Ample outdoor activities, amazing forests, lake and hot springs.

 

One of the nicest volcanoes in Costa Rica, cloud forests, a lake world-famous for windsurfing and an incredibly diverse population of wildlife is just part of what you will find in this amazing area of Costa Rica. Probably the biggest attraction is its famous Arenal volcano. 

There are a couple of hiking tours avialble in the area which takes you to the closest point to admire this magnificent colossal. Near the volcano you will find the largest lake in Costa Rica, Lake Arenal. On Lake Arenal you will be able to practice windsurfing, kayaking, boating and fishing. Very close you can take a horseback riding tour to La Fortuna Waterfalls, an impressive 230 feet (70 meters) waterfall where you can take a refreshing plunge in its crystalline waters. 

The Tabacon River hot springs are another important attraction in the area where visitors can soak into its healing waters after a day of adventure in the area. Close to Arenal visitors can also experience canopy tours, white water rafting trips, a boat ride to Caño Negro Wildlife Refuge and the adventure of exploring the Venado Caverns.
