Maria's guidance has been invaluable. Not only does she lead us through confusing city strets and unmarked turns, she also gives us advance warning of road hazards, like "Puenta Angosto Adelante." I don't know the Spanish, but the basic meaning is "slow down -- the bridge ahead is one lane only !"
Our journey from Alajuela (San Jose airport) to Arenal took us through at least 4 climate zones -- many of them more than once.
Jody tells me these pictures show brilliant colors in the trees ...
Our lunch stop was in Zarcero -- a cute town known for topiaries in its town square / park -- fun !
Arrival in La Fortuna late afternoon -- nice eco-lodge in lovely surroundings. Birds flitting about, noisy frogs at night -- sweet dreams ! The volcan is shy, as usual, hiding behind clouds.
