We are arriving to SJO late in the evening so we are spending the night at Corteza Amarilla Hotel, to avoid driving to La Fortuna at night.
The plan is to get up early the next morning and drive to La Fortuna. Volcan Poas looks like a great sight to see so I'm interested in stopping there on my way up. From there drive to La Fortuna and stop to check the La Paz Waterfall (is it possible to see the waterfall without having to do the whole tour?).
What's the best route to accomodate this itinerary? I read that the 2009 quake brought quite some damage to the roads but how is the drive today?
What time would I expect to be at our hotel in Arenal (Volcano Lodge)?
Thank you much!
