Hiking at Arenal Volcano (Julia Kocubinski)
We were able to sleep in a bit today, and had a late breakfast at the lodge. The rest of the guests had checked out or headed out for the day, so we had the whole place to ourselves. We didn't have any activities planned, and even though the lodge did offer many services, we were ready for a day of relaxation. We read a bit, wandered around the lodge, played with the dogs, and just enjoyed a quiet morning. After our busy week, today was a welcome break. In the afternoon, Marco, one of our local drivers, and Cynthia from our office in San Jose, came to pick us up in the afternoon to drive us back to San Jose. We stopped at a restaurant for lunch along the way, and got back to San Jose around five. We decided to go straight to the office to pick up everyone else, and we all headed out for ice cream. It was really fun to finally meet our local staff, and to see their office. Fabio, the president of the local company, took us to a grocery store to buy some souvenirs before heading back to Le Bergerac for the night. We said our goodbyes and settled into our hotel. Even though we didn't have a lot planned today, it was a perfect and relaxing day to end our busy vacation.
