Arenal Volcano National Park Tours and Activities

star-5
2,245 Reviews

Although visitors once flocked to Arenal Volcano for its impressive lava shows, the 5,437-foot (1,657-meter) volcano has stayed quiet since its last eruption in 2010. However, Arenal and the surrounding Arenal Volcano National Park remain a hot spot for visitors to Costa Rica, and is especially popular among those seeking hiking trails, swimming holes, hot springs, bird- and wildlife-watching, and sweeping views of the tropical rain forest.

We will start walking around the ponds –an oasis of life-, where we can find some amphibians such as the poison-dart frog, leopard frog, Ghost glass frog, red-eyed leaf frog, bullfrog, wet forest toad, just to mention a few. Our expert guide will teach us every detail about this marvelous ecosystem and with some luck, we may find some inhabitants of the night such as bats, spiders, butterflies, birds, basilisks, and snakes among others. Which made everything more interesting is the way these species interact with each other within the vegetation and the ponds.
