Fascinating! With flashlights and a guide it was a secret world I could never have imagined seeing. He pointed out the tiniest of frogs and explained the ecology of the region. The excursion was very enlightening and utterly captivating.

It is a very green place with a constant mist. It is high as 1800 meters. There are close places to buy palmetto cheese, coffee, sweets and take a break. Hotel Villa Blanca is near to this place. The place is on the route to the Arenal Volcano in La Fortuna de San Carlos.

One of the highlights of our visit. Great to see how the clouds roll in and out. Some clear patches and then the clouds. Very unusual.

We had difficulty finding this location, in part because we did not realize it was affiliated with the Villa Blanca hotel property. This is located about 11 km off... More
