Picture of the Day 26.02.2016
For the record it takes a van, a boat and another van to get from La Fortuna to Monteverde and that's the fastest way. The public bus goes around the lake and takes 9 hours for the same trip which took 3 hours when doing it that way. Unfortunately it has been raining on and off all day, well I guess that's why they call it rainforest. But that meant I couldn't see the volcano from the lake. When I arrived in Monteverde I wanted to do at least something as it was already to late for the cloud-forest, so I decided to hike up the Cerro de los Amigos. Not the best decision. It was wet, rainy and very step and once at the top you were standing in the clouds and couldn't see a thing. Oh btw there is a souvenir shop on top of the mountain with two men selling handmade bracelets and other things...a really weird location. Anyways I had something to do and once I was back down I got rewarded by this great rainbow over "downtown". Hiking and exploring the Cloud Forest tomorrow.
