Arenal Volcano hiking tour
Adventure Pacifica Tour in Costa Rica
I did see some lizards and a colony of leaf cutter ants. We spotted several birds, but they were too quick for me to get a picture. The Kopot or Ciembo trees were gigantic and magnificent. Several survived the 1968 volcano eruption. Pablo said that in 1968 no one knew Arenal Peak was a volcano. It rumbled and erupted in the summer of 1968 covering 2 villages on the west side. The town of Fortuna was spared. The volcano exploded from 3 columns on the west side and that side had lots of new green growth. Now I it is time for lunch and off the see the hot springs near the base of the volcano. Emr/ wed at 1207 hours.
