|Termales de Bosque & Arenal Volcano Album|
Now that we were rested, we got an early start to a long day at the Arenal Volcano. This is advertised as the second most active volcano in the world, but my brief research puts it in the top five or ten most active. Either way, it was awesome to hear the rumbling and watch rocks roll down the side of the volcano. We took a hike around the 1982 lava flows, which was filled with lizards, frogs, a snake, and some cool plants.
The rest of the day was rough...swimming back at the lodge, while sipping on pina coladas (made with fresh pineapple) which offered an amazing view of the volcano and surrounding countryside. The evening was finished off with dinner filled with a view of the volcano spewing out red hot lava. Very cool stuff.
