We spent the morning in the pool and then after paying our hotel manager David, he gave us a lift to La Fortuna Waterfall.
The waterfall was beautiful and stunning. However, we did have to climb down (and more painfully, up) around 500 steps to reach it.
After viewing it we swam in the river nearby (you weren’t allowed to swim by the waterfall for it being too dangerous). The water was freezing but the view was amazing and you soon got used to the temperature. There were also fish in the water that were decently scared of people but not massively so.
“The waterfall was really cold so I got out quick before I froze and there were also a lot of fish which was kind of cool” – James
On the way back up we followed the orchid trail although there were very few orchids flowered because of the time of year. We also did the butterfly trail and saw a fair amount of butterflies and hummingbirds.
Then instead of getting an uber we walked. This was because it was much cheaper and only about 45 minutes downhill. On the route we saw some more wildlife (mainly cool flowers) and the walk was quite pleasant.
“The walk back was quite tiring but to be honest it was alright and didn’t take that long” – James
“Then we went to the supermarket and had dinner and then we played games on the floor” – Mum
“The games were good apart from Fluxx. I didn’t like Fluxx. It’s just annoying because you get good cards and then people put things down so you can’t keep the good cards” – Megan. I actually quite like the game most of the time.
