After driving for about an hour and we stopped to change buses at this very strange place. The only way to explain it was it was like a rodeo on the side of the road, loads of cowboys and a man singing in a microphone all dressed up as a matador really festive .Then it was on our way again, another 2 hours passed and it was time to stop for lunch. The place where we stopped was amazing, they had toucans and iguanas and I think we are really lucky to see them as no one I have spoken to has seen one yet, then on the road again to La Fortuna. Our driver stopped in town at the tourism info point and they told us about some tours, I only had one night and so I booked the tour to the volcano plus the Baldi hot springs .I arrived at the hotel and wow I have an amazing room with views directly to the Volcano .I only had 5 minutes so dropped my bags and headed outside to be picked up for the tour (50$).
Well I was collected by a full bus and off we headed to the Volcano, we stopped at the viewing point and watched the sunset before heading towards the volcano.
The Arenal volcano is one of the most active volcano’s in the world and it erupts every 5-20 minutes .Well we were incredibly lucky and got a great view of the volcano as the clouds cleared, you have to be quite lucky as often you will not see the lava rocks die to the weather conditions .Then it was off to Baldi hot springs, well all I can say is heaven must be similar to this place, picture the perfect paradise and this is it. 21 Thermal baths all at different temperatures with waterfalls and beautiful tropical gardens and a swim up bar to top it off. I can not remember when I was last so relaxed .Then it was back to the hotel for a well deserved sleep , I can not believe what an amazing time I am having, I wouldn’t change it for the world.
