had to help him with mine.  Soon after that another bus came behind us and helped us repair it too.  An interesting ride home as our bus was spewing a lot of smoke.  We get back to San Jose Late and I spend the night at the Hotel Castillo.
