After an unforgettable time in La Fortuna, we were ready to experience our next location, Monteverde! The little town of Monteverde is a beautiful small hilly town that that gains it's main tourism from the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve that is located right next to the main town. If you visit this Monteverde for no other reason than visiting the Cloud Forest, you will be very happy! The Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve was our main attraction to this area of Costa Rica, but don't count out this small town, it does have a lot to offer too!
Once we endured the drive on the crazy roads around Costa Rica, we finally arrived in La Fortuna. Many people know of the small town of La Fortuna for the volcano located there called the Arenal Volcano. This active volcano was just

Many people travel to Costa Rica to for the beautiful beaches and surfing but during our trip, we focused on seeing volcanos and the rainforest. I would love to go back one day for the beaches and maybe I'll learn to surf too! Another really interesting fact about our trip was that we actually used Groupon to book part of it, which I will go into more detail about later. First, I want to share the story and stories from our trip!
