The drive to the Arenal Region took about 2 1/2 hours. Don't let that discourage you after a long flight. The drive was magnificant. It was like a tour. We stopped at a Hummingbird sactuary and an authentic outdoor restaurant. The people there speak excellent english and couldnt be nicer. Let me just say the drive is so worth it! The view was absolutely breath taking, resort was extraordinary. There were hot springs heated from the volcano lava which were like small pools which would waterflow into another then another then another while temperatures drop one to the next. The food was outstanding. Wife says best Sushi she ever had. I've been to about 20 tropical places and this was top notch! Rainforest was beautiful. River raft tour was so peaceful and the wildlife was alive. Howling monkeys, slothes, alligators, tons of exotic birds, and butterflies. We went in August and the temperature was great with no bugs.
