Hotel and Volcano - Text and

We reached the Arenal Hotel and cabins
by driving westward from the Botanical Gardens, past the iguanas (and ice
cream), and past the Hot Springs which we will visit later. Most
meals were taken at the Hotel, but we had one dinner at the Kioro Restaurant,
a short distance away. Here we saw some very large "dents" in the
ground from car-sized rocks blown from the volcano (about ten miles away)
many years ago. The volcano didn't do any erupting while we were
there. See (HERE)
for a location map.
