Costa Rica actually has 7 active volcanos. If you click on this picture it will enlarge it and you can see this one better. This is Volcano Arenal, the most popular and the most active. This was the best picture I could get of it all day, it does like to hide in the clouds. The city of La Fortuna is pretty much right next to it. There is also a very nice park there. This is one of the few perfect cone volcanos in the world. Looks like something right out of past. Costa Rica’s largest lake is Lake Arenal, it is so beautiful and you can go wind surfing on it as well. There is so much to do in this country it is amazing. You look at it on a map it looks so tiny, but once you step inside you will be amazed at how big it really is.
The earthquake we had last week so far has not bothered any of our volcanos here in Costa Rica. Although it has set one off in Nicaragua, which has not effected us. I do hope that is settles down soon, I would love to visit up there. Nicaragua is our neighbor just to the north of us, so it is very close.
So, when you come to visit Costa Rica, just because it looks small doesn’t mean you will be able to do everything that you want to do while here. You will probably need to make several trips, but it will be well worth it.
