Current digs. Arenal volcano is right behind that thick wall of mist that won't budge 😢 #rainraingoaway #arenalobservatorylodge #arenalvolcano #wetseason #costarica #centralamerica #poortiming
Just a casual tractor ride through the forest. #rainforest #rainfordays #costarica #arenal #arenalobservatorylodge

A shorter post today after my late one last time. My morning wakeup calls have been howler monkeys by the coast, the traditional cockerel in the cloud forest and now a troupe of arguing spider monkeys 🙊! Last night we watched the sunset and finally had an unobstructed view of the volcano 🌋, complete with steam coming out of the top. Just in time ⌚ for us to leave. On the way back home, we stopped off at a waterfall 💦 where I swam in the river beneath amongst the trout, the only one to go in! It was so refreshing. #arenal #arenalobservatorylodge #costaricapuravida #costarica #puravidacostarica #puravida #arenalvolcano
A late post today as the internet went down. This happens in Costa Rica and power cuts are not unusual. I usually post the morning after about my day, otherwise my posts would come while most of you are asleep! It was an early start for a nature hike in the rain. We saw monkeys 🙊, a waterfall and this toucan; we've seen them closer, but this was taken through a telescope 🔭. We did watch the football ⚽, but I won't say any more about it. In the afternoon, we went swimming 🏊, ending up in the jacuzzi as the pool was too cold ❄, but there were beautiful views as it was surrounded by rainforest and a view of the volcano 🌋. At the end of the day, we went on a night hike of our own to the resort's frog 🐸 pond, where we saw three species, lots of insects including fireflies and a snake! 🐍 We head back to civilisation tomorrow. Trying not to think 🤔 about it. #costaricapuravida #costarica #puravidacostarica #puravida #arenal #arenalobservatorylodge #toucan #toucans
I got to do something today that I haven't done for 20 years: go horseriding 🐴. We rode through the rainforest including through rivers and it was glorious. All our horses wanted to be in the lead, especially mine, so there was a lot of jockeying about going on. I lost my stirrups at one point! Then we had a walk around the gardens and had lunch overlooking the volcano 🌋. In the afternoon, we went to a hot springs water 💦 park, complete with slides. It's been an action-packed day! #arenal #arenalobservatorylodge #costaricapuravida #costarica #puravidacostarica #puravida #horseriding #horseride #horserides #horseriding 🐴
We may have saved the best place for last. Surrounded by cloud 🌥 forest with all the attending wildlife, including the spider monkeys 🙊 we saw this afternoon, numerous frogs and weird birds 🐦with views of a massive lake and an actual active, if quiet, volcano 🌋, the seismic observatory where we are is a magical place. There is no light at night though. Glad I'm over my fear of the dark! In most places, there is at least a glimmer, but it's completely pitch black. Anyway, hope to get a photo of the top of the volcano and explore our resort more tomorrow #arenal #arenalobservatoryLodge #puravida #puravidacostarica #costarica #costaricapuravida
Would you hike for 6 hours to catch a glimpse of this? 🌋 . . . I am so lucky to have ventured up through the #arenalnationalpark taking in all of the wildlife, sounds and sights including this one of #arenalvolcano . A full day of adventure started early in the morning, where in a group of 10 we began the hike. Our tour guide helped us in identifying all the creatures and sounds of the forest. Lead us to an incredible waterfall for lunch and a swim, both of which I was more than ready for. After a few more hours we were half way back down where we had coffee and cookies. A shuttle bus took us to near by hotsprings, this was so good, the water was steaming, we had mud facials, cocktails and all by candle light. The group had so much fun. The shuttle drops you back at your accommodation around 8pm.

They say only about 25% of guests staying at Arenal Observatory Lodge actually get to see the entire Arenal Volcano due to constant coverage from thick clouds...today I became that 25%! And climbed the 92 foot observatory nest to get an unobstructed view. 💁🏼‍♀️🌋🌲#arenalvolcano #arenalobservatorylodge #rainyseason #volcanos #costarica #arenal #lafortuna #puravida
Day 2 1pm Arenal observatory lodge : 4 hours later we are ar Arenal Lodge, waiting to check into our room. The road trip was beautiful, alternating between rain and the sun and listening to the Spain Russia match over shaky car radio. I must admit nobody can do commentary better than the spanish speakers. What enthusiasm. Too bad Spain lost!! Meanwhile we are sitting inside the cafe enjoying Costa Rica's monsoon and the diverse avian community. This little hummingbird is perched right outside the window . #costarica2018 #costaricatraveler #costaricatravel #costaricapuravida #costaricalife #arenalvolcano #arenalobservatorylodge #volcano #globetrotters #travelstory #primadonaskitchen

