Lava Walk at Arenal Volcano National Park
The lava walk at Arenal National Park is a unique opportunity to experience an active volcano in all its magnificence. The walk itself is a leisurely half hour walk arriving at an extensive lava field, formed in the massive explosions of 1968. Once on the lava, the proximity of the volcano is breath taking. The volcano is constantly spewing lava.
House sized boulders can be seen careening down the sides at tremendous speeds. It makes a sound like a large dump truck spilling a load of gravel. Personally I’ve done the lava walk four times and each and every time I am awe struck yet again.
