route from Peace Lodge to Arenal

Does anyone have a current update on the condition of the road from Peace Lodge to Arenal via Poas, and how long one should expect it to take? Also, anyone with a current update and personal assessment of the trout lake construction at the Peace Lodge? Thanks.

I am certainly not an expert, but I have recently booked with Peace Lodge and they sent me a map because we are also going to Arenal after our stay. Looks like you you have to back track to Alejeulah (sp?) and then go up to Arenal. They said it is about 4 hours. Just email them and ask them to send you an attachment with the routes.

Last I heard, the Trout Lake was scheduled to open back up in August, but you'd have to check with them on their progress. Their website lists what's back open already and the schedule for everything else to be fully open.

I trust the DOT in Costa Rica...they said nothing is going to be open in a least a year...to many problems...Costa Rica offer a lot of nice places to visit...why risking your life?

The only way is backtrackking ...to Alajuela!
