Active Volcanos  (1 Answer)

Arriving in La Fortuna next week for three days and was wondering which volcanoes are active presently? I heard that Arenal is only spewing steam presently.
Also the free hot springs at Tabacon are they worth going to.
Thanks for your relies
Jack

Hot Springs  (3 Answers)

Upon entering the Arenal National Park, are there hot springs within the park we can check out ourselves, or is the only access to them through the resorts, like Tabacon or Baldi?

Red Lava Tours  (2 Answers)

Does anyone have any info/opinion/experience with the Red Lava Tours?

I googled it, and the results were some postings on other websites about it being a tour reseller with credit fraud, not having a valid website, and having legal issues from using another company's trademark.

My friend booked us on a daytrip through one of the major hostel websites (hostelworld.com)a while back, and I just realized it's associated with this Red Lava Tour. We picked it because the tour is 6 hours long and supposedly ends at Tabacon river.

Have we been duped??!!

Arenal Observatory Lodge  (4 Answers)

Hi
My husband and I are going to be travelling to CR end of Jan08. For the Areanal area we choose the 'Arenal Observatory Lodge' as our base! Can anyone, who has recently stayed there, let me know what they thought of it. Also, is it very out of the way and far from the surrounding 'towns' and things to do? We were thinking of staying at the Tobacon, but I thought that's a bit too 'Manicured' to choose as a place to stay in CR.
I will welcome any comments.
Thanks,
J

How bumpy a ride from San Jose to Arenal area?  (5 Answers)

Hello,
I am planning a trip down to the Arenal Volcano area for November, and I understand the ride from the airport is a 3 hour drive.
What I'm more concerned about is the safety of the drive.
Does the route out to the Arenal/ La Fortuana area involve alot of steep roads, with no barriers and sharp turns...that sort of thing.
I like to think I'm a pretty intrepid traveler, but I do get uncomfortable driving in treacherous conditions...
I know the roads down there aren't great...but would anyone call them...hazardous? Please be honest...
Any thoughts from those who have gone that way...
Thanks,
Amy

shuttle from Liberia to Arenal area  (1 Answer)

I am arriving in Costa Rica at Liberia Airport on 11/6 and will be staying the first 2 nights near Arenal, then 5 nights in Tamarindo. I have found inexpensive shuttle transfers for everything except Liberia to Arenal. Interbus leaves at noon and my flight does not arrive until 1 p.m. Is transportation pretty to arrange once you arrive or will I be stuck paying180 for a private transfer? Does anyone know of another shuttle service?

Readers "like" answers, and the best float to the top.
