August 12th...a young man...showed up at the Park by himself and informed the Park Rangers that he was planning to hike inside of the park... that was the last time anybody saw the young men!
I have no idea how many times I have tell people ...that please understand that Costa Rica is a tiny country...but the danger is there and is real...
When poeple ask me about hikes near Arenal...I try to explain them that is a terrible idea! Just visit the areas well mark for visitors...and the best way...go with somebody else!
Hopefully they will find the young men...today some US helicopters are flying around the park...looking for him!
I do not like to be the one bringing this kind of news...but is good time to tell people that please becarefull when you are hiking in a unknown areas!
Just buckle up and enjoy the ride in PARADISE!
