San Jose to Villa Blanca Cloud Forest Lodge

About ten this morning we walked the mile or so to the rental car place, picked up our rental car and then drove back to our hotel to pick up our luggage. There must have been a breast cancer run here this morning because we saw a ton of people in pink.

We drove about seventy miles northwest from San Jose to Villa Blanca Cloud Forest Lodge where we will be staying the next two nights. The roads were very good until we turned off to the lodge. Then we had ten kilometers of road that was a bit rough.

The lodge is amazing. We were greeted by the very friendly staff who gave us juice to drink, gave us warm aromatherapy towels and helped us with our luggage. We have our own casita with a fireplace. Soon after we arrived it started to rain and we sat on our porch enjoying the thunder and rain and reading.

For dinner we started with carrot soup and a Greek salad. For the main course I had chicken and Duke had steak.

Because Duke had already filled out the hotels.com check in survey they gave us complimentary desert, chocolate torte with ice cream for me and tres leches cake for Duke.

The main lodge is where the dining room is. It also has a pool table. So after dinner I let Duke conquer me at a game of pool.

Now we are back in the room sitting by the fire reading.
