Arenal Volcano

Active since 1968, the volcano puts on a spectacular show at night if it isn't obscured by the clouds.


At dusk you can begin to see the lava rushing down the mountain.

Tobacon Hot Spirngs

Here the hot water from a volcanic spring cascades through beautiful gardens. Find a shady pool in a quiet spot or sit beneath a waterfall in this idyllic tropical paradise. You can also pamper yourself with a massage or facial if you like.

Hanging Bridge

One finds many hanging bridges in the rainforests. This one is at the Arenal Observatory Lodge.
