On our way back from Nicaragua ( a very confusing way back due to a bus mix-up and a rain storm) we decided to stop in Arenal before returning to San Jose. Arenal is the lush mountainous region in the north, famous for its volcano.
I'm so glad we made the decision to stop, Arenal was simply stunning.
After walking about forty minutes on foot in the rain, we made our way to a hostel and settled in.
I went on a hike through a rainforest canopy.
I went on a horseback trek through the mountains.
There were so many things to do, all of which were easily arranged at our hostel. Arenal is a major tourist stop in Costa Rica and there is no shortage of hostels and spur of the minute activities to partake in.
