This tour is aimed at travelers who have limited time in Arenal or those who simply want to enjoy the most of what this area has to offer.
Start the day with a guided hike through a forested reserve. The trails here wind through the rainforest and connect with suspension bridges that extend into the forest canopy. These bridges give travelers a unique view of the forest and offer up an excellent opportunity to spot birds, monkeys, and other creatures. Fruit is offered at the end of this activity.
Around 11:30 AM you’ll head to the La Fortuna Waterfall. Descend the 500 steps to reach the falls, which cascade about 200 feet (60 m) into a clear pool and are surrounded by lush forests. While here, you can take pictures, swim beneath the falls, or simply sit and enjoy the scenery. Around 1:30 PM you’ll visit a local family for a typical-style lunch. The lunch is tasty and served in an open-air area. Costa Rican coffee is offered before you head to the final activity.
At 3:00 PM the tour journeys to the Arenal Volcano National Park. This portion of the tour will teach you about the history and biodiversity of this important park. You’ll walk along forested trails and pass through a lava flow that dates to the 1992 eruption. The park enjoys excellent views of Lake Arenal and the Arenal Volcano.
After a full day spent exploring the Arenal area, you’ll return to your hotel around 6:00 PM.

Our guide, Tony, was incredible! He had sniper eyes and saw animals from long distances and in really obscure places. He even found a sloth while we were driving back to the hotels to do drop off, and we stopped to take pictures. Amazing!
Hansel was an excellent tour guide! Edgar was a fabulous driver and host at his family property for lunch! It was one of our best meals all week!
During this 3-hour hiking tour visitors will explore the rainforest via Sky Walk suspension bridges. These sturdy bridges form a path through the rainforest canopy. Visitors come here to safely scale the heights and to see the birds and monkeys that live in the treetops.
