My son, Ben, and I traveled to Costa Rica in March. We stayed at the Volcano Lodge near the Arenal Volcano. We visited butterfly gardens, frog farms, and went on several eco-tours. The area is in a cloud forest which differs from a rainforest because the moisture from clouds keeps it moist. We went to Tabacon Hot Springs for a day. A river flows out from the volcano at 105 degrees. It is in a steepsided valley filled with tropical trees and plants. It is the closest I've been to Eden.
