My husband and I will be going to Costa Rica for about 11 days at the end of Nov. 2010. We are flying into San Jose and then taking a transfer to the Arenal area for a few days. We are looking at looking to stay at either the Arenal Lodge or Observatory. Which have better rooms with views of the vulcano view and what rooms at either would you recommend. We are also looking at doing some of the activities (hot springs, suspension bridge, rafting and canopy tours perhaps) and which hotel is closer to the majority of the major sites?
