Arenal Volcano/Nayara Springs
The drive to Arenal Volcano takes around 2 hours, allowing for a relaxing start to the day. The two lane road was mostly well made, but there were several sections which had broken up to gravel. Fruit sellers dot themselves all along the road – no problem finding your five a day in this tropical environment!

Caribbean Fashion Cocktail – 7 year old Centenario rum, coconut water infused with rice, cinnamon and orang peel, orange syrup and angostura bitters
Guaro Sour – a local cocktail made with a clear liquid distilled from sugar cane.
The resort works with the family run Beneficio (processing facility) in the Tarrazu region of Costa Rica in the small community of La Violeta. The higher altitude gives the coffee its distinctive chocolate and nutty flavour.
