You Never Know Where They’ll Show Up

Looking over to the Arenal Volcano from the Santa Elena cloud forest reserve in Monteverde, Costa Rica.

Thanks Ed O!

    I remember looking up at Arenal from the hot springs spa at the base of it. There were smoke & sparks coming out of the mountain at the time. Our tour guide leaned across the swim-up bar and said “you know, Senor, we are really TOO close to that volcano”

      I enjoyed the hell out of the hot springs there, but at that point the cloud ceiling was so low that the thunder was setting off car alarms.

      Not a single bit of the volcano was visible in that weather, so I was damn glad I took the longer route through Santa Elena to get the distance view.

    Headed to CR this weekend for the first time! Super stoked, hopefully the rain will hold off for us…

      I was worried looking at the forecast that there would be 12 hours rain every day, but I was pleasantly surprised! Even with early October still being “rainy season” I didn’t see more than a few hours rain in the evening most days.

      Still: have an umbrella, and have a pack-cover. Well worth it.

    Pleasantly surprised to see some SSD readers that are so keen on the Tico lifestyle! I can’t wait to get back there myself!
