As a Geography teacher, I have to see an active volcano, it's on my list of thing to do.
Arenal seemed perfect, all the hotels boasted a view of the lava each evening.
The reality most days is rain, clouds and no view of the summit. You can't hike up to the top now either for safety reasons.
My visist saw the worst rain ever. All the roads were flooded, our hotel (12 miles across the worst dirt track) had no electricty and was isolated. Then every other hotel for miles was full, and we had to pay over the odds for a grotty and noisey room.
- Pros:Special scenery
- Cons:Cloud and rain
- In a nutshell:Pray for a clear night if you want to see the lava
Chances are, you will want to see Arenal and Monteverde, and on the map, the 2 are right next to each other. Well, you... more travel advice
