We’ve tried to see Arenal on prior trips and had it completely obscured by clouds, but this time it was out in all its glory. It’s somewhere in the top 10 most active volcanoes in the world (lists vary). We hiked up a trail in Arenal National Park for the best view. While we were sitting there quietly, you could hear cracking and hissing, followed by rockslides visible with the naked eye.
The macaw did a good job of posing right in front of the mountain during our lunch, don’t you think??
