We wish we could've stayed longer, but it was time to leave Drake Bay.
Yes, Hello Kitty made this trip with me. Luggage was limited to 27 pounds per person.
Some people hate small planes. I'm not one of those people.

Our master suite had far more room than we needed, a computer with high-speed Internet access, and quite a good view of Volcán Arenal, the most active volcano in Costa Rica.

I screamed. A lot.
Next: Volcanic activity, flora and fauna, and hanging bridges.
