    Stop At: Ecoterra Costa Rica, Arenal Volcano National Park, La Fortuna de San Carlos Costa Rica

    The tour begins at 07:30am or 2:30pm from your hotel’s lobby, in order to reach El Silencio Private Reserve, to reach as close to the Arenal Volcano as permitted by car. From there, we will begin a 1 km walk along a trail of volcanic rock, rated as moderate in difficulty, to reach the observation point, which is the closest to the base of the volcano we can legally get. At the observation point, your guide will provide interesting information regarding the formation of the Arenal Volcano, its periods of activity, and unedited details of its major eruption in 1968, as well as giving you the opportunity to enjoy the incredible views of the Arenal Volcano and the Arenal Lake. Afterwards, we will begin our return trip down the same trail to the starting point.

    For the next stage of the expedition, we will change scenery and enter into the regenerating forest and small area of primary rainforest found at the base of the Arenal Volcano. This trail is about 1.5 km, in length, and with a little luck, you will have the opportunity to discover a large variety of flora and fauna, including toucans, wild turkeys, orioles, wild boars, snakes, and monkeys.

    After the trails, your driver will be waiting for you, with a delicious snack of tropical fruit, before returning you to your hotel in La Fortuna to enjoy the remainder of your stay.

    If you prefer, you can visit the hot springs of your choice for an approximately 3 hours, for an additional cost. After giving you time to enjoy these natural thermal waters, we will return to pick you up in our modern mini-vans to take you to your hotel.

    We had the best experience with Ecoterra, from the transportation, to the beautiful hotels, and the one time we had an issue, it was handled quickly and efficiently by our Jordy. We would definitely use them again if we return to Costa Rica!
