Chris Goes to the Arenal Paraiso Hotel

The view of the volcano, from our window.

Here's our cabin.

View from inside the cabin.

This is the restaurant at the Arenal Paraiso Hotel. The entire hotel seems to be set up so that no matter where you go you get an impressive view of the volcano.

A hummingbird enjoys a snack at the hotel.

Nam is tuckered out waiting for the tour bus in the hotel's reception area.

The maids made this odd towel-flower display thing for the room.

A crane enjoys the lake on the hotel grounds.

If you are thinking of going to Peru instead of Costa Rica, see my Peru Page.

If you are thinking of going to Southern France instead of Costa Rica, see my France Page.

If for some reason you think that I'm a great writer, and you like scary, conspiracy-laden, psychological thrillers (think DaVinci Code), you can read my novel, City of Pillars, published by The Invisible College Press. It has nothing to do with Costa Rica though. PS: I use my middle name as my nom de plume, but it's still me.

If for some reason you want to read my creepy, melancholy, darkly-humorous photocomic, just click on this link for tiny ghosts. Unlike the book, this is totally free! However, it also doesn't have anything to do with Costa Rica.

I don't really have a lot more information than what's written in here, but if you want to contact me about something, mail me at:
