Arenal Volcano and Tabacón Hot Spring

After breakfast, drive towards the famous Arenal Volcano. Few sites in Costa Rica inspire more respect and admiration. At 1670 metres, with a crater of 140 metres in diameter, the Arenal is considered a young volcano, estimated to be less than 7,500 years old and remains Costa Rica’s most active volcano. Its tall and conical shape stands imposing over the pastured green hillsides that surround its base. On the way to La Fortuna, a stop is made in Sarchi, the country's most famous crafts and souvenir town. Lunch is in a traditional restaurant with an excellent view of the volcano. Sail the Arenal Lake after lunch. End the afternoon with a relaxing visit to one of the best local thermal springs, Tabacon. Private transfer to your hotel for a 2 night stay.

DAY 3

Sky walk and Hanging bridges

Morning guided walk through the rainforest, incorporating the famous hanging bridges. Located within the corridor followed by birds migrating between North and South America, the trails and bridges will bring the visitor as close as you could ever imagine to observing the birds, the flowers and the lush vegetation of the primary rainforest. The property has impressive views of the Arenal Volcano and the lake that feeds the largest hydroelectric plant in Costa Rica. This walk is a fun and educational way to learn more about the forest and the local environment and enjoy the close contact with nature. Suitable for all ages and fitness levels, a perfect activity to do with the family.
