This one is probably the Arenal Volcano tour you were looking for and couldn’t find anywhere on your internet search! Most of the tours from San Jose to the Arenal Volcano area offer just a visit to the Sarchi Oxcart Factory and the usual visit to the hot springs, but this Arenal Volcano Adventure Combo Tour will really show you the beauties of Costa Rica in one single day. On this tour we go along the less traveled “scenic route”, where we will take our time to show you a coffee plantation and do a “mini coffee tour” that includes degustation of our delicious Costa Rican coffee. After, we visit the famous “La Paz Waterfall” and the “San Fernando Waterfall”, as well as a hummingbird’s observation point and the famous “iguana bridge”, where you would have the chance to see lots of iguanas, sometimes hundreds of them.
Once in Arenal, we will treat you with an authentic Costa Rican lunch in our favorite restaurant in town, and after lunch, we take you to for a Rainforest Zip Lining Adventure (can be exchanged for a rainforest walk). Either activity includes a visit to a butterfly garden, colorful-tropical frog’s garden, a crocodile exhibit, a turtle’s exhibit and an interesting “leafcutter ants farm”, where you would be able to see these animals at work in a controlled environment.
Finally, time to just relax and think about the day you just had at the mineral waters of the hot springs, which are located at the base of the Arenal Volcano and surrounded by beautiful tropical gardens. At the end of the day, we would take you for dinner on the way back to San Jose.
* IMPORTANT NOTES:
- For those who don’t want to do zip lining, we include an interesting rainforest walk where we normally observe more wildlife.
- You must understand that this is a full day tour in which you might end up very tired depending on your physical condition, but the advantage is that you would see more on this tour than any other Arenal Volcano tour offered from San Jose.
- If the zip lining tour has to be canceled due to any reason (weather, maintenance, etc.), a rainforest walk would be done instead.
VERY scenic ride through volcanoes, plantations & jungles!
