19 Views of Volcán Arenal

Inspired by Hokusai's “Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji.” (The original spelling of the volcano’s name has been preserved.)
I could only get roughly ½ of the number of views that Hokusai has, but this stimulates me to come back.
Note that during the high season people usually see clouds instead of the volcano, but September is the best month to see this natural wonder. We enjoyed its unobstructed view from our hotel room every morning (I got the room in the front row facing the volcano). And of course, we saw it from several other locations.
