    Itinerary
    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Arenal Volcano National Park 21007 Costa Rica

    This is a unique opportunity where you can hike around an active volcano! Don't worry, it's not throwing lava anymore but it certainly left the lava trails where you will be walking around and be as close from this colossus and everything it represents such as the rainforest, home of animals, culture, amazing views and fascinating history!

    Duration: 2 hours 30 minutes

    Stop At: Arenal Hanging Bridges, Arenal Volcano National Park 21007 Costa Rica

    At the hanging bridges you will be hiking while combining the fascinating hanging bridges with ground hikes among the rainforest.

    A series of hanging bridges are connected at this nice park so you can walk on them and be able to observe what the real rainforest looks like from the heights... Even though you will be hanging up in the treetops you will be able to see much wildlife action and birds and learn of a different way of life from the heights.

    Duration: 2 hours 30 minutes

    Pass By: Lake Arenal, Arenal Volcano National Park, La Fortuna de San Carlos Costa Rica

    You will pass through the dam that shows the open way of the gorgeous and giant Arenal Lake!

    Stop At: La Fortuna Waterfall, Arenal Volcano National Park, La Fortuna de San Carlos 106-4417 Costa Rica

    To get to the magnificent waters of the waterfall a 20 minute hike down 500 stairs will be required, don't panic! Is not as bad as it sounds... you will be with your guide overlooking at the beauty of the canyon that opens in front of you and you will go slow, at your own pace, trust me, it is worth it!

    Once you reach the ground, take some time to feel yourself immerse in nature and all it represents to you, is the perfect way to relax, just let go and think of anything else but the moments you are having.

    Jump in to the water, explore, swim and have a great time before getting back up on the same trail... but again, slowly!

    At the waterfall you have 2 options:

    1. Do the hike as described

    2. Stay up at the main facilities, there is a restaurant to have a drink, bathrooms and changing rooms and a nice observatory so you can look down to the waterfall and wait for the group to get back up and take you to taste a fine lunch!


    Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

    Stop At: Rain Forest Explorers, Arenal Volcano National Park, La Fortuna de San Carlos 21007 Costa Rica

    After a nice hike and swim at the waterfall La Familia Rodriguez will be waiting for you with the perfect lunch to recover the energy!

    They will serve a really tasteful traditional lunch, cooked with local farm and organic ingredients and giving it the love touch for what will be the best meal you will have while in Costa Rica!

    Share sometime at the family ranch and share lunch with them, is a good way to make new friends and learn about our culture.

    After a homemade cup of coffee and relaxing by the sounds of the water running from the river is time to continue our day adventure and heads towards the volcano.

    Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

    Hanzel! What an amazing tour guide. Apparently I came during the low season and was the only one on this tour. We really took our time in each location, and my wonderful guide took what felt like hundreds of photos of me to remember the experience. La Fortuna is simply beautiful

    This tour was amazing and led by one of the greatest guides I've had for any trip: Hansel (Hanzel?)! During the Hanging Bridges part of the tour, he managed to spot so many animals for us that we would never have been able to find on our own. Other tour guides even started

    We had a great time on this tour. The guides were well informed, lively, and funny. We saw a lot of wildlife that you won’t see if you go alone. The authentic lunch they provide is to die for. All three places we visited were totally worth the time. Even my teenagers enjoyed it.
