First impressions as you arrive are of a gate house, a guard and an entry barrier. Then you have to wear these wrist bands. If you're the anxious type, that feels like a lot of security, and of course they don't tell you why. Although when we were there, a large group of American schoolkids might have put everyone on high alert. Dunno.
There is a lot to like about Volcano Lodge, much of it already mentioned. My only real criticism, again mentioned elsewhere, is that the walls between rooms really are seriously paper thin. We had a family next to us, with a child that cried during the night. Alas, every word and sulky whimper could be heard. Very poor sleep as a result.
Must single out Bryan at the check-in desk. A real asset, who provides one of the most affable welcomes in Costa Rica. Thanks a lot.
