    Pool-Breakfast with a view!!!

    June 23, 2017 in Costa Rica ⋅ ☀️ 28 °C

    Die wirkliche Schönheit dieses Ortes ist mir erst am zweiten Tag aufgefallen. Als ich ankam, war es leider schon dunkel. Ich habe weder den Vulkan gesehen, noch die wunderschöne Farbenpracht der Blumen oder meinen zimmereigenen Pool mit warmen Thermalwasser. Nayara teilt sich in zwei Resorts auf. Oben am Hang liegt das kinderfreundliche Resort und am Fuße des Hangs Nayara Spring der Teil für Erwachsene. Das Resort ist auf einen Felsen gebaut, deswegen geht es auch ab und zu ziemlich steil hoch. Doch die größte Herausforderung beim Bau der Villen war es, keinen Baum zu fällen.Read more

    Day 3, Arenal Hot Springs

    December 24, 2017 in Costa Rica ⋅ ☀️ 88 °F

    In Fortuna, under the view of the Arenal volcano, we visited the Baldi hotel and spa. Different level pools run down the mountain. The hottest water comes from the top "waterfall" and cools as it moves down. There are also cold spas where you can sit to cool off before heading back to the hot water.

     This water has a high concentration of minerals and is naturally heated by the nearby volcano. Our skin felt very soft when we were done. Look at those big smiles!

    Ecogarden Tour

    July 6, 2016 in Costa Rica ⋅ ☀️ 70 °F

    Had a lovely tour this evening. Ecogarden was built be a man named Jose. He bought the property 5 years ago and developed a garden with native plants to attract native animals. And it worked! We saw a crazy number of frogs and insects, as well as 2 sloths. We held poison dart frogs in our hands and on our noses. Jose was very knowledgable about all the animals and plants. Afterward his wife served us some tea made of sugarcane and ginger and some local snacks. An adorable family run operation.Read more

    July 7, 2017 in Costa Rica ⋅ ⛅ 63 °F

    Arenal (La Fortuna - but we were way out of town) was loads of fun. For starters we were staying in a spa hotel that was really nice.

    The first day we went to see the hanging bridges in the rainforest. The suspension bridges themselves were cool (very high and moved around a lot) and the wildlife was more of the same we've seen elsewhere in CR - sloths, monkeys, snakes, etc which is always good to see!

    We also did a walk around the volcano which was good. The first time it erupted was in 1968 and last time in 2010, making it pretty active! You aren't allowed to climb the volcano but you can walk around it.

    After a lot of walking we then went to Tabacon hot springs which are the nicest hot springs I think I've ever been to. We also had a buffet dinner which was to die for, but I filled my plate to the brim and ended up having four different types of meat and lots of the little desserts. I went to bed at 8.30pm with the biggest food coma.

    The next day we had a chilled day of no activities so spent the day by the pool and also at the gym. It was nice to have a day where we just enjoyed the hotel because it's so fancy and even has a pool bar where you can eat sushi in the swimming pool.

    We're off on a boat to Monteverde tomorrow. Already halfway through Mum and Rosy's holiday, and two weeks into my time in Costa Rica - time goes way too quickly but it's been great so far and we've got more good stuff to look forward to including the cloud rainforest and five days on the beach in Guancaste.

    Abschied vom Arenal

    March 22, 2015 in Costa Rica ⋅ ⛅ 13 °C

    Ein neuer Tag bricht an am Fuße des wie immer wolkenverhangenen Vulkans Arenal. Ein letzter Blick in den tropischen Garten und dann verlassen wir unseren Bungalow am Arenal und weiter gehts heute in Richtung Monte Verde...
    Das erste Highlight des Tages begegnet uns schon nach kurzer Fahrt: Eine Familie von Nasenbären, die neugierig jedes Auto, das anhält, um die süßen Tierchen zu fotografieren, belagert: Hast Du was zu fressen?Read more

    Hot Springs

    April 21, 2018 in Costa Rica ⋅ ☀️ 31 °C

    Nachdem der morgendliche Regen aufgehört hat, machen wir uns auf den Weg zu den heißen Quellen. Vorbei an einigen teuren Resorts, die Eintritt für das Thermalwasser verlangen, suchen und finden wir die nicht weniger bekannte Stelle, an der man freien Zutritt zu den natürlichen Pools hat.
    Wellness pur!
