arenal volcano inn
From Manuel Antonio, we took an Interbus shuttle (you book in advance.. sooo much better than public transport) to La fortuna where we stayed at Arenal Volcano Inn. like all the hotels in that area, you have a great view of the amazing Arenal Volcano. no more ants in the bed :) although there were some fascinating bugs in the room, including a cute spider which i almost killed but granted mercy to at the last minute because he looked so scared :(. so the first full day there we went on these amazing ziplines (Sky Adventure). not all ziplines are created equal, some are pretty slow and short, and kinda lame, well this one was absolutely fantastic. words cannot describe. there were about 9 lines? total and the 2 biggest and fastest ones were INCREDIBLE... flying through the air at 60 mph from high up in the mountains overlooking the jungle and the Arenal volcano, i loved it. the next day we went white water rafting on the rio toro (category 4 rapids) - this was probably the most fun out of any adventure activities ive ever done. i can't wait to go again! the next day after that we did a waterfall repelling excursion with desafio adventure co.- this was pretty cool and lovely scenery, you repel down some pretty high waterfalls, but it didnt have the excitement factor like white water rafting or the ziplines. it was overpriced too.
