What You Can Expect

Arenal Volcano and Hot Springs Day Trip from Guanacaste

Scarlet Macaw in Costa Rica

Depart from your Guanacaste-area hotel upon pickup for an amazing day in Arenal Volcano National Park. When you arrive, follow your expert local guide on a gentle hike along the volcano's base, keeping a safe distance away from the crater – active since 1968.

You’ll see regenerating secondary forest and lava fields, evidence from previous eruptions. Head to a safe viewing area to experience the thundering volcano – one of the most active in the Western Hemisphere. Learn about the geological complexity of the 5,000-foot (1,524-meter) giant as you take in the views of Guanacaste’s green hillsides.

Traveling through the lush rainforest on the eastern slope of this majestic natural attraction, your guide will point out the native flora as well as many species of birds. You’ll learn about this unique ecosystem of Costa Rica, a country that includes six percent of the world’s biodiversity.

After your hike, it's time to relax at Baldi Hot Springs, which consists of several therapeutic pools of varying temperature. Enjoy a complimentary lunch and spend the afternoon soaking in the rejuvenating mineral pools.

In the evening, dine under the stars and admire great views of Arenal Volcano as it erupts – the thrilling show of bright red and orange lava will take your breath away! Afterward, your guide will drop you off at your Guanacaste-area hotel.
