Snake on the grass (Colin Sorenson)
Day seven of my tour began with a sunrise bike ride on the road from Playa Cocles to Puerto Viejo - very nice. After a plentiful tropical breakfast at Cariblue I took a minibus transfer bound for the Arenal Observatory Lodge. My view of the erupting volcano from AOL's Smithsonian Block would have been spectacular if it weren't cloaked in dense cloud cover - oh well, not being able to control the weather is something I've learned to accept. Next time I'll have to extend my stay and make sure I take in the volcano views!
