He cruises to Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve and encounters tarantulas, deadly snakes and rare birds before arriving at Volcan Arenal, where he relaxes in the hot springs. In Liberia, he attends a bull fiesta where tries his hand at being a cowboy. He crosses the border into Nicaragua and stops at El Castillo, site of the only castle in Central America.
