~Travel Friends & Friends Costa Rica 7~
 
 
 
Leaving Monte Verde on the bumpiest road I have ever been on (supposedly improved) to the countryside leading to Lake Arenal. This is the largest man made lake in Costa Rica, the process relocating entire communities then flooding the area. Electricity is produced from this lake which sits in the shadow of Volcano Arenal, one of the most active volcanoes on the Earth. It has been continuously erupting since 1968. Often steam clouds completely hid it. The sign on the other side of the lake indicates that there are crocodiles in it.
