Hello from Costa Rica! Yesterday, we went swimming in La Fortuna waterfall in La Fortuna near the Volcan Arenal. We were the only ones swimming in the pool below the waterfall. It is about 100 feet high and the water was crashing into the pool, creating a lot of waves. One of the guides said that one of the dangerous parts about swimming there is that sometimes debris comes crashing into the pool with the water. Recently, a giant tree came sliding down the cascade! Good thing we werenÂ´t there when that happened! Anyways, if you are ever in La Fortuna, this is a fun place to go within walking distance of the town. Watch out for falling trees though and get ready for some seriously chilly water. Next up…zip zip zipping across the rainforest.