“Daddy, I found a beautiful frog hiding over here!” - I took this picture of a Masked Treefrog in Costa Rica but all the credit goes to my sharp-eyed daughter who spotted it from the observation deck at @arenalobservatorylodge #frog #treefrog #maskedtreefrog #arenal #arenalvolcano #arenalobservatorylodge #costarica #amphibian #frogsofinstagram #treefrogsofinstagram #nature #wildlife #becurious
I saw the famous tree frog of Costa rica, you will see this on most adverts and information regarding CR...I can see why, he's pretty cool! #costarica #lafortuna #arenalobservatorylodge #wildlife #treefrog #frogs

Volcan Arenal in all its glory. It’s rare to see the top but we had a perfect view this afternoon!
This little #coati came wandering out of the brush below the deck of the #arenalobservatorylodge . #arenalvolcano #costarica

We had a bumpy, dusty, hot day of driving only to find ourselves driving in the rain and the dark on muddy roads before we got to our next stop. The hotel didn’t have our kids on the reservation and we ended up in a cramped, tired room. We went to sleep exhausted and crabby. The next morning, Clementine swept her arms to the window joyfully and said “there it is!” to this view from our balcony. Toucans and monkeys were moving in the trees and the volcano was so commanding that all of our annoyances from the previous day were forgotten. 🌋🌅🌴 . . . #familytravel #thisaccidentallife #family #travel #dirtroads #costaricatravel #costarica #travelwithkids #travelschooling #worldschooling #travelmemories #arenal #arenalvolcano #volcano #arenalobservatorylodge #capuchinmonkey #toucan #homeschooling #natureschooling #wildandfree #world #jungle #howlermonkey #nature #costa_rica

Beautifully subtle. Orange-bellied Trogon (Trogon aurantiiventris). Sorry about the background noise, but this was taken right outside the window of our room at the Arenal Observatory Lodge in Costa Rica, so voices and doors can be heard in the background. I managed to isolate enough of the call when I dropped the footage into the Costa Rica trip video on my Vimeo page if you’re interested. #mybirdwatch #best_birds_of_world #bird #birds #birdlife #wildlife #birdwatching #birding #birdphotography #birdfreaks #birds_private #birdvideos #birdvideo #arenalobservatorylodge #arenal #costarica
A coati we found in the jungle surrounding Arenal. I learned coatis keep their tails sticking up while foraging as a troop so they can easily find each other in tall vegetation. . . . #travel #travelphotography #costarica #arenal #puravida #nature #naturephotography #wildlifephotography #wildlife #mammal #coati #neverstopexploring #optoutside #arenalobservatorylodge #travelpics #wildlifeconservation #travelphotos

The Wild Woman has a deep love for nature, a love for the ancient Mother, though possibly misunderstood, it has always been in her. When she goes into the wilderness a part of her soul is going home.
Rainbow Eucalyptus (Eucalyptus deglupta) 📷 @norelyse ✳ When the bark is exposed it’s a bright green hue, and when it ages over time it turns blue, orange, and maroon. Eucalyptus translates into covered well (most likely referring to their flowers having an operculum). 📌 They are endemic to rainforests and forests of the Phillipines, New Guinea, and some small islands surrounding New Guinea. 🇵🇭🇵🇬 👨‍👩‍👦 Myrtaceae (Myrtle Family) . . . #RainbowEucalyptus #Eucalyptusdeglupta #eucalyptus #mindanaogum #Philippines #tree #arbol #rainbow #nature #flora #travel #natureza #randonnée #forettropicale #forest #rainboweucalyptus #arenalobservatorylodge #parcnationalvolcanarenal #lesbibisaucostarica #traveler #costarica #instatravel
Heading down to the observatory park after few hours hike through the forest trails. I really enjoyed the panoramic view of the volcano (and arenal lake) and its surprising history. Before the volcano erupted, there was no volcanologist in #costarica , and no one knew that there was a #volcano in this area. The villagers thought it was just a hill. Note that the “hill” was covered by forest and it was not as high as it is today (the explosion caused a raise in ash column about 10km in height). . . . #whenincostarica #arenaljungletours #twovolcanoestour #arenalobservatorylodge #rainforests
