Itinerary
Spend a day immersed in the geologic wonders and relaxing hot springs of Arenal. After morning pickup at your Guanacaste hotel, ride in a comfortable air-conditioned coach and enjoy a provided breakfast en route to Arenal Volcano National Park. Join your knowledgeable guide on a leisurely hike around the base of the volcano, which emits a steady stream of smoke, ash and lava. Rest assured that trails are carefully chosen for visitor safety.

Trek across open expanses of lava fields formed from previous eruptions and learn about the geologic history of this seismic wonder. Make your way through the lush greenery of the surrounding forest, where your guide will help you spot interesting plant species and native wildlife. Admire panoramic views of the volcano from a distance, and look for signs of activity shooting out of its crater.

Relax after your hike with a therapeutic soak at nearby Baldi Hot Springs. This family-friendly spa boasts 25 thermal pools of varying temperatures surrounded by beautiful tropical scenery. There’s something for everyone, including a swim-up bar, waterfall pools, a kids’ area with a splash zone and several exciting water slides. When hunger strikes, enjoy lunch (included) at the on-site restaurant. As dusk falls over Arenal, take in an enchanted atmosphere of steamy pools and emerging stars with views of the volcano in the distance.

Bask in your relaxed, blissful state on the ride back to your Guanacaste area hotel in the evening.
