I think I have our accommodation decided and then I started thinking about the Observation Lodge. I know it is further from town...and thats ok but we do like to eat out for dinner. Is the trip to restaurants that bad? We will have a car. I love the idea of all the natural things the Observation loge offers but do not want to be too isolated from other things. Other than exploring the volcano we will be doing SkyTrex, and a rafting trip.
My other option is arenal manoa. Pros/cons???
