A Visit to Costa Rica!

In November 2012 I was fortunate to spend a few days in Costa Rica. Unfortunately though I came down with a virus on the journey there and the 2 days I had set aside for seeing San José were spent in bed recuperating. Once I was on the mend though, I set off by shared mini-bus to La Fortuna, to visit the place in Costa Rica I most wanted to see – Arenal Volcano. There are a number of eco/nature lodges in the area, which is also something that appeals to me. I chose the Hotel Kokoro, which turned out to be an excellent choice. I stayed for 3 nights enjoying glimpses of the massive volcano through the clouds, soaking in their volcanic hotsprings, going on nature walks, and just relaxing.
Look carefully, you can just make out Arenal Volcano
