After spending time near Arenal (Finca Luna Nueva Lodge), Bijagua (Casitas Tenorio), and Playa Panama (Casa Conde del Mar) we'll spend one night in Alajuela before we head home via SJO.
* Tuesday July 16th – drive from Playa Panama to the Buena Vista Hotel (best route?). We'd like to check into hotel as early as possible, then find a local hike. Perhaps at Poas? Any cloud forest nearby?
* Wednesday July 17th – go see the Poas crater as early as possible (hopefully it will be clear!), then come back to check out of our hotel as late as possible. Eat a quick/early lunch, then return our car (Mapache) and head to the SJO airport for a 3:30 flight home.
Any suggestions on what to do with our time in Alajuela? I don’t think I’m interested in the La Paz waterfall experience, though it certainly looks lovely.
