El Volcán Arenal

This weekend our group went on an excursion to The Fortuna Waterfall and a volcano named Arenal. We had an amazing time! Becky and I already have plans to come back sometime.





we took a dip in there too. it was cold!














this is what we saw when we pulled up to the hotel:






here's the view from our hotel room (don't be jealous now...)





The next day (Sunday) we went on a hike to get closer to the volcano-- as close as you can safely go, anyway.




¡Monos! (monkeys)... not in a zoo









Look closely... there are little ants carrying leaves :)










a flower that only lives for a day... ¡qué triste!













our tour guide told us about some of the medicinal plants in the rain forest










Arenal

here's a video of the volcano spewing! if we were close enough it would look more like lava...













amazing view!
