What You Can Expect
Walk to viewing platforms for an unbeatable view of the peak, which reaches 5,436 feet (1,657 meters) above sea level. You may be able to see plumes of smoke and rivers of molten lava streaming from the active cauldron. Be assured that the volcano is carefully monitored for activity and trails are chosen for visitor safety.
After a lunch of typical Costa Rican cuisine, it’s time to relax at one of the area’s popular natural hot springs. Try out many geothermal pools of varying temperatures to find your favorite, and enjoy the beautiful tropical surroundings. From secluded pools to cascading waterfalls, soak up the restorative properties of volcanic mineral water and take in views of the sputtering volcano in the distance.
This tour was excellent! Be aware that it is about 4 hours to get there and another 4 back, and it's a winding ride (definitely not a good choice for those with motion sickness). The tour guide and driver were absolutely awesome. They were happy to answer any questions we had about Costa Rican culture, vegetation, economy, local festivals, and etc. The Baldi hot springs were amazing, and we had a good 4 hours to try out each of the beautifully landscaped pools ranging from cool to steamy warm.
Wow! It is very difficult to put into words the experience we had at Arenal Volcano and Hot Springs. Anyone Visiting Costa Rica this a place to visit. Viator is the company to go with. Their drivers and guides go out of their way to make you feel comfortable and to explain the history and culture. Just what we were looking for, amazing! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND VIATOR
The hot springs were amazing. The scenery was beautiful. It was like an escape to paradise.

It was interesting to discover the 5 stars hotel and spa for testing the hot spring! Nice moments of relaxation!!! But to be in a car 8 hours and never have a explanation about the places seen on the window, or history or culture about the country was rather disappointing. The guide was not able to have a discussion in English or Spanish and never was able to answer our questions about the region we visit!!!! The atitude was so strange, he told us at the bigining of the day that he is tired but he is happy to do this job beacause he can eat at 5 stars restaurant with tourists like us??!!!!! We saw the Arenal from far....The guide ask more money if we want to see a water fall who was 5 km further...we refused this "offer", but it was so strage,we've already payed a lot for this trip!
