Arenal Volcano Tour Reviews

Outstanding and Highly Recommended
5 - Excellent
“Exceeded our expectations, well-structured and narrated. Alberto was an enthusiastic guide and pointed out a lot of wildlife that our untrained eyes would have missed. The top-notch company never made us feel rushed and was very patient with questions. Would not hesitate to book with them again! We really enjoyed this week in Costa Rica with Greenway Tours.”
Fantastic time in Caribbean coast and La Fortuna!
5 - Excellent
  • Zainab Hakim
“We had a great time and liked every place and activity that was part of the trip. The transfers were well coordinated and always on time. Most hotel accommodations were good and location was central to other activities. We were able to customize the itinerary to include Caribbean coast which was also really nice!”
Fabulous Coast to Coast Trip in Costa Rica
5 - Excellent
  • Matthias Henze
“The trip, our first to CR, was amazing and went very smoothly. Thanks for your great organization! The guides we had were outstanding, and we saw so many beautiful things. Time to plan our next trip to CR!”

Arenal Volcano - Tour Highlights and Travel Tips

On clear days, the symmetrical cone of Arenal Volcano is visible for miles and up until 2010, the volcano offered spectacular volcanic shows at night. Since then, the volcano has been quiet. Also within the national park is the older Chato Volcano towering into the sky some 1,100. 

The Arenal Volcano National Park is a natural wonderland of native fauna, flora and wildlife of the region. Once you throw in some natural hot springs; waterfalls and numerous hiking trails, you know you are in a special place. As you wander the extensive circuit of trails, you witness fabulous scenery of ancient lava flows and secondary growth forests. A large majority of the native 850 bird species reside within the national park including the endangered resplendent quetzal and wildlife sightings range from white-faced capuchin monkeys to deer, coati and tapirs. Your eyes will feast on gorgeous plant life too, including heliconias, bromeliads and hundreds of orchid species.

Tour Highlights

  • No trip to Costa Rica would be complete without relaxing in one of the thermal springs near the Arenal volcano. The geothermal water gets heated underground and retunrs to the surface laden with minerals.
  • Go boating or fishing on Lake Arenal which supplies 12% of the country’s electricity.
  • Hike or ride on a horseback to La Fortuna waterfall and take your swim suit.
  • Try an exhilarating zipline tour or walk through the lush canopy on a series of hanging bridges.

Travel Tips

  • The only place to stay within the park boundaries is the Arenal Observation Lodge and Spa. You can get a spectacular view of Arenal by climbing “The Nest”, an observation tower located within the Lodge.
  • La Fortuna has a plethora of accommodations from camping to hostels to spa resorts. 
  • Arenal Volcano National Park is a 3-hour trip from Liberia or San Jose. You can also find a variety of half and full-day excursions from the Guanacaste region.
  • Expect crowds during high season (December to mid-May). This is the most visited volcano in Costa Rica.
