Costa Rica: Alajuela – Volcan Arenal

Located 15 kilometres from Fortuna between the foothills of the Cordillera de Tilaran mountain range and the San Carlos plains, Arenal Volcano National Park covers 12,124-hectare and is one of the most visited destinations in the Northern Zone. We decided to take a trail on a private reserve, known as Arenal 1968, which offers impressive views of Arenal Volcano and lava fields. This park got its name from the Arenal Volcano eruption of 1968 which was one of the most important and crucial events in Costa Rica’s history.

Villas Del Caribe - Puerto Viejo De Talamanca, Costa Rica

Costa Rica: Puerto Viejo de Talamanca – Villas del Caribe (Review)

Villas del Caribe is a hotel at the south end of Puerto Viejo de Talamanca on Costa Rica's Caribbean coast, near the border with Panama. The property is made up of 2 storey buildings that have rooms that look out across beautifully landscaped gardens to the sea. Our room was spacious and comfortable. It included a big kitchen area that was reasonably well equipped and a dining table. Outside we had an enormous patio. Onsite was the Spicy Coconut restaurant - which was amazing and had several options for vegans!

Costa Rica: Parque Nacional de Irazú

Located in Central Costa Rica, Irazú is an active volcano. Its maximum elevation is 11260 feet (3432 m) above sea level making it the highest volcano in Costa Rica.

The National Park is very accessible, and it is a beautiful drive . The weather can be changeable, so be prepared for a bit of everything.
