I'm getting tired of the cold weather here in Illinois and am planning a little jaunt to a warm climate with some photo ops available. I've visited the Arenal Volcano in Costa Rica before, but every time I was there clouds blocked a view of the summit. I recall there are some hotels that have a view of the volcano and which will ring your room if there is a lava flow during the night and a clear view. I had no trouble finding hotels that advertised a view of the volcano, but saw no mention of the wake up service. Maybe they all do it. Anyway, hotel recommendations welcomed.
If anyone has photographed the Arenal lava flow, would a 600mm equivilant lens suffice (100-300 on Olympus OM-D)?
Thanks for any advice.
