Arenal Volcano Watching in Costa Rica

June 14th, 2011

Arenal VolcanoThose of you who subscribe to my Twitter account (right side >>>) received the word about ten days ago that tha Observatorio Vulcanológico y Sismológico, the volcano watching people, have set up a web cam so they can see what’s a happenin‘. You can too.  Just click here!

Arenal is a favorite tourist spot.  It is always erupting and has been for years… though some eruptions are more interesting than others.

During the rainy season (now) Arenal volcano watching can be pretty boring… but if that thing goes off, it’s a good show. Also, it is often clear late at night.  Worth an occasional visit.  It refreshes every ten seconds.

    Thanks so much for posting this. We stayed at the Observatory last October for 3 nights during our CR vacation, and had 2 spectacular nights of volcano action! Breathtaking. This webcam should keep us motivated till we return. Again, many thanks!

    I recently visited Costa Rica but spent most of my time at a resort or touring. We saw a few volcanoes but none that erupted like the one above! Thats pretty awesome! Anyways, I was intrigued by the local people and their lifestyle and I am planning on visiting again soon and was wondering if anyone could guide me in learning more about the modern culture?
