Arenal volcano

I made a reservation at a hotel near the volcano(Los Lagos). If the volcano is active, do you hear or feel its rumblings all night? (I'm a light sleeper)

I was never awakened by its rumblings and am also a light sleeper. I awoke though to see an awesome visual display at 1AM of the molten boulders rolling down the volcano and breaking up lke red Christmas lights covering it. Brings binocs to get a better look at the action.

We stayed in the hotel at the Observatory and when we were there there were no eruptions although occasionally there was a faint huffing noise as ash was expelled. We stayed in a room in the "old" building and could actually lay in bed and look out the window at the volcano. We loved it, although the restaurant was not memorable.

The Volcano won't keep you up. We heard one rumble and one "pop!" on 2 separate trips.

Arenal is unforgettable.

You'll love it!!!!

My husband and I stayed at the Observatory Lodge recently and I too am a light sleeper. The volcano actually did wake me up with loud explosions a couple of times, but it was exciting rather than irritating, and I would take the opportunity since I was awake to watch the red hot boulders spew from the top and bounce down the hillside. I agree with hotzim about the restaurant. It was overpriced and not very good, but we enjoyed staying at the Observatory Lodge since you are almost in the foothills of the volcano.
