Our boat awaits
We left Monteverde and headed to La Fortune/Arenal around 8:00AM.  It was going to be a 4 hour travel day on both bus and boat.  We drove through the winding roads to Lake Arenal, where we took a boat across the lake.  Then it was a short drive to reach our hotel.  After we checked into our hotel, we headed over to the tour office to check out the activities.  We all choose to do a fully day of white water rafting and hot springs pizza party the next day. 

We had lunch at the local soda that our tour guide recommended.  I ordered the fish casado, which came with a fried fish, rice, beans, plantains, mashed potatos, and salad. It was a tipical dish and very filling.  After lunch, I headed back to the hotel room and took a long overdue nap.

We all met up for dinner at the restaurant right next to the hotel.  After dinner, we headed back to the hotel to pre-party before we headed to the second largest club in Costa Rica.  We caught the 7 minute party bus that picks you up at the town square and drops you off at the club.  There was a good crowd of people at the club with some good music playing.  They played some reggae, salsa, and a Micheal Jackson tribute medley.  We didn't stay too late, since we were white water rafting the next day.
