1p Left at 8 am and stopped at a small elementary school to give gifts and visit with the children. Then stopped at a bridge where there were a lot of iguanas just walking around everywhere.. We just finished lunch at a restaurant in La Fortuna. I had chicken and shrimp fajitas for lunch, but I forgot to snap a before picture. it was really good. Got some pictures of Arenal volcano.
3pm Wow, our hotel is really luxurious. Cottages and great views. The place is called Mountain Paradise and they stayed here on The Bachelor (I bet in our suite because it has a great view of the volcano).
11p We swam and relaxed this afternoon in the pool with the swim up bar. All the pools are warm, almost hot tub heat, except for the hot tub, which is cold. Go figure. Dinner was down the hill at a very nice place and I had tilapia. It was very fancy but open air.
