Outside the Westin hotel the morning of the wedding. There was a food and wine festival going on in the surrounding streets.
The Westin hotel....our room was below the sign and to the right one window.
Squirrels living in the side of a window across the street from the Westin.
Montana Del Fuego...our first hotel in Costa Rica. Here you see our actual "cabin". This area is called La Fortuna and the volcano is directly behind me if I were to turn around in the picture above.
This little guy scared the pants off Kim during our first dinner in Costa Rica. He is a local dog who walked into the restaurant as if he owned the place.
The view from our small balcony on the back side of the cabin.
Close up of the view from the backside of our cabin.
Arenal Volcano...this is the view from the front of our cabin. We were very lucky to have few clouds surrounding the volcano.

Tabacon is a very popular spot to just relax. No, I don't know who's in the picture.
During the drive up to Cano Negro National Wildlife Reserve...the guides stopped and picked a fresh pineapple from a local pineapple farm. They served the pineapple to us as a snack before heading out on the boat at Cano Negro.
