Alajuela to La Fortuna (Day 2)

Day 2 of our trip started at Alajuela (San Jose Airport) from there we travelled by bus to La Fortuna. Our hotel was outside of the city on a large piece of land which had previously been a macadamia farm.


Half way between Alajuela and La Fortuna. This was the view from a washroom/food break.

 

Our first really good view of the Arenal Volca. We were told that only 2% of visitors get to see the Volcano (it's usually covered by clouds), but we saw it at some point every day. Either we were very lucky or they were feeding us a line.

 

The view from our hotel room.

 

On the right are the Challets, they must have had amazing views. I'm glad we didn't stay in them because they were a bit far away from the main building of the hotel.

 

Everyday between 3 and 4 it would get foggy and then start to rain a short time after that. This photo was taken maybe 2 hours after the sunny ones above.

 

In the bottom of the photo you can see a red eyed tree frog.
