We hear many birds: Three wattle bellbird, green toucan, azure hooded jay, highland tinamou, ...

Next adventure was the zip line, they had a special helmet to which I could strap my go pro (nice one!). First zip line was a practice one (gripped a bit too hard was my feedback!), the next couple were awesome but not that scary, didn't really scream! Then came the rappel and I did let out a mini scream (lol scared about the Tarzan swing now!).
The last sitting down zip line was sooo ...
... observatory which I was told I could hike up to. It was quite a climb! I met some friendly horses along the way and eventually reached the observatory, where I could get a much closer look at the volcano, although it was mostly covered in clouds just as it had been since we arrived. It was still pretty cool though! Apparently the volcano is in a 'resting phase' which started in 2010. Before a violent eruption in 1968 which buried three towns and killed 87 people Arenal ...
