Weather brightened up so booked on tour this afternoon on the way we could see the debris and smoke coming down the side of the top of the volcano.  First off we did a shortish hike up to a mirador to see the volcano and Lake Arenal.     This was through a bit of jungle but sadly we didnīt see too much wildlife just lots of plants and trees.  When we got to the mirador the cloud had descended to our side of the volcano sadly but was still a good view.  Back to the bus we went to another mirador for a night view and then another.  Just clouds on that side too unfortunately.
Disappointed but knew we would be very lucky to see lava.  Next off went to Baldi Hot Springs which were fantastic.  Loads of different pools ranging in temperatures from cool to boiling hot.  Some had waterfalls, others jacuzzis, loungers, bars was all very nicely done.  Only one thing missing.............our view of lava down the volcano.  
Had a couple of hours there before we went back to town fully relaxed.
