Costa Rica Part 2- Arenal Observatory

Like I said here everyone in Costa Rica was really helpful and friendly. The first encounter of this was the guy at the Dollar Rental shop who showed us a bunch of places to go in La Fortuna that weren’t tourist packed. So day two after checking into our hotel and getting some lunch we drove up a treacherous mountain road to get to the observatory he recommended. I’m going to let the pictures do the talking with just comments on them. Like with most places, the pictures don’t do the beauty justice.
