Hot spot for the adventurer

  13 votes
I was fortunate to make a trip to this area in 2002 and it is one of the most beautiful places I have seen. My trip was out of need of some sanity and to find a different place to ride. My familly had been going through some really tough growing pains.

Flying from a little town in the middle of the Colorado Rockies where white bread and cattle ranches abound I was in need of a break. After surfing around on the web I ran across a guy who had a waterski boat and a lake to ride near La Fortuna, CR. La Fortuna is a jumping off spot for a lot of travelers. Many great canopy tours abound. La Fortuna Waterfall and its waters were the coldest waters I was in at 70 degrees farenheit. Tabacon Resort is a must for those who like the hot springs. Although the price of admission is steep it is well worth the $$. I stayed at Tilajari Resort for ten days and wakeboarded at What a blast!!! From Ramons private ski lake in an orange orchard you can see Arenal Volcano erupting from the deck. The water temp was in the low 80's . The people are friendly but be careful of the ex-patriots trying to sell you land. Have fun and leave your worries behind.

Favourite spots:
Tilajari Resort Raftng the Rio Toro (on the web) Tabacon REsort La Fortuna Waterfalls

What's really great:
Warm weather, beautiful healthy people (locals and tourists), Great food, The surrounding countryside is unmatched in beauty. I was impressed with how many locals were excited to use their english skills and not put me down because I didn't speak spanish. They are willing to help you learn spanish as much as they want to learn english.

Arenal Lodge
Tabacon Resort
Tilajari Resort

We found an awesome Itallian restaurant in the middle of the jungle near La Fortuna. I cannot remember the name but you will know it when you eat there.

Carl, I am envious, as this is one of the trips that I would like to take in the near future. This is a nice start for writing reports. It would have helped if you would have added more detail and would have uploaded some photos. I would love to get as many photos of Volcan Arenal as I can get. Keep writing.
