July 23, 2012 - The next installment of our itinerary was the Arenal volcano, a popular stop on the Costa Rica tourist circuit.

The car seemed to not have suffered too much damage from our race to make the 1 PM ferry the other day, so we casually made our way to the Arenal volcano, having booked a spot at Volcano Lodge. Sadly, the weather was such we didn't get a single peak of the volcano and we also found out that the thing had gone silent a few years ago, sapping our desire for a hike to the top.

The patio of our room bordered on a garden with a wild variety of flowers which turned out to be a feeding ground for dozens of hummingbirds. We sat very quietly on the deck and watched the air-to-air combat of the humming birds, cameras at the ready.

Our next stop proved to be the most challenging but the most rewarding.
Back in YVR after riding around the world for 2 years.
