Great view of the sunset in the middle of the national park: Observatory Bar @ Arenal Observatory Lodge (17. April 2017)

| June 27, 2017 | 0 Comments

When you intend to visit the El Arenal National Park, I can recommend you two things: a) stay at the Arenal Observatory Lodge & Spa (which is the only one located right in the national park) and b) bring good shoes. It is definitely worth staying here as there is a beautiful trail area where you can walk and climb the mountain to Cerro Chato (especially here: good shoes are key).

When you are done with the 64 levels you’ve done this day according to your iPhone, it is time to relax at the bar – from 5pm to 6pm, when the sun goes down (marvelous view), you get two for one, so I picked a “Margarita” (4’600 CRC) or rather two. The Margarita isn’t bad but it was definitely not the best I’ve had so far. What I truly don’t understand is why the straw is so tiny – I mean, I want to sip quite a bit not a tiny tiny sip.

So, if you make it early in the evening (around 5pm), you can get a great spot to watch the sun go down over the lake area which is just breath-taking – and with the one, two, or three rounds of drinks during happy hour, it makes it all the more enjoyable!
