After arriving in San Jose, we drove to the town of La Fortuna, which is the launching point for activities around the Arenal volcano. Our first day we hiked a trail to the remains of the old lava flow, which stopped activity around 2010. We also made it to a butterfly sanctuary.
Taking a break. DiploTot and DiploMom stayed behind while I went ahead to the end of the trail. DiploTot had to have been thinking what in the world we had drug her into.
