I got up early and got picked up for the rafting at 08.30, the majority of the group had opted for this option. After picking up many other intrepid adventurers we finally headed off to the river, arriving we were given our life jackets, helmets and paddle. We then split into to groups for the rafts; as there were 8 of us we split into two groups of 4, Martin, Dave and Naomi with me, to make up the numbers we were also joined by Toby from Canada. Agnethe, Anna, Eliza and Hariette were to be in a raft on there own.
Walking down to the river, we met with our guides and got into the rafts. What followed was a fantastic few hours of thrills and spills... Martin was ejected out of the boat twice, the first time he had to ride two of the rapids out the boat, he was certainly glad to be finally pulled back into the raft.
We got changed out of our wet clothes and went for our included lunch time, which considering was very good. Come 15.00 we were back in La Fortuna and planning our celebrations to last year out, starting with a trip to the supermarket to buy some drinks.
We got to the club somewhat early, so there were very few people in there, drinking the free beer we were handed when we walked in we sat by the side of the dance floor and wondered what we'd let ourselves in for. The club started filling up and the drinks were flowing, onto the dance floor we went and the party truelly began.
Midnight came, and we all danced and hugged, an hour and a half later and I was knackered, it had been a good if not different evening, so i headed out and got a taxi back to the hotel and hit the sack. Looking forward to the hot springs the next evening.
