Of course you need to visit the imposing volcano national park, there are many trails to follow, or more than one if you feel like exploring it at its best, you can hike around the rainforest the surrounding it, climb up a little by following the lava trails made by the latest explosions, make it up (to the allowed area) and see the wonderful views, the lake and all what it represents.

The hanging bridges is another classic tours you just cannot miss, they will combine the long bridges in the heights along with some ground hiking and this way be able to get the best perspective of the rainforest, from above and below, see the differences, what animals live higher, what type of flora can be found at both scenarios, is truly a fantastic experience, great to learn and admire both faces of the forest.

Another tour that is a must do when visiting Arenal is visiting the La Fortuna Waterfall, you will start going downstairs through the forest to find at the end the amazing jewel that is the waterfall, with fresh, clean water coming from the mountains and its magnificence will take your breath away… you will want to jump into the water, swim towards the fall and experience what the real rainforest is all about.
