We had decided to head towards the Arenal Volcano for the first leg of our trip. Arenal is an active volcano that is known for its lava flows that are especially beautiful at night with the red and orange glows. Because of the high volcanic activity, the area is also known for hot springs or termales. We planned to try out the hot springs tonite.
There are two recommended routes to get there, one being a bit east of the other and more indirect and remote, we chose that one.
The traffic disappeared and we climbed and climbed.

The road turned to dirt for awhile and at one point a lot of construction where a landslide had washed out the road

This section was very remote and we didn't see another car for many miles

Crossed many streams and saw lots of this




One of the bridges...you gotta pay attention





yah, we had to stop and stage a picture

This was a more typical bridge...crossed many of these over the next few days.

We had lunch at this place...We tried to eat at "sodas" local restaurants or cafe's




Contrary to the general consensus, I thought the food in Costa was great. Simple but tasty. And of course...the universal drink.
