Day 3 – Arenal: Kayaking, Zip Line, Organic Farm & La Forutna Waterfall

Today, April 22 our group traveled to Arenal Lake to gain some experience in the kayaking field.  Rowing was awful TIRING but paid off in the end when our group was aloud to swim in the lake. 
After a great experience at the lake ZIPPLINING was the next destination.  There where 9 zip lines to travel across.  Safety gear was fitted to our body figure, rules where explained, and off they sent us.  Traveling at high speeds over trees, plants, and water streams makes for a great venture through the woods.
The organic farm felt like home.  Many plants filled the area, animals were under the shelter, and fish was in the pond.  The owner aloud many students to be active while on the tour of his farm.  I got to pull the root of a plant/tree out of the ground while others ate peppers, pineapple, sugar cane, and chips.  Eye opener is the way to explain that organic farm.
The water fall leaves a great image in your head, you feel like your dreaming.  After 800 steps to the bottom the cool clear water becomes a relaxing location.  When walking or swimming looking down is key due to many rocks and a few fish that make up the fall.  Only 800 steps up to the top are in your way of a nap after touring this water fall.
