Photo Friday: Arenal Volcano, Costa Rica

I went to Costa Rica in January 2011 with my sister for a combo “I need to escape from the miserable cold of Chicago winter” and “I want to spend actual quality time with my only sibling” trip. I’d rate both those aspects of the trip a success. We traveled around the country for about a week, with a first stop at Arenal Volcano. For almost every moment of the time we spent around Arenal, it was clouded over. Until one afternoon…

Wait for it…

Keep waiting…

Almost there…

Ta-da!

These photos were taken from the patio of Hotel Las Colinas, which I’d recommend if you want to stay near Arenal but don’t want to spend a fortune on one of the fancy resorts. It’s a small hotel in La Fortuna with a friendly staff, tasty breakfast, and (obviously) a great view of the volcano, when the sky cooperates.
