Costa Rica - Royal Corin Hotel in La Fortuna

We arrived at The Royal Corin hotel on Tuesday at noon. The hidden canopy treehouse is a bed & breakfast. This is a regular hotel. The busy season ended about 2 weeks ago, so it's not crowded at all. All 75 rooms have an excellent view of the Arenal Volcano and there are hot springs which feed the swimming pool & jacuzzis... All of which are a warm 104 degrees... A bit hot for the daytime but very nice & relaxing in the evenings.

View from our balcony

As we sat on the balcony enjoying the view and complimentary wine & cheese plate, little pieces of black ash started falling from the sky! At first we thought the volcano (dormant for the past 3 years) was having some activity. Turns out that a sugarcane plantation nearby was burning some cane and wind blew the ashes our way.
