Spend a day immersed in the geologic wonders and relaxing hot springs of Arenal. After morning pickup at your Guanacaste hotel, ride in a comfortable air-conditioned coach and enjoy a provided breakfast en route to Arenal Volcano National Park. Join your knowledgeable guide on a leisurely hike around the base of the volcano, which emits a steady stream of smoke, ash and lava. Rest assured that trails are carefully chosen for visitor safety.

Trek across open expanses of lava fields formed from previous eruptions and learn about the geologic history of this seismic wonder. Make your way through the lush greenery of the surrounding forest, where your guide will help you spot interesting plant species and native wildlife. Admire panoramic views of the volcano from a distance, and look for signs of activity shooting out of its crater.

Relax after your hike with a therapeutic soak at nearby Baldi Hot Springs. This family-friendly spa boasts 25 thermal pools of varying temperatures surrounded by beautiful tropical scenery. There’s something for everyone, including a swim-up bar, waterfall pools, a kids’ area with a splash zone and several exciting water slides. When hunger strikes, enjoy lunch (included) at the on-site restaurant. As dusk falls over Arenal, take in an enchanted atmosphere of steamy pools and emerging stars with views of the volcano in the distance.

Bask in your relaxed, blissful state on the ride back to your Guanacaste area hotel in the evening.

Excellent scenic tour

Bit of a ride from the Tamarindo area and the roads are windy, but so worth it. Beautiful area. Our guide, Jose from Central American tours was top notch and spotted a lot of wild life during the hanging bridges tour. We even stopped on the side of the road and got to see three sloths! Highly recommended!

Wonderful day! Great, small group. I went alone and the other four people were a group but were so friendly. The guide was wonderful, knowledgeable and really accommodating for everyone's needs to/from the destination. The highlight was the hot springs, a wonderful, relaxing place!

Outstanding. We had a nice small group which was helpful for getting the max out of our guide Jose’s depth of knowledge. Breakfast was delicious and from a stunning view of Lake Arenal. The hole through the rainforest that followed was fascinating and helped immensely by our eagle eyed guide. Lunch was great and could not have had a better view of the volcano. A long day of travel but the trip description had us well prepared for this. Hot springs were a nice visit.

Fantastic Way to Spend the Day!

My wife, son and I took this tour and loved it. The hike in the rain forest was about 2.5 miles. The terrain was not too steep. The hanging bridges were a great way to see everything. Our tour guide, Arturo, was knowledgeable, pointing out many things that most people were passing by. The views of the volcano were not that great, because of low hanging clouds, but that was ok. It did clear up later, so we were able to see a bit more. The hot springs are actually in a hotel, but still fun. Some tips - wear comfortable shoes and be prepared to walk.

Trip to volcano, hanging bridge...

Trip to volcano, hanging bridge, breakfast and lunch was amazing! The only minor disappointment was the hot springs. I should have read description a bit more carefully as they were man made-not the natural as I expected. Tour guide, Juan was fantastic, extremely knowledgeable, and always concerned about our well being. Transportation was in a luxury air conditioned bus. This tour is a must!
