Costa Rica – Monteverde and La Fortuna

Costa Rica – Monteverde

Crossing the border from Panama to San Jose, the capital of Costa Rica, we both caught a flu because the bus was so cold. I can’t complain actually if I think about all those chicken buses we have caught around in the bloody heat. We stayed just one day in San Jose, in fact, passing by to go to Monteverde, where we could experience the cloud forest and some adventures that just a jungle can provide.

In Monteverde we spent two nights and we went straight to radical things like: ziplines and walking on suspension bridges. I was speechless by the number (18) of ziplines, the sizes and heights. The highest one was at 170 meters and the longest has a bit more than a kilometer.

The last one you do with your partner or buddy, in my case, Aaron, and we just had so much fun crossing the whole cloud forest like 2 birds in the paradise.

Costa Rica – La Fortuna

Leaving a radical spot in Costa Rica to another one, we went straight to see in La Fortuna the famous Volcano Arenal. We walked in the forest and at sunset watched from afar lava flowing down the mountain. We also had the chance to go to a hot springs, actually, a water park but with natural thermal springs, with infra-structure where you can have a drink in the pool. Aaron can’t complain of sometimes being a regular tourist!

Well done with Costa Rica.

  1. Wow, what a great movie. I did not know that this way of travel is at all feasible. I thought zip-lines are only for amusement parks!
    This looks fantastic!!

  2. Hey! Great that you enjoy it! Keep checking the Blog. More adventures coming up! Monteverde is a capital of Costa Rica for adventures in the nature! Cheers, Vivi
