These photos were taken between 10:00 and 11:30 pm from on of the Chalet buildings at the Arenal Lodge. The Volcano was not super active on this particular evening but the view was very clear and the silloute of the volcano was very impressive.
The Arenal Lodge is set way up on the hillside on the Western side of the Volcano and offers panoramic views of the Arenal Volcano and Lake Arenal. Because of its location on the Western side the Arenal Lodge always has a lava view whether the lava is flowing on the south west or the north west side of the volano.

To determine the current lava viewing angle you can use our Arenal volcano map. Also on our list of Arenal hotels, be sure to click the 'lava view hotels' link there to see only those hotels with a direct lava view, as this changes depending on the volcano activity. This page also lists a number of La Fortuna hotels.
