Their staff also had A LOT of fun with their "Towel Art", as seen below.
We had an excellent tour guide and around 12 others joining us on our tour.
We took a leisurly tour down the river with our guide from the volcano and our new friend Brigitte, a visitor from France. (boy was it funny when Rachel, French Canadian, found out Brigit was French - - the English went alway and the French started)
At the end of the trip they took us down the road to a small farm/ranch where we were served fried bananas, cheese, and a wonderful coconut cake.
The road from the lake down into Monteverde was interesting. A lot of up and down, single lane, rock/mud, etc. and at times it got pretty foggy. We had a good day though, some days they need a special four wheel drive vehicle to get you there.
We rode up, down and through the coffee fields..............
Okay time to put up or shut up............ after the first one they got a little less scarry ......
Left Monteverde at 11:00 a.m. and returned to Hotel 1492, arrived around 4:00 p.m. We were the only guests that night so we had a light super of cheese, salami, bagels, apples, and chips and had fun playing cards.
Left: Alan & Mac on the bus....
Below: Some of the views from the bus as we headed back down to the coast.
