Two more adventures in the books today! @srta_spanish and I started off the day with a boat ride across Arenal Lake. We were then off to an hour drive up to Monteverde, CR for an afternoon to ourselves for more exploration.
After an INCREDIBLE lunch at the Tree House Restaurant (there's a live tree growing in the middle of the place) we walked around downtown Santa Elena and did touristy things. Before heading back to the hotel, we stopped by a little coffee shop called "Beso Espresso". The employees there were awesome, hilarious and encouraged more practice of my broken Spanish.
Once back to the hotel, we had a little siesta and then went on a Night Tour of Monteverde Biological Reserve. THANKFULLY, we were not attacked by any creatures, did not have to encounter any snakes in the dark and to the best of my knowledge were not stalked by any mountain lions (the guide said he had seen one before on that particular trail). We had a great end to our night with a little date to El Restaurante de Lucía! Their sangría was fantastic and the food was delicious.
