After a couple hours on the Hanging Bridges, we serve a tropical fruit snack for you to recover from the hike and taste a delicious and sweet local fruit. A highlight of the day comes next, after a 30 minutes scenic drive!!
Its time for the famous La Fortuna Waterfall, a MUST TO SEE! Whether you plan on swimming or not, this 246 feet tall waterfall coming from the middle of the mountain is breathtaking. An observation platform offers a great view from the top right before you start the walk through 498 steps down to reach the swimming hole, your guide will guide you through and watch your belongings while you swim. You must bring a towel with you if you plan on swimming. After refreshing in the clear water, you will climb up back the 498 steps, you can do it at your own pace.

Vegetarian option is always available.
After a 20 minutes drive we will reach a world's famous one, Arenal Volcano. Even though is has been visible from the distance all day, at this point we will be on a 2 hours walk at the base of him and through ancient lava flows, allowing us for breathtaking observation points and learning interesting facts and history that our local guide has to share with you. Walking to the crater is forbidden, due to the unexpected gases and rough terrain, there is not even a trail there, you will be at the base of the volcano overlooking the giant mountain and enjoying the rain forest at the base of it.
On top of Arenal wonders, Tabacon Hot Springs offers a natural thermal river that flows through the gardens, to make you feel like in paradise. There are five different springs with temperatures ranging from 25 degrees Celsius (77 degrees Fahrenheit) to 50 degrees Celsius (122 degrees Fahrenheit). Perfect for families and couples.

This extraordinary day is accomplished, leaving a very good taste of Arenal wonders and everlasting memories. We will drop you off back at your hotel.
This was one of our best days in Costa Rica and all were excellent. We learned so much about the rain forest, Costa Rica history and enjoyed each part of the tour. This tour was an a great way to see many things if you like to try to pack in as much as you can to your trip. We are an active family but we were all tired at the end of the day, so the hot springs was a great way to end the day. Lots of steps at La Fortuna falls!
I canâ€™t explain how amazing this tour was!!! Our guide Tony was the best and he made it so special!! I loved every minute of the 12 hour day.
Excellent guides and a lot of fun. Edgar's home was beautiful and his farm was great to explore, he generously detoured to show us these. The guide Tony was very knowledgeable and kept us informed all through the tour.
Excellent experience! Would highly recommend to all travelers.
