After a heavy lunch, topped with Ice cream, we set off for a 21 km ride across the ridge to San Rafael de Guatuso. Just outside Arenal the road starts climbing (only for about 2 km ) but it’s a complete shambles , dirt track with rubble – a total joke. The wild life and views were truly special and the three hour low speed bumpy ride ended in a late arrival at a nice hotel. Showered and popped out to discover town. Not much to discover; two mins later we were sitting in a bar supping a local, well-earned beer.
