Arenal Volcano

Arenal Volcano is one of a few active volcanoes in Costa Rica.  We were traveling during rainy season – mid summer – and did not expect to see it without any clouds. During rainy season most of the time it is covered with cloud cover. We spent couple days around there hiking, zip lining and soaking in the hot pools heated by the heat from the volcano. On the second day we woke up around 6AM and were fortunate to catch about 30 minutes of somewhat clear sky around the volcano. I guess the Gods of Winds decided to have some morning action and blew the cover off the mountain, just enough time to snap a few photos and enjoy the scenery. Then it was blown all over back and you could not see a thing.

I like this one too, it is just not as clear as previous photo, but it doesn’t have tree branches on top.

  1. I love this! I was in Costa several years ago and stayed a few days at the Observatory Lodge. I bought a postcard at the gift shop to remember my stay, but your photos are far better!!!
