At the base of the volcano, you almost feel like you can reach out and touch it. Wear sunscreen and hope the clouds dissipate so you can see the cone.

A nice boat road to the the other side of this sweet man made lake. A tranquil journey to meet a bus that will go to Monteverde.

Costa Rica Expeditions had arranged a private boat for my husband and me to travel from Monteverde Lodge to Nayara across Lake Arenal. When the boat driver learned we were interested in photographing birds, he really went out of his way to make sure we had plenty of time and were close to shore. Ringed Kingfisher, Green kingfisher, Anhinga, Little Blue Heron and of course beautiful Snowy Egret and Great Egret.

I suggest a rental car for Costa Rica. Great to take in the views and to stop and the great places around Lake Arenal, like Cafe Macadamia and Toad Hall.
