You’ll visit the Arenal Volcano National Park and learn about both the history and biodiversity of this incredible park.

As you walk through the park’s rainforests, be on the lookout for birds, monkeys, and other animals. You’ll enjoy wonderful views of Lake Arenal and the Arenal Volcano.

A visit to the La Fortuna Waterfall is a must when visiting Arenal. The waterfall is large and impressive and surrounded by lush trees. You’ll descend some 500 steps to reach the waterfall. Once here, you’ll have the opportunity to swim, take photos, or simply enjoy the scenery.

Between these activities, you’ll enjoy a delicious typical lunch. Bottled water and fruit are provided at other points during the tour.

Traveler Comments

The tour was good and our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. Was a bit disappointed that the volcano hike was very short as it was getting dark. Not sure if we ran out of time and why. The organic farm/restaurant visited for lunch was a highlight. Ran by a beautiful and welcoming family, great food and amazing views of the birds on the feeder. Even a sloth! Amazing
