arenal observatory lodge

the arenal observatory lodge is a high-end hotel/spa that sits only 1.7 miles south of the volcano.

while we did see lava (rojo), it was in the form of molten rocks, cascading down the mountainside. ..the big eruption was not taking place on this excursion.

although jacqueline and i wanted to stay and observe more arenal lava, the guide was on a schedule -- which included getting us over to baldi hot springs (because they close at 10 pm). ..we were rushed out of the observatory before getting any good lava pics. ..oh, well.

next post: baldi hot springs
