      MONTEVERDE activies

      Monteverde Apr 5, 2015 at 5:18 PM

      We will be in the Monteverde area for 2.5 days in May and want to do these activities: zip line/canopy tour, see the cloud forest and walk the hanging bridges. Can that all be done at Selvatora Park or should we do each thing independently at different locations? I don't mind going to three different places to have the best experience. So.... which is the best canopy tour? Which are the best hanging bridges (I am assuming there is more than one place in the area to do this). Is there something else that we should do in this area (no frog or snake tours)? Thanks in advance.

    • Should I go back to see someone I knew for only a week?

      Costa Rica Apr 5, 2015 at 7:49 PM

      Hi all,

      I've been struggling a little (mostly due to family concerns) with a travel decision..

      I recently took a trip to Guanacaste, Costa Rica and stayed at a resort where I met a lot of awesome people. One of the people I met was an entertainer and professional dancer that works at the resort and we hit it off instantly. Throughout my stay, we had a lot of time to talk and interact and really liked each other.

      Ever since I arrived back in the US, Maine to be exact, we've been in touch daily via messenger and video calls and have grown to like one another even more.. I have a break between school (finishing a degree at 38 years old) and work and decided to book a flight to go down and see him for a week. The other reasons I want to go is to work on my Spanish and to see more of Costa Rica, because I stayed mostly at the resort.

      I consider myself a good judge of character and he seems to be a genuinely good person who I feel I can trust. My family feels otherwise.. They think that it is unsafe to go down by myself and to see someone I've known for such a short time. Like I said, I am 38 and also a pretty independent and street smart gal.

      Can anyone give me some advice about this? Am I jumping the gun or being naive? I'm aware the belief that some people want to marry US citizens to get into the country to work.. I'm also very confident in my ability to see if that were the primary motive.. I've even rebutted that comment with, what if I wanted to marry into Costa Rica!?

      Anyway, I just really loved it there and New England winters/springs are cold and gray and I really do like this person.

      What do you guys think? Ps. I'm well-traveled within the US, but this was my first time outside, with the exception of Canada.

      Thank you!

      Tenemos que viajar del Castillo a los Chiles en barca y de allí a Fortuna en bus, pero las opciones que encuentro desde los Chiles hasta Fortuna hacen hasta seis transbordos y tardan una eternidad. Hay alguna opción que conozcais?

      Are there any self-service laundries in Fortuna? If a hotel does your laundry what is a typical cost (I'll be at Lomas del Volcan)?

    • How to get around la Fortuna without a car?

      by ray_fb Online Now Jan 15, 2007 at 9:10 PM

      We (party of 3) don't plan to rent a car. What is the best way to go around, say, from the town of la Fortuna to Arenal Volcano National Park and the various hot springs? Is there buses or taxis?

    • hotel recommendations

      by kevin-fortuna Online Now Dec 28, 2005 at 6:08 AM

      It's been a long time since I've visited La Fortuna. Obviously I have a bias for the place (my name is Kevin Fortuna), and I've been meaning to get back there. Can anyone recommend a decent hotel that is nice, clean, but not too expensive? Thanks!
