Mother and Son in Costa Rica
The hike was not difficult, but all were glad to be welcomed with fresh water at the end, and with a place to sit affording an excellent view of the volcano. Our guide ended the tour by sharing with us the history of the volcano, including past instances of very destructive eruptions. At present, the volcano is in a semi-dormant state. We learned that Costa Rica is home to many, many volcanoes. Arenal may well be the most stunning and picturesque, and we were most happy to have seen it.
