For many years, seeing an Arribada has been on my bucket list. I could never quite get the timing right. Rolf has been so very helpful and patiently responded to my many notes and emails. By chance, there was an extra arribada during a full moon and I was able to make the drive to Ostional to see the turtles. After seeing the turtles, we went to Luna Azul and had a wonderful meal. The food was delicious and the selection was excellent! The selection of wines was very good. The gardens and ambiance was wonderful. Rolf recognized me as soon as I walked in and was such a welcoming host. I got a personalized tour of the gardens as well. They made us feel at home. We went back down to the beach to see the peak arrival time between 8-9pm before driving back to Playa Junquillal. I can't wait to see a really large Arribada and have dinner at Luna Azul again.
