We recently went with friends to the National Theater in San Jose, Costa Rica. We heard a renouned jazz band, Rumba Jam on their tenth anniversary tour. We all seemed to enjoy the concert and we had a nice lunch on the way back to Atenas, where we live.
Hiking for 5 hours on a trail all by ourselves to finally make it to this lake in a crater next to one of the biggest volcanos in Costa Rica 🙌🏻 [not pictured: us swimming in that amazing lake sin ropa] #cantfeelmylegs#cerrochato#arenalvolcano#lafortuna
27 hours later, we made it. After a long wait at the tunnel, a delayed flight, a 5 hour flight, and a 3 hour bus ride to the hotel, the waiting was worth it. Can't wait to explore this beautiful country. Also, we have the beautiful sounds of the rainforest to sleep to. How fricken amazing.
O Vulcão Arenal está no distrito de La Fortuna, e é um dos poucos vulcões ativo da Costa Rica. A última atividade registrada foi no ano de 2010. No seu entorno foi criado um parque nacional para preservação da fauna e flora (também é possível desfrutar das piscinas termais). Perguntei a um costarricense se não dava medo viver perto de um vulcão, ele me disse que mais perigoso é viver na cidade.

I had a jar full of coins that I had collected in my travels and when we moved from Southern California, I gave them to a granddaughter. I'll have to find out what she did with them and did she find any that were interesting or valuable...
El Chollin is known as the "free hot springs" located 11 km from the La Fortuna downtown, in front of the Tabacon thermal resort.
This warm river flows from the Tabacon river, the best time to enjoy the springs is when the sun goes down.
This is a budget friendly way to enjoy the hot springs as you can find many paid resorts.
La gente pensa che il destino sia segnato. Che il tuo ruolo nel mondo sia già scritto e che tu debba rassegnarti a vivere la vita che ti è toccata. Così molti stanno fermi, non si muovono, accettano quello che accade e aspettano. Ecco, no grazie. Io so che posso far succedere le cose. So che ci devo provare con tutte le mie forze. Se poi non ci riesco, almeno so di averci provato. E se poi capita una botta di fortuna, è solo perché ha incontrato la mia capatosta.
Our last night in Costa Rica we stayed at Selina Hostel. There is such a cool vibe at this place and we wish we could have stayed longer. Would definitely recommend if you are looking for a budget friendly place to stay in La Fortuna! http://liketk.it/2DUPI #firstname.lastname@example.org

Costa Rica vibes 🌿
Here are some of our recommendations for La Fortuna:
✦ We stayed at Arenal Kioro Suites & Spa and highly recommend! Each room offers some of the best views of the Arenal Volcano. If you are looking for more of a budget-friendly place, Selina hostel is a great option.
✦ We bought day passes for both The Springs Resort and Tabacón. Both of their hot springs were amazing and a perfect way to spend the day.
✦ La Fortuna waterfall is a must! Get there right as it opens at 7 am to enjoy the place all to yourself!
✦Grab coffee at Red Frog which is on the edge of town. The people that run the place are so friendly and the coffee and breakfast were amazing.
✦A few restaurant recommendations in town are Lava Lounge and Don Rufino. If you want to eat some great local food, look for the restaurants that have “soda” in their name.
✦We were underwhelmed with the Hanging Bridges park. If you don’t have a ton of time we suggest skipping it. If you do go, try to get a reservation for early in the morning.

Did you know?
The sound of a hawk's whistle or scream makes the iguana freeze and it becomes easier to capture.
I didn’t expect to swim with wild iguanas in Tabacon. This river is through the @tabaconresort which was a must-do experience.
Cheers to the weekend 🍷
We absolutely loved staying at Arenal Kioro Suites. Waking up to this view was definitely a highlight of our trip! Located at the center of Arenal Volcano National Park, Arenal volcano measures at least 1,633 meters high. It is the 3rd most perfect conical shaped volcano in the world and one of the top ten most active volcanoes in the world!

Travel changes you, but in all the good ways. It leaves you always craving more, an addiction that can never quite be met. Every place, every trip, every person is a new adventure; pulling you deeper into the love wanderlust ✨
