    “Excellent”
    Amazing views of scenery and wildlife Reviewed Tour: Arenal Volcano Trip
    Vladimir Barash From USA
    5 - Excellent
    “This is an absolutely incredible tour -- our guide Jason was both very informative and very helpful. He explained the history of the Arenal volcano to us, we took a short hike a small part of the way up the mountain, and then went back down to look at wildlife in the rainforest. We saw spider monkeys, which Jason said are a pretty rare sight, and then a red curacao just walked out onto the trail in front of us! It was an incredible feeling to just be seeing all these animals spontaneously on a nature hike.

    Speaking of hikes, it is important to be aware that this tour is somewhat physically demanding. There are no extreme parts, just some strenuous walking over very uneven ground, but I think the tour description could do a better job of emphasizing the challenge. At the same time, the tour is extremely convenient in terms of picking you up and dropping you off at your desired location, whether a hotel, hot springs, or somewhere else. Overall, I strongly recommend the Arenal Volcano trip to anyone who is into volcanoes and wildlife and plans to visit the Arenal area.”

    La Fortuna - Tour Highlights and Travel Tips

    Ever since the previously dormant Arenal Volcano erupted violently in 1968, La Fortuna has experienced a boom in tourism. For many years following the eruption, the volcano continued to spew lava, and visitors travelled from far and wide to visit La Fortuna and witness the spectacular fire show. The volcano has since calmed but the area has remained popular and many still tour to La Fortuna to see the conical volcano as well as to take advantage of the wealth of other attractions the area has to offer.

    Tour Highlights

    La Fortuna boasts of many things to do. From outdoor activities like hiking near a volcano to soaking in a thermal pool. Once you've reached La Fortuna, you will be spoiled for choice: 

    • Arenal volcano, one of the country’s most visited sights, is the main reason why tourism has exploded in La Fortuna in recent decades.
    • The area boasts many rewarding hiking trails in the dry tropical forests around the volcano, offering the chance to catch sight of local wildlife.
    • The volcano heats geothermal springs in the area, which can be enjoyed in dedicated resorts or just ‘wild’, out in the forest.
    • The La Fortuna waterfall is one of the area’s must-see attractions and offers visitors the chance to take a refreshing dip in the pool at the bottom.
    • Take a trip to Lake Arenal to enjoy the many water-based activities on offer there.
    • Hike to the crater of the area’s ‘other’ volcano, Chato. This one is not active, and the challenging slog to the top is rewarded by an attractive crater lake.

    Travel Tips

    • Tours are offered to most of the attractions in the area but many of the activities such as hiking are easy to do independently. This can be a good way to save some money (although you still need to pay the entry fee of USD 15 for the Arenal Volcano National Park).
    • There are many ways to reach La Fortuna from San Jose, the capital of Costa Rica. Car rentals, shuttles and flights are easily available. 
    • Mid-April to November is the rainy season and is best avoided.
    • ATMs are widely available in La Fortuna town
