We were in La Fortuna and had a fabulous lake tour and could see the entire burned side of the volcano and top ( clear skies that day) but alas no lava or rock activity while we were there 3 days ( Feb 4,5,6)

Nothing yet...but on a clear day you can see the volcano and the constant stream of steam coming out the top...still an awesome site to behold. :-) By May who knows???

I'll be in Fortuna a week from today. It seems like it's been quite awhile since there was much activity on the volcano. I'm guessing it'll probably just be more of the same, or it's been building up for awhile and we'll see quite a show. I was considering doing a tour that goes to the observation area at sunset but it sounds like there many not be much to see after dark.
