Costa Rica 2: Arenal Volcano

We drove from Selva Verde to La Fortuna at the base of Arenal Volcano. Stopped at a small store next to a bridge where they protected and fed iguanas - LOTS of them. Stopped in La Fortuna for a few minutes to look around, then took a trip up to the lava fields. We went on a horeseback ride (in the pouring rain) to La Fortuna Falls the following morning, followed by a bit of wallowing in the hot springs at The Springs Hotel. The last morning we had spectacular views of the volcano from our hotel room, and also were entertained by lots of hummingbirds. All very nice, indeed!
