COSTA RICA´S WORLDWIDE RECORD for generating its electricity from renewable sources for 300 days owes much of its success to the town of Nuevo Arenal. We will explore why & how! On the same decade, the Arenal volcano erupted & the country’s largest lake, Lake Arenal, enveloped 2 towns (All of my grandparents’ original villages). We will explore this overlooked spot of world-wide historical & renewable energy importance. 1st) We will enjoy a local gastronomic component, including an insider's look at a genuinely-local restaurant's private organic garden. 2nd) We will take a unique historical/sightseeing walking tour through the newly rebuilt town of Nuevo Arenal, exploring several of the locals’ most treasured secrets, filled with secrets from the past as well as world-class strides in renewable energy. We’ll discuss history, family stories and hard-won lessons all along the hiking part of the experience. 3rd) We will visit a little-known peninsula on the historical Lake Arenal, where the lake flooded two towns that were forced to relocate (including Nuevo Arenal). We will have time to enjoy the stunning view, take a swim and/or relax at the shore of this amazing historical lake.
