Good-Bye, Costa Rica (Flight Info)

Posted by: Erika

Today was our second day at Volcano Arenal. This morning, we went to the Rio Fortuna Watering Hole, a local attraction. It’s a deeper part of a river where people swing on a rope and drop into the water, which isn’t too cold. We returned to Volcano Lodge for lunch, and then went zip lining. Everyone enjoyed seeing the magnificent views of Costa Rica at high altitudes and (somewhat) high speeds. Next we went shopping for souvenirs in downtown La Fortuna, which is the town the hotel is in. The day concluded with dinner and some entertainment at a nearby restaurant. Towards the end of our meal, several ladies dressed in traditional Costa Rican garb began dancing. As we were about to leave, Heber and Dylan joined them. The other guests must have gotten a good laugh out of us “gringos.” We will all be very sad to leave Costa Rica tomorrow, but we are also ready to come home. Please join us at the Missions Chapel on Friday (9:00 a.m. at BRCS) to hear more about the missions work that we did, as well as see additional photos and videos.
