The tour begins at 7:30 AM—you’ll be picked up from your hotel and head towards the Arenal Hanging Bridges. These bridges are set within one of the most important reserves in the area. The reserve has trails that run through the heart of the rainforest, as well as treetop suspension bridges. The suspension bridges extend through the forest canopy and give you the chance to see the forest from a different perspective. As you walk along the bridges, be on the lookout for birds, monkeys, and other animals.
The journey continues with a visit to the La Fortuna Waterfall. This waterfall is representative of the Arenal area and is absolutely stunning. The 195-foot (60-m) fall creates a natural fresh-water pool, which is perfect for travelers who are up for swimming. The waterfall is surrounded by lush rainforest and is extremely scenic. It’s a good place to take photographs and appreciate the scenery.
At 1:30 PM you’ll enjoy a typical lunch served by a Costa Rican family. The food is tasty and served in a pleasant open-air area. You’ll be dropped off at your hotel at 2:30 PM.

This was fabulous and our guide was great. Loved being able to take National Geographic-level photos through the spotter's scope they used. Beautiful!
Lunch at Rainforest Explorers was FANTASTIC! The food was great and the "Sour-...." drink was a great pleasure!
The guide was amazing! He always was on the lookout for animals to see! Saw many things that other tours would not have done
