Arenal, famous for its active volcano and lake renowned for world class windsurfing, is located in the surrounding region. This Costa Rican ecological treasure, the Caño Negro Wildlife Refuge, is the natural habitat of more than 350 species of birds, as well as the emerald basilisk, iguanas, river turtles, caimans, jaguars, ocelots, giant anteaters, monkeys, and many more wildlife species. Fantastic fishing excursions are available with knowledgeable guides that will take you on half or full day trips. Biking on the dirt roads is a great way to get to know the area as is the walking tour which takes you through local villages with excellent bird watching opportunities along the way. Also try exploring the refuge by canoe, paddling down the Caño Negro canals, which are abundant in wildlife.
