We spent the weekend up in the Arenal area of Costa Rica near the border of Nicaragua. We stayed in a quaint little hotel called the Linda Vista Del Norte. It was one of the only three hotels that had a view of the active side of the volcano; the lava flow seems to switch sides every year or so. We looked at another hotel in the area, but it was a little sketchy because it was only $20 a night. The last time I paid $20 for a night I woke up with Will in my bed covered in plastic. I don’t know what that means.
So here are a few pictures from our balcony. There was a view of the volcano and of Lake Arenal. This is the latter – I am still putting the finishing touches on the volcano pictures. The second picture below was of a flower on the property that I took right after an afternoon rainstorm.
