Arenal Volcano One Day Tour

On this tour, you’ll get to tour the area that surrounds the still-active Arenal Volcano, and take an educational walk through a humid forest.

Arenal Volcano One Day Tour

Arenal

Arenal Volcano erupted in 1968, and you can still see the hardened lava flow the eruption left behind. Because this volcano is still active, hikers aren’t allowed to get too close. But if it’s a clear day, you’ll be able to see some smoke billowing from the crater.

As you hike through the humid forest, your guide will show you some of the unusual species of ferns and bromeliads that grow in the area. You have a good chance of seeing monkeys, tropical birds, and leaf-cutter ants along the way.

After the hike, you’ll unwind in one of the nearby naturally heated hot springs. You can choose from several different hot springs in the area (although different rates apply). These hot springs are in beautifully landscaped spas that have nicely appointed restaurants where you’ll eat lunch. Visitors are also welcome to cozy up to the wet bars.

On the way back to Guanacaste, your group will stop for dinner at a restaurant in Tilarán.

Swim suit, hiking, binoculars, a camera, sunscreen, change of clothes, rain poncho, bug spray, sandals, a hat, and money for personal expenses (including a locker at the spa).
